Description for Lotus Esprit 1977

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this attractive and desirable early Lotus Esprit. This car was just purchased from the state of Texas where it had been stored for the past few years. The car appears highly original with a nice repaint in it’s original color. It’s engine currently runs well but the car could use some easy mechanical recommissioning before it returns to the road.The bodywork on this car is in overall excellent original shape with great shutlines and nice fitting panels. The car was repainted at some point in it’s recent past. The paintwork shows lovely and glossy with barely a few chips or blemishes. It shows excellent and crisp, and would be perfect on a very nice everyday driver. The rear bumper on the car could use replacement or repair.The car’s interior looks 100% original and pretty untouched. The fabric has faded a bit in the US climate, and might be able to be improved by dyeing, if one was devoted to keeping the original trim. The wood steering wheel is a nice touch matching the original carpets.The car’s engine runs on a can of ether and a fresh battery, and sounds extremely robust and healthy (see video). A small recommissioning to the brake and clutch hydraulics and fuel system should have the car back on the road in no time. The engine currently fitted to the car we believe is from a Jensen Healey, but the original numbers matching long block that the car was born with is included with the sale of the car (see pics).The car’s underside looks quite tidy and clean overall. Included is also the original jack and handle in it’s factory bag, rare factory tool kit, engine area tonneau cover, Lotus parts book, workshop manual.Overall, a very attractive and presentable running early Esprit accompanied with it’s matching numbers engine. This rare car is a smart bet going forward with only 718 units produced for the world.Please look at all pictures and call or email with any questions.We will assist in shipping worldwide.
