This is a genuine opportunity for a Lotus enthusiast to purchase a Lotus Excel SE that has the potential to be one of the best remaining examples. The car has covered an indicated 60000 miles which we perceive to be genuine. The body has had a full professional respray and and is subsequently in excellent condition all round. Equally impressive is the interior which is completely original and has stood the test of time extremely well. The wheels too are original and will be professionally refurbished and fitted with new tyres. Bought by its previous owner 8 years ago, the car was initially taken off the road due to ill health five years ago. Sadly the owner subsequently died and his wife held on to the car until this Autumn when it was decided the car had to go. We have subsequently fully assessed the car and are now in the process of refurbishment.We have removed the gearbox and engine. The gearbox, which have a reputation for being durable, has been checked, fitted with a new clutch and will be filled with fresh oil. The engine is currently at a specialist where the head is being removed and skimmed, the bottom end checked and then reassembled with a refurbished water pump and new gaskets, belts and seals. The underside, which was in very good condition has been cleaned and will be given fresh paint, cavity wax and protective sealant as appropriate. Finishing touches will then be completed and the car will then be road tested and MOT'd prior to final sale. There is a box folder or receipts and we have the full V5 correctly registered with HPi check completed. If you are interested in the viewing and potentially purchasing the finished car, then please give Andy a call.
