    • I purchased 460002 a couple of weeks ago from Daan Van Drunen. It's currently being disassembled to be completely restored, I hope to be finished within the next couple of years. You can find a lot of photographs and the story of how I got the car and my progress so far. I'll be updating the blog (See Website Link below) throughout the restoration.

      • I picked up the body shell of my S1 yesterday.
      • About 2000 hours of work to go and it will be finished!

      • I visited the soda blaster man yesterday and he is making slow but steady progress with my S1. He still has to do a bit more sandblasting of the exposed chassis in the footwells and front area, but the rest of the shell is done. I am very happy with the outcome so far because there is not a lot of damage.
      • My S2 looked 10 times worse!
      • The nose and LH front guard have been replaced and that is why the car has S2 indicators. The repairer seems to have made his own body filler with black colouring. The shapes is good and the repair is sound, so I just need to spend some time making it look pretty!
      • The rear chassis cross member is wrong, but after blasting the overall condition of the chassis looks excellent.

      • Last Monday I had a hoist installed in my workshop, so I put it to good use on Saturday. With the help of a couple of friends we completely stripped 460047. That’s me in the white shirt – photo 03
      • No major disasters yet thank goodness.
      • I’m sending the car to a blaster tomorrow. I’m going to try soda blasting to remove the paint and clean up the interior. All of the black areas in the interior have been covered with vinyl at some stage, which I stripped off , but it is now left with a layer of old glue. Most of the underside , engine bay and inside the nose has been covered in a black underbody material which is quite brittle. I’m hoping it will blast off fairly easily.
      • Notable modifications which need to be addressed
        • Rear cross member has been replaced
        • Big hole in chassis where clutch cable was fitted
        • S2 type front indicators fitted
        • World’s worst paint job!
        • The original colour is orange , so I am going to paint it Lotus Colorado orange. It is a slightly stronger colour than the original – you can see a bit dabbed on the bumper and headlight area in photo 12.

Ernesto is working on his car !! I sent you 4 pictures with this mail.

    • Engine and trans are out of car; it has suffered a major shunt when Mark slid off the road and hit a fence post in the front and then a tree on the side. It hasn't been worked on since then, and it sits patiently for me to retire and start its restoration into a vintage racer. I have aquired a side panel from another S1 to repair the fender and door on the passenger side. I plan to rebuild the front by patching the pieces back together. I have a frame from 460373 (Dave Alford's car which had a frame upgrade) to repair and install since the original frame is in very poor condition. I also have a R16 motor and trans to utilize for the racing drive train. Still collecting parts and pieces as well as tools to complete the restoration. Jerry Rude, Prather CA (soon to be of Roseburg OR where we will be retiring to). Current color White, original unknown.

      • Maybe it was the stupidest mistake in my life, but I just bought a Lotus Europa S1. Yep the ugly 460164 with the big fenders and the sculpture at the back. But in one week time it already lost both and is now being sanded down for painting. Engine: Renault crosflow 1567. Underneath the ugly modifications the car has been restored to a rather high standard, but obviously was abused by one of the last owners. Bought the car in the beginning of October.
    • 7/9/09 update from lotuseuropa list
      • Just a small word of thanks to all of you who recommended to remove the frame from my S1 to repair. It appeared to be a lot crispier than could be seen at first sight. See my pictures for some details.

    • The history of the car is documented by the file, including the French title : it has been sold new in France by Royal-Elysées, then official importer of Lotus, and first registration was on March 11th 1967 . From 16th June 1969, it has been owned by a second owner until 1971 (still in France, Nice). Finally it was purchased by the last owner (also in South France) who kept it from 1971 (!) to February 2014.

      • I don´t think that 46/0202 will get any better under my ownership. It can be restored to better-than-new conditions as any early Lotus. Feel free to make use of the bunch of fotoes that I add. Car is astonishingly civilized, not noisier than an S2, but has a rattle in the gearchange mechanism that one can not get rid of. I am sure that it comes from the circular insert at the gearbox that had later been replaced by a uniball joint. I tried the S2 uniball gear lever, but this one proved to be worse than the rubber/ball mechanism of the eariler car. Gearchange itself is ok, my 4 speed Special was not substantially better.

