Most of the repair records going back to when the car was new. There are also a number of manuals, miscellaneous parts (including carb jets and a new front bumper) and pictures of the car before it was repainted. The car has been garage kept since painted.
The first owner was in Arizona and the second owner in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.
The engine and transmission were rebuilt by Dave Bean Engineering. The car has headers and braided steel brake lines as well as high performance tires. The engine has the "big valve" heads and it apparently has high compression pistons and high performance cams judging by the performance. It also has a high performance starter motor. This Lotus is very fast but idles rough due to the big cam at low RPMs.
The chassis is very tight, and the engine 150Lbs compression on all cylinders. The car was repainted BRG-the original color was red. All electrics and vacuum devices work. There is no rust evident anywhere. The battery is 6 months old.
The seats and carpets have been redone as close to original as possible. And new a set of new seat belts were added. There is no radio-it's a drivers car. All the transmission is close ratio and very slick. Controls are light to the touch and response is instant.
