Time for a retirement project clear out, so this is gonna REALLY hurt.

What we have here is a 1972 Lotus Europa TC. Sort of Colin Chapmans answer to the GT-40. And every bit as groundbreaking for it’s time.

This project in pieces, and parts inventory is complete EXCEPT for the engine. So you can either finish it with a Lotus Twin Cam engine (rare, but still feasible to find one) OR you can benefit from the adaptor plate (that comes with the project) for a Toyota 4-AGE Twin Cam engine (prolific, available as supercharged too, which is what I was intending to do).

The bodywork has been worked on by a custom body shop in Miami to closely resemble the modified Europa seen here:

I bought it from the body shop, and they acquired it on a lien - so original owner, if you see this ad, call or text and I (or the next owner) will buy the original TC engine from you). Title is clear.

All the glass is there, inventory on request, probably a year of weekends to devote to it, and you’ll have one for yourself.

Project is on a car hoist, so you can check out the unique cruciform chassis too (same chassis as the earlier Lotus Elan in fact).

Please, only come check it out if you have the cash - can’t do any trades, layaways, or just shooting the breeze.