    • From Rick Jacobson - Troy, Maine
      • This is not current info but a record of #460206 in the early 70's when I owned it. Model 46 registered as a 1967 model year. Registered as yellow but more of a gold color. I converted the rear suspension to adjustable rod ends on both ends of the rear lower radius rods. The engine/trans was stock Renault as far as I know. I fitted it with the then, brand new, Minilite wheels. Traded my Formula Ford for it from an unknown fellow in Viginia Beach, Va.1972 who said he imported it. Sold to L.S. Ziff, Greensburg, Pa. late 1973 or early 1974. Last contact with him in Nov. 1975 when he said it was undergoing a full restoration. I know this isn't much but someone else might pick up the thread from there. I hope it helps.

    • Was donated to the Los Altos High School Auto Tech program by Charlie Gillis of Los Altos Hills Ca. The engine serial # is 0277 and is in all original condition. Charlie installed air conditioning on it many years ago, and then took it out, so we'll restore it back to standard condition. Our plans for it is to race it in the annual Duel at DeAnza autocross at DeAnza College in May. We'll also take it to various car shows in the area to promote our school program.

    • I recently purchased a Lotus Europa S-1, chassis number 460255. I do not know the transmission number. I believe the engine number is 240, I believe it is a renault engine and it is equipped with a single side draft Weber carburator. The VIN plate is very hard to read. The car is now red and white. The car is in very rough condition. My name is George Hayman. The car is currently located in Milton, Florida, USA. My email adress is grhaym@ascendmateriaals.com. At this point I intend to spend the next two years restoring the car to driveable condition. I rescued the car from the remains of a barn where it has sat for approximately 20 years. I intend to update the pictures as I make progress with the restoration.

    • Color will be returned to original. Condition is fair to good. I have restored 7 Lotus from the 60,s and this will not be the worst by far! Car was autocrossed and has had the wheel hubs, wheels suspension modified but most, possibly all original parts were included with car including the original wheels, hub caps and the rare trim rings (all packed in paper dated 1979). Engine is seized as is spare engine and trans #0435 (If car for this engine still exists I would, in the interest of preservation, like to reunite them) Dash has been changed to wood (will be corrected). Car has side draft Weber and custom (and very racey looking ) header. (Will need correct induction and air filter, missing from parts "pile") Glad that this excellent forum is here and looking forward to the project! Always happy to talk to other enthusiasts.

    • My brother and I bought 460292 from Anders Forsberg in May 2011 and then it had a saab 900 turbo engine and transaxle in it. We also got 'the original' engine and gearbox on the side which turns out not to be the original but a Renault 843 motor and NG3 gearbox built by Arne Berg, and used way back when this car was raced. When we took out the saab engine to fix a problem with the rear suspension we saw that in order to accomodate the saab-drivetrain they had to violate the frame too much to our liking so we decided to weld up the frame and go with the Renault instead.

The initial colour was carnival red. After forty years of use, the car is in total restoration. The colour is now Yellow. (When the car was red, everybody said : look at this old Ferrari !

    • Brought the car home Christmas of 1984. Last painted it in 1992 so it shows a bit of wear but still pretty good considering it's been in cold storage for many years. SPAX adjustables on all 4 corners, 4 new tires that have rolled 200 feet in 15 years. Gold empis with homemade center caps and Lotus logos (cast in fiberglass of course). I keep it covered in the garage and turn the motor over by hand occasionally until I have time to concentrate on this car again. According to a 1986 letter I have from Lotus, the car was built in November 1967 and shipped to a dealer called Sports Cars Unlimited in Ontario on December 14th 1967. I was told by the previous owner he believed it was displayed at Expo 67 however since Expo 67 ended on October 29th, if there was a Lotus on display, it wasn't this one.

    • I found this Europa on Craig's List, via BringATrailer.com a couple of weeks ago - and have just completed the transaction today ($100).
    • The ad (org craig'slist ad has been removed) listed the car as an S2 and the owner didn't have any other information, photos, paperwork, or chassis number.
    • The photos looked like an early S2 and I was willing to believe that is what it was (low headlights, small turn signals, no warts, single wiper, no door handles) even though the odds seemed against it. I didn't really want to think about it since I didn't figure that I'd be able to actually complete the purchase and pick it up before tomorrow (owner is moving house and it had to be out ASAP).
    • Well, I'd actually given up, but my Elan-driving friend, Peter called me last night. He knew that I was pretty bummed about not being able to get the car b/c of work (etc) and he was afraid that it was going to end up in the junkyard- so he hopped in his car last night and drove to NH. Stayed with a friend, borrowed a truck/trailer, and called me from the seller's house after it was loaded up to tell me that he has a present for me. Once he got on the road he called back to tell me the juicy details... that its a 46 (46/0327)!

