1972 Lotus Super Seven

This is an original 1972 Lotus super seven. It is NOT a replica or a Caterham. This is a genuine Lotus car made in England and in very good original condition. It is a series 4 GT with a ford kent 1600 engine.
The metal chassis is in great condition with no rust or damage. The glass-fibre body is also in excellent shape. The car looks to have been originally yellow with a thorough re-spray to black at some point in its life and although the paint has some chips, cratches and touch ups here and there overall it still looks very nice and shiny.
The Interior is also in good condition. The seats are nice. carpets are old but in fair condition. The tachometer, peedometer, il pressure, mp and water temp gauges are all working. The fuel gauge moves but doesn't seem very accurate. The wipers work (could use new blades). The heater and blower motor work great. The lights are all working.
The engine starts very easily and runs great. It idles nice and has good power with great oil pressure. The gearbox shifts perfectly through all gears without any problems. The brakes and clutch work perfect both have all new or rebuilt hydraulic parts . The tyres are in good condition and the alloy wheels are nice (one has a little curb cosmetic damage). The cooling system works great.
The side curtains/doors with sliding plastic windows are in good condition. The vinyl convertible top is decent. It is coming apart a bit at the front where is connects to the windscreen but is still very usable.
Overall this car is in very good condition but of course not perfect, lthough it runs really well the rings seem a bit weak and it smokes a bit when pushed hard, t could probably use new rings and the cylinders honed although it is quite drivable as is. There is a crack in the fibergalss where the spare wheel attaches. It's hard to spot and would be completely covered by the spare wheel if it was installed. I do not have a spare wheel/tyre for it. There is no air cleaner installed. It would need a very thin one or some creative ducting to fit under the bonnet.
It comes with an older but clear California title. It looks to have been last licensed in 1983. This car is perfect for track days, intage racing or just plain fun.
