Sports Car: 1971 Lotus Europa

This next car comes as a tip from Carter who writes: Personally it looks like an offspring of a VW Doka meets a Triumph Spitfire, but being a Lotus, I am sure it has a following. Find this 1971 Lotus Europa offered for $6,000 in Maine via craigslist.


 From the seller:
Early Europa unrestored, needs work in and out. Engine compression even 145-150 on a rebuilt OHV 1.7 motor. Excellent tires on period BWA alloy wheels. Stored inside last ten years. Must sell before winter.

  1. What is more rare,
    Finding one of these that runs, or
    Someone who hasn't been groped in Hollywood?
    Tough question

  2. Seems to be a S2 type 54 that has been partially backdated to look like a S1 type 46. IE turn signal delete but windows that open. I think that in a car that can hide behind a sofa turn signals would be a good thing.

    I'll be amazed if Rob Siegel isn't already on his way up there with a trailer in tow.