    • As the car is so poor and unoriginal, I'm not guilty in planning to do my own homage to the great 47.
    • Cabin and exterior are to be as type 47, with a GM sourced 1.6 twim cam running throttle bodies, and Renault 5speed box.
    • Will be some years before complete, and after many visits to Mr.Winter at Banks Sevice Station, but will keep all posted.

    • I purchased the car from a shop in Waltham Massachusetts in 1969. I’ve forgotten what I paid for it but it was not much even for those times. After driving it for a couple of years I had the bright idea of dropping in a more powerful 2 liter Ford engine from an American Pinto. The planned changes included some body modifications which can be seen in the photos. However, soon after I started on the project two things changed my focus. First, Lotus came out with the Twin Cam making the engine upgrade superfluous. Second, I got married in 1972 making my time available to work on the car non-existent. The car rested in various storage conditions for the past 40+ years. Now that I am retiring, I have dragged it out from under the tarps leaves and weeds and recently relocated it to a storage area near our new home in South Carolina. Although the chassis and much of the running gear are past saving, I do have most of the engine and transmission parts. I don’t plan to restore the car, but with a new chassis/engine combination I would perhaps like to make it into a track toy.

    • I have owned Europa #460352 since the fall of 2002. I purchased it from Bill Truesdale of Bensenville,Il. Bill traded his Elva Porsche Flat fan for the Europa in 1969. Bill raced it in SCCA D production and came in fourth at the SCCA National Championship in 1972.
    • He then took it back to his machine shop and began extensive modifications. He converted the body to an S2 configuration. He changed the rear axle to a Corvair with custom fabricated half shafts. He had spool built to eliminate the differential assembly. The half shafts bolted to the spool eliminating the split pin Renualt system.
    • He also replaced the front crossmember with a much more substantial unit. He also fabricated new control arms utilizing rod end bearings instead of bushings.
    • When I purchased the car the body was attached to the chassis. Not much else. My son I spent 1 1/2 years finishing the car.
    • I went through the VSCDA driver's school in the spring of 2004. I have raced the Lotus with varying success in Vintage races.
    • The Lotus is garaged for the year on the only maintenance is new brake fluid.
    • I believe that the car was originally white. I have a few pictures from the SCCA Runoffs. The engine # is 0433. There is no trans number on the Lotus plate. I have no idea where the original engine might be.
    • The first picture is when I bought the car. The second is a the 2004 driver's school at Gingermen in Michigan.

    • The deed is done. Brought the S1A back to California over the week end. Some pictures are posted under 0433 67 S1. A few observations:
      • The paint looks better in the photos than in person. The paint job is a 10 foot Earl Scheib special. Looks OK, but has some blisters, peeling and spider cracks if you look close.
      • Roll bar looks odd but is well braced. I may keep it as is.
      • Fuel filler is on the right sail area due to the roll bar using the original hole for the fill cap.
      • PO engineered lower link. Seems robust enough but will go back to stock.
      • No seat belts.
      • Shifter is very stiff and has 3 " if vertical movement.
      • Interior is in very good shape, not too crazy about the mouse grey seats.
      • The turbine style wheels are starting to grow on me. I may keep them.
      • Doing some arithmetic, the car is 42 years old !!!
      • The car does start easily and runs fairly well (at least in first gear).
      • This will be a rolling restoration.

