what year? what model?


Recommended Posts

I just picked up a '1978 504' in theory. The problem is it doesnt have any documents, number plates or exterior badges. It does have 'Elite 2.2' on the dash centre console, a galvanised chassis and an autobox with power steering.

 

Is there a VIN decoder for Lotus cars I could use to check?

Pm me the engine number and I can tell you what spec it is and what it is meant to be powering. The plaque at the top of the pillar is another clue. It should say 504, but if it says "world champion car constructors" the the badge was originally from an s2

Sounds like an S2 to me.

If you contact Andy Graham at Lotus Archives you can purchase the certificate which will tell you how the car left the factory. email [email protected]
