1971 Lotus Europa

You are looking at a rare 1971 Lotus Europa. This is a Europeanversion with twin fuel tanks. According to the documentsI have the motor is a Renault Gordini Alpine1580 hemi head racing motor with twin SK racing carbs, and I have the receiptsshowing the rebuild of the motor in 1988. The car has a rare set of 1988 Panasport competition wheels on it, and I do have the original 1988 receiptfor these as well. Adding some history to the car, I do also have a original 1989 type document by the Vice President of a financial firm out of Chicago, who used the car primarily for vintage racing and street. He had all of the work done to the car in the late 1980's and early 1990's. And I do have all of his personal typed, and handwritten documentsthat show what he bought or did to the car including purchase receiptsthrough those years for the car. There is a title for the car. The car was sitting for some time before I recentlyacquiredit. I was able to shoot a quick video of the car idling, but I have not done or checked anything else with the car so I am going to list it as a non running project, since everything should be gone throughbefore running or driving. Message me if you would like to see the video and I can text or email it to you. I have provided over 100 pictures in this listing, so I am going to let them do the talking for me, but please ask all questions before bidding.