    • Update 3/13/07:
      • I was able to bring 0460497 back to life this weekend. I made several trips around the neighberhood and most everthing works well. The clutch was stuck and after eliminating the cable as the problem I disassembled. This was disappointing since I had just reassembled the front and rear end with new bearings, bushings, ujoints, bolts and paint. It turned out the problem was much easier to solve than I had thought. I discovered that my throwout bearing was fine, but the pressure plate and disk had rusted to the flywheel. After separating, sanding and lubricating everything works well. The best part was NO additional $$$$$$.
      • 460497 is really running great. The Stebro exhaust and two stage Weber downdraft sound fantastic. Acceleration is much better then I thought. The minor bad news is that my alternator has 0 output and radiator fan is rusted solid.
    • Update 3/27/07:
      • I continue to make good progress on my rolling resto of 460497. I now have all electrical lights, gages and fans working. Speedometer is still inop. I've also rewrapped the wiring harness and replaced a few wires that had rubbed raw on the frame tunnel and shorted out. Luckly these were red and a blue wires without stripes. Looks very clean and organized. When I started I had individual, albeit original wires, going everywhere.
      • Most of my inop electrical devices were because of corroded electrical connectors and bad ground connections. I think this is because alot of the connectors were disconnected for some time. For the round connectors I used a round wire brush used to clean gun or pistol barrels. Wire brush the male end and circular wire brush the female; plugged everything together and now I have all the lights including the blinkers. My S1 doesn't have backup lights but the wiring is there. The wiring diagram was exactly the same as my car wiring, which made things very easy to sort out.
      • It appears that my alternator is inop. I replaced it with a Renault R17ts alternated which bolted right up after I exchanged the pulleys. Only 3 volt output so I cheched the VR. The VR had some internal corrostion and the contacts (points) were corroded shut so I cleaned it up a bit. I still don't think I'm charging but the output voltage is now 12+ volts. I'll have to do some more checking.
      • I've also replaced my cooling fan but that is another story.

      • It is originally red, shows original motor 661 on the tag, but now has an 821 motor and although the body is undamaged, it is pretty worn out. The driver's door falls off when opened, the interior is trashed, handbrake is missing and while all the Perspex windows are there, are all opaque at best. It has had numerous non-original "keep it running" fixes (Toyota alternator, Ford solenoid, NipponDenso regulator, creative wiring.)

    • Car has not been driven for about 5 years but should be easy to get back on the road, which I would like to do soon.
    • I have modified the car for autocrossing. Currently the engine is a Toyota 4AGE 1600cc 4 valve twin cam with dual 40 DCOE 's mated to a Hewland MK 9 4 speed trans.
    • Suspension has been modified including springs, lowering, sway bars and TC Europa drive shafts and axles.
    • Brake mods include dual masters and disc rear brakes.
    • I also owned 46/028? back in the 70's. I found this same car in a junk yard from accident damage in the mid 80's. I assume it was totaled. I'm still looking for the complete chassis #.

    • 11/09/11
      • Sold on ebay for $7,000
      • Serial number: 46/0639
      • Odometer reads: 77,XXX km [approx. 46,000+ miles]
      • Car was a driver 5 years ago, parked in dry storage and recently brought back to life. This is the desirable early, low-headlight Europa which has running lights under the front bumper. From a Europa-based web site only 102 were made and this is one of the last S1 Europas made.
      • Car runs and drives though it is in need of a front frame rebuild. It is powered by a Renault 807-03 1565cc alloy hemi head crossflow engine with a downdraft Weber 32/36 DG40V, which runs good. Transaxle snicks cleanly through all gears.
      • The rear frame appears to be in good useable condition. The front and rear suspension had maintenance before being parked which included new adjustable Spax shocks front and rear, bushings and bearings checked or replace, and new drive shaft u-joints. Pirelli P300 175/70/R13 tires with low mileage.
      • 10 feet/10 mph paint job great for a worry-free daily driver. Fabricated hardwood dash panels. Original steel wheels/trim rings/hubcaps. Car has later doors with power windows. Original doors included. A factory Lotus Europa Workshop Manual [August 1972 printing] comes with the car.

      • Complete frame off restoration completed last fall. Everything is new or reconditioned. I do not have the engine compartment insert that goes above the transaxle, however this is not that hard to find. I dare say this is among the best you will find in an early Europa. I have a large stack of receipts to go with the car, along with a box of spares, including a period dealer installed radio, which I have not reinstalled. The bumpers are off the Lotus as can be seen in the pictures. These can be easily put back on there are no dents in them but I would re-chrome them to make them blend with the rest of the car. This was a quality restoration right down to using the correct color on the frame when the body was off.

