Help with a barn find.

Hi folks! I sent a message to Lotus today and they have recommended me to join this forum. I've just bought an original 1963 Lotus Super Seven, it's matching numbers and still has the original 1500cc twin Weber engine. It looks untouched and has been sat for decades in Italy, it was driven over there in the early 70's and left. All I'd like to know is what's not factory on the car, I can see it's got a fuel gauge on it which wasn't original but there is probably more. 

Many thanks,

I'm sure @Guy Munday would be able to help, there's not much he doesn't know about the Seven. Welcome, and congrats on a special find too :)

Welcome to TLF Paul. :welcome:

An original 7. Have to be happy with that.

You should duck over to the Introductions section and say hi in there as well. :) 

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Opinions are like armpits. Everyone has them, some just stink more than others.
