Look at the 10th character in the VIN, if that's 'F' it's a modelyear 1985.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

As Filip says, or if you've ever looked at your front brakes & suspension (they were one of the big changes), then prior to MY 1985  they were a solid disc with Lucas calipers and trunnions at the bottom of the upright.  MY 1985 onwards, Toyota-based calipers with vented discs and balljoints.