    • Information from Tony Cockshutt:
      • 20 valve blacktop 4AGE engine. Very early S2 with single wiper, door handle cutouts and no warts. It has the marvelous Pels 4AGE conversion with 5 spd 395 transaxle. Same weight distribution as the original but 170 HP. The ECU is fully connected with O2 sensor so the variable valve timing works as designed and incredible fuel mileage. New shocks, adjustable front suspension, adjustable camber bars, fuel cell, electronic speedo, new carpet, rear disk brakes, GT6 front brakes, stainless door hinges. Great stereo with custom 10" sub behind the passenger seat. Mechanically excellent, solid chassis, fair interior, poor paint, good body. Currently licenced and driven regularly (more than 3000 miles this year).
      • Sold to Japan by Tony Cockshutt, Red Deer, Alberta, Canada on 5/14/07

      • Some news from me. I'm ready now with my Lotus. I only need a little time for programming of the fuel injection, but the rest of the car is perfect.
      • Photos
    • 5/1/10
      • Date of first registration 1969 in Switzerland
      • I have owned the Europe since 1977 ( yes, it's a Europe )
      • In the first two years I started the restoration. The car was completly in parts, but then I stopped with the restoration. I built a Hot Rod. Then, my Lotus was stored for a long time. In the last year, I started my restoration once more. I think that the car will be finished in two years. The chassis is new from Banks, also the shell. The engine is a Gordini and will receive a Megasquirt Injection. Gearbox is 5 speed from a Renault Fuego Turbo. Rear suspension is modified with disc brakes. Discs are original Europa front, Calipers with handbrake from Audi. Driveshafts and axles come from a VW Beetle (aircooled type). The body was not perfect enough for me. The hood incl. rear screen was on the driver side 10mm too deep. Then I had cut the hood from my old shell incl. windscreen frame and I laminated the part together with the new body.

    • From: Rob Buck
      • On 14/5/1973 I purchased a yellow Europa Chassis No. 54/0760 Eng. No. 0835 from a Ronald Donaldson.
      • The car was not going and had suffered an engine fire with most of the rear bonnet burned and also some damage to the rear of the roof and rear window area. I restored it in the next few months and registered the vehicle with the registration No. LOT-000 at Morwell, Victoria on 8/8/1973.
      • The car was used as my main transport around town and for country trips etc. I was also involved in competition car rallying in 4 cylinder Fords at that time. Although I was impressed by the balance and handling of the standard Europa it was really not fast enough to get the adrenaline going so I spent some time thinking about how to get the car to accelerate faster and also improve its top speed. I do recall that the Victoria police were using the Ford Falcon GT 351 V8 vehicles which could do about 125 M.P.H. and I wanted to be able to beat that just in case I had a problem with them. Fortunately the need never eventuated (unlike some others).
      • I decided in the end to re-power the vehicle with a 13B Mazda Rotary engine (No. A43839 ) which I obtained from a damaged RX4 vehicle. To my knowledge this was the first time this conversion had ever been attempted and I had to design and build everything to do the job from scratch. The vehicle then went back on the road as my normal road car and I continued to use it for many years. I spent some time improving the sound insulation and ultimately it became a very potent but comfortable road car capable of getting from A to B as quickly as anything else could in those days on public roads. I remember having plenty of throttle left at 135 MPH (218 k.p.h.) but the problem was that the front end of the vehicle became very light at that speed and the aerodynamic instability really did get the adrenaline pumping. I eventually sold the car still registered as LOT-000 to a young baker (or was it a butcher) David John Wilson of 78 Magpie St in Ballarat on 17/2/1982. The car was still going well at that stage except the rotary engine was well worn and very smoky but it still performed impressively despite the smoke trail behind.
      • Barry Rowe purchased the car from David Wilson after David damaged the car in an accident and the drivers door and rear corner were damaged. Barry commenced a complete restoration (back to standard specs) but sold the car as a rolling chassis with no engine or gearbox. The body was fully repainted in "Monza Red" or a similar colour and sold to a senior army officer in Canberra who intended to restore the vehicle to standard specs. Barry also sold his blue Europa (which he had raced with a 17TS 5 speed box and an ex-Renault Rally Team Gordini engine) to help finance his entry in a London to Sydney rally in the early 1990's. Barry did not know who now has the LOT-000 rego no. but it appears the plates were re-issued to somone else after the registation on 54/0760 expired.
      • Recently a friend of mine noticed at an Historic Racing Car meeting at Phillip Island, that a Lotus Elan was now sporting the LOT-000 number plate so maybe this person would know where 54/0760 now is.

    • Very fine restored S2 from 1968. Bought from Germany in 2007. Nearly original and in top condition. The cars original color was "Lotus Yellow" but now it's in a bit strange metallic color, which caused fundamental problems at the registration in the Tyrol (Austria) because of its non-authenticity (see enclosed pictures).

