1976 LOTUS ELITE 501 Type 75 ~ Genuine Barn Find ~ SOLD

The Lotus Elite is now a rare car as according to the web site - details above there only 284 examples of this model Lotus Elite on the DVLA register.

This car is a genuine barn find having being stored inside a farm building since being taken off the road in 1990 and is being sold as a restoration project.

It was registered new in January 1976 and specified with the 1973cc engine and a manual gearbox.

It is now MOT exempt and qualifies for free historic road tax.

The engine is not seized and spins over when a temporary battery is fitted. The ignition system is creating a spark at the plugs but we have not attempted to start it as we recommend that the timing belt and oil is changed before trying to start the engine. It will also need the fuel system draining of old petrol.

The offside rear wheel is leaning out as the hub carrier is damaged. A new hub carrier can be bought for £186 + vat from JS Sportscars, the Lotus Heritage Dealers.

Prospective buyers are welcome to come and view the car in our Leeds showroom.

If this Lotus Elite is restored to a good standard and put back on the road it should turn out to be an excellent investment.

UK wide professional delivery is available. Please ring for a quote. We are also happy to deliver to any mainland port for export.
