Comments: This is a very original Lotus Elan Sprint FHC, now restored to the original colour scheme (Lotus LO14) of Colorado Orange over Cirrus White, with correct side decals and correct badges and gold bumpers together with satin black wheels. Fitted with a 5-speed Lotus gearbox by the factory in about 1973. One family owned before myself, with a fair bit of history. Since buying the car and as well as having it repainted I have replaced all suspension bushes, doughnuts, brake calipers and discs, and many other parts, bringing the car back to nice driving condition. It goes very well!