    • Sold to a Mr. Spencer in 1968 (I think) run for a couple of years and stored for about 30 years. I purchased it pretty much complete but obviously seized solid everywhere. Now about 99% disassembled. Probably start rebuilding at the end of the summer. It has had an engine change to an 807 crossflow at some point. It has also had an accident - front right hand corner shows signs of damage and (amateurish) repair.

    • A couple more photos with some of its garage mates.
    • After more than two years in preparation for road use 54/0844 is on the road again. The Renault type 847 1647cc cross flow has been rebuilt professionally, at very considerable expense, and it is very quick; well beyond my expectations. I've been in contact with the Lotus historian at the factory who confirms the car is indeed a Euro spec car, sold new in Koln, Germany in late 1968 and subsequently imported privately to the states.
    • 10/8/11
      • Today I took delivery of a 1969 Lotus Europa S2 Type 54, chassis 54/0844 today, Saturday, October 1, 2011. The car was purchased privately from a Chicago Lotus Club member, Terry Rosser, who resides in Dyer, Indiana. While under Terry's 26 year ownership, the car has undergone a body off frame restoration and upgraded to a Renault Fuego hemi engine, twin Weber 40DCOE's and a five speed gearbox.
      • The car is black in color and will join my Caterham Super Seven and TVR Tuscan V8. Photo of Europa attached. This is my second Europa, the first being a TCS, chassis number 3700R, which was sold locally some time ago.

    • I am intending to get my car from storage soon. It has been in a garage since September 1991!
    • The car is in Shropshire UK and is registered KCL150G.Chassis number is 54/0848. It was sold on 10 December 1968 to a Mr Dangerfield. The car was not available to the UK market until July 1969 so how Mr Dangerfield got his is a mystery! It is currently black but was originally white.
    • I bought it in March 1988. I fell in love with the Europa when one was driven by one of the characters in the UK TV series "The Avengers" in the late 1960's. At that time the car was about £1700 , I was making £3 a week as an apprentice engineer. It took me twenty years to finally buy one!.
    • Since I have had it the chassis has been completely renewed and the interior has been retrimmed. Otherwise the car is totally original except it now has a Weber carburettor. I'm sorry but I don't know the engine and gearbox numbers.

      • Actively seeking an S2 and came across this piece in the Toronto area. Car was sitting for 18 years when the current owner purchased it and started to dissasemble. 54/0916 now has gullwing doors and is sans windshield, steering column, engine & transmission. It is available for sale, but am looking more for a driver not a basketcase.

    • Disassembled, but appears to be complete. The original engine is there, plus three 807 blocks with crossflow heads (bear with me here, I've never owned a Renault engine, and I really have no idea what these numbers mean, but I WILL figure this stuff out). It also came with a set of Cosmic mags, plus the original wheels and hubcaps.
    • The body is in pretty good shape, better than my S1 was. A few cracks and holes to repair, but nothing major. A weekend's work, rather than three months of daily crack repairs. Obviously, it will also need paint. It looks like the car was originally painted green, but has been changed to a sort of brown.
    • The chassis, and many suspension and brake parts are rusty, as usual, but I've dealt with that disease before.

    • I have had a Europa since 1973. It is registered as a 69 and was built August of 68. I am the third owner and knew the second owner who had it from 71 until 73. It was absolutely original when I got it and it has not changed much since then. I did a complete rebuild in 1980 but it has lived indoors unused but dry since 86. I have 3 engines for it. The original and another non-cross flow. The third is a 16TS cross flow which is currently installed. Mileage is about 46k miles. It has lived most of it's life in London Canada where I bought it and it is currently stored. It also enjoyed living in Montreal for about a decade.
    • Back when I club raced (Datsun 510) I used to take the Europa out for laps around the Mosport circuit. It also enjoyed that immensely.
    • It seems to be a little bit of a hybrid, having had plex quarter side windows, round "button" door handles on outside, single wiper, no running/turn indicators on the front (just headlights, the turn indicators are small rectangular and located on sides of fenders), the black logo on front. Tailights are S2. I'll try to send photos some day. Currently I am in California and have not even seen the car for six years :(

    • My name is Tyler Brady, from Bayfield Ontario Canada. My father Bruce Brady owned two Lotus Europa S2’s, in succession starting with a green 1969, single wiper, S1 style door handles, no signal turn indicators inside the headlamps, Weber down draught carburetor and a cross-flow (Gordini?) head modification straight from the dealer who spec’d it up, Bruce was the second owner. The green one was traded on a fawn coloured one, both were lost to time after that. I now own a vehicle of the same green description (his who knows?) last summer I purchased it from behind a shop next to the woods along with many extra parts includ ing blocks, heads, transmissions, frame, running gear. I also have some pictures. I am a licensed mechanic and will begin a restoration in the spring.
    • Model 1969 S2 (but with many S1 attributes) Left hand drive. Unit number +54/0990 Engine number 0979 Transmission number 00678 Colour Green now, believed original looks every day its age at present complete with spider cracks in normal places.

