1971 Lotus Other

Hello, everyone, so a little history about this car. This car was owned by a gentlemanwho used it for about 10 years before he stored it in his garage ever since. He was the original owner and purchased it back in 1971. Here is my progress with the car currently. The engine can turn, and the car needs minor cosmetic work. In order to get the engine running, I needed to fix the cooling system. The water pump was broken, and the aluminum pipes were corroded. So luckily after much search, I found a brand new water pump and radiator hose fittings. I've acquired many parts as well to finish the motor. However, I am at a stopping point now since I need to disassemble the whole car to get to the aluminum pipes of the cooling system, and I don't have that much space since I live in an apartment. This project is about 70% done and if your good with CC engines this might be great for you. This thing looks incredible in person! The car is exactly 42 inches tall; that's 2 inches taller than a Ford GT40. It has such a quirky and fun shape people who own other Europas call it the bread car. I really love this car so I'm excited to see someone else finish the project!
