Most Recent Owners Upkeep 

All upkeep and parts have been fastidiously been kept original by where possible and absolutely never tweaked, modernised or breathed on. Always used parts from (in order of preference): factory, OEM, LOC certified/recommended or refurbished parts. 

Engine restored by GST Lotus in 2009 – from Gerald of GST on 2009: “that engine now runs better that the original even did”. Regular serviced and tuned by GST Lotus & SW Lotus.

Turbo refurbished by GST Lotus recommended Essex Turbos in 2009. New Turbo exhaust manifold in 2009. Various other updates in the 3 years of ownership: 4 more pages of new parts and replacements from the restoration work in 2009 plus new rear and front disks, new exhaust manifold, new factory nose badge, new fuel pump, new main cylinder, new front ARB bushes, new gas struts for the engine cover and new, correct size Pirellis last year and more. 

Currently runs but needs a piston replacement. This is an interesting and fun job for the right person but too time consuming for me so I’m passing a fun and enjoyable project to a new owner. 

This colour does not come up that often particularly with such mileage.

63,000 miles. price ono. Sold as seen. Spare parts and workshop manuals also come with the car.