    • There is green original overspray behind the door panels with factory original black paint assembly markings. The odometer shows 46 492 also believed to be original mileage. The hood emblem is black. The original wheels and trim rings have stayed with the car and can be fixed to original standard with paint and re chrome. Dash is intact but may need total restoration. I have boxes of parts with many correct spares, and needless junk as well. Car is a 6/10 but as a project vehicle 8/10 due to the parts available to me.

    • This is my parts car but I think the body is the best one of the three. Norm and I bought this for $300 a couple years ago and sold about $900 of unwanted parts and kept the rest. I became sole owner when Norm liquidated his lotus interests. This car is red and almost completely stripped of parts. I have a title that is dated May 9, 1975 that shows the seller as Paul K. Gibrae (?? fuzzy), conveyed on that date to Paul D Kessler of Groton, Mass. On August 18, 1985, it was sold to a trust company (official owner) to obtain a loan for Angelyn Deitrick and her husband (name unknown). Husband died and she continued to drive the car until sometime in the early 90's. Then it sat until Norm and I bought it a couple years back. I have no plans for this car.

    • We bought the car after someone had half re assembled the car about a year ago. From our under standing the car has been off the road for at least 15 yrs. Chassis has now been stripped and sandblasted. Body has been sanded down to base. Original colour may have been blue. Assembly will start as soon as the chassis has been repaired. Engine is in pieces but we have found new pistons and liners at a local spares shop ( probably been there for 30 yrs) and are now sourcing bearing shells.

    • From: Rob Buck
      • About 1976 after Barry (Ellis - Current owner of 701024177PR) had moved to Newry, I came across another Lotus Europa 54/1151 (red this time) and as it was cheap due to its run-down almost undriveable condition. I thought Barry might be interested in it as he had apparently been impressed by my yellow Europa (540760). He said yes and I bought it for him sight unseen. This vehicle had already had an engine conversion with a 1600 cross-flow Ford (Kent) engine with extractors and twin side-draught Webers and Barry soon got it going properly and I recalled did reasonably well in some local hill-climb events etc. with it. But after driving my rotary Europa it still wasn't powerful enough so Barry then did his own rotary conversion this time using the R100 Mazda 12A engine. As Barry was more interested in competition use with his vehicle he didn't spend as much effort in making the car as comfortable as mine prefering instead to keep the weight down and hoping for better outright performance. I vaguely remember Barry entering the car in races at the Winton circuit and blowing it up but I can't remember much detail and he ultimately sold the vehicle to a bloke in Melbourne in July / August 1979.
      • Barry and I would be interested if anyone can give us any information on the present whereabouts of both 54/0760 and 54/1151.

    • Restored to as close as possible to original. 3rd this year in concourse at Shannons Eastern Creek Classic 1961-70 period. I was up against a Morris 1100 that I'm sure was built in an operating theatre. I'm 4th owner. 3rd owner was Steve Hewitt of Karang Victoria for over 20 years. He was the one who trashed the left front corner in 1983. Parked the car in a shed and left it there until I bought it as a wreck in 2003. He thinks the 2nd owner worked as ground maintainence for Ansett at Tullamarine airport and cut the rear wheel arches to fit fat tyres for track days. Wheel arches now as per normal. No knowledge of who bought the car originally. Weber & extractors fitted by Australian importer.

    • The original chassis (from the factory) was +54/1160+, when I bought the car the chassis was and still is +54/1719+. (the chassis was changed very early in it's life, still trying to track down its early history. It was from a Europa in the car club).
    • The engine (from the factory) was +1235+. Some time between 1991 and 1992 (on the rego papers) the engine no. was 770528604. When I picked the car up the engine no. had changed to 8070342536.
    • The paint (from the factory) was Blue, some where in it's early life (probably when it's chassis was changed) it was re-painted Yellow. When I bought it, theyellow was rubbed off and it was grey primer. It has now been painted Laser blue (a Lotus Elise 2002 colour).

    • I bought the car from a gentlemen who had purchased it from his neighbor in Toronto (1971) who had only owned the car for one year. The fellow I purchased it from then used it in local completions in Eastern Canada then parked it 1984 where it sat. The car has come with 2 Renault engines (one the original) and several box's containing numerous suspension parts (yet to be cataloged) and several box's of printed material.

    • The transmission is the original 336 4 speed.
    • The car has been re-engine with a R16TS with weber carbs and extractors.
    • The car was originally yellow. In the mid-late 1970s the car was changed to Gold Leaf colour scheme, but has now been repainted white.
    • It is understood that the car was originally sold with the Australian Geoghegan performance kit.
    • The car was purchased in pieces without legal road wheels and is now fitted with Globe Bathurst alloy wheels.
    • In the 1970s the car must have sustained an minor impact. The right front corner of the car wasreplaced and the car underwent a major rebuild including a repaint to Gold Leaf colour scheme. At this time it was New South Wales registered and was still in standard Geoghegan kit specification other than the colour. The car changed hands in the mid-late 1970s and it moved to Queensland. After a couple years of ownership the car was totally dismantled and extensively modified in the 1980s and has been off the road since. I purchased the car as boxes of parts and a slow extensive rebuild has been continuing since over many years. The car is now nearing completion with most of the modifications changed back to a more standard specification. The condition of the car is good, but no doubt some de-bugging will be required after such an extensive rebuild.

The colour of the car is back to the original with a twist It is Bahama yellow with white on the bottom half like a sprint paint scheme, The interior has been all redone in leather, the dash refinished in a burled walnut. The engine is a Renault Gordini cross-flow with fuel injection and a custom tuned exhaust. The transmission is an 5-speed NG3 Renault from a Fuego.

    • Paint: The body just got finished and is currently repaired and repainted bright yellow.
    • I bought the car from a gentleman in Luxemburg, WI. The car was somewhat together but mostly it was taken apart. The engine block and trans were still in the car, but the rest of the parts were in boxes. See pictures. I picked up the car with a friend, brought it to my home where my son and I proceeded to dismantle virtually all the components that make up this auto.
    • I became a member of the Fox Valley British Car Club in Oshkosh, WI where the car currently occupies space. I have been working on a complete rebuild, not a restoration. I plan on making this a dependable, fun driver for my son and I. I am currently finishing up the tear down, ordering parts, painting and will be rebuilding soon. As I stated, the body has been repaired and painted and is currently waiting for the frame to be finished.
    • A friend said he would rebuild the motor but that is another story in itself. And no I don’t have a motor yet to install. I need to work on that.

    • New owner of James Grant’s 541291 Lotus Europa, as it forms a better starting point for father/son(s) vehicle restoration. We will be utilizing Mr. Grant’s custom space-frame chassis, adapting front and rear suspension components from 1998 Passat to keep ABS brakes and modern hubs, installing Audi/VW 1.8T engine and Tiptronic transmission, A/C, and all engine sub-systems for reliability. Chassis being marked up now for engine/trans installation/rear suspension mounts before being sent to fabricating shop. Body will be forwarded to repair shop for crack repair and base paint. When they come back, the Passat will be sacrificed to live again under the Lotus fiberglass! Kids are to photo and document everything, and will learn which end of a wrench is which, together with the intricacies of modern vehicle electronics, motive power and interior work.

    • From Craigslist 11/17/09
      • This is a modified Europa that has a very different look than others on the street, this car has great potential and could be completed by anyone with some degree of mechanical ability. The car essentially needs a motor transplanted into it and a transmission with brackets/shifting linkage to make it work. The car was built up in the late 70's - early 80's by John Berger of Vancouver, WA, a local driving instructor and racer with Team Continental. The car utilized a fuel injected Volkswagen 1.8l engine mounted to an Audi 4000 5 speed. Other modification this car has are rear disc brakes, a vw radiator, additional RH custom fuel tank (21gal total), and a 2nd brake pedal for left foot braking. I talked to John recently, and he said he would be happy to share more pictures and give some advice on further improving some of the racing-oriented modifications. As the car sits, the old 1.8l engine and Audi transmission have been removed and will be included with the car, this engine is seized up but the tranny seems ok. With a VW 1.8t engine installed, the 1,400lb car would have 160hp+ and will MOVE! The body is in great condition, the only mentionable damage is where the driver's door handle is attached, see picture. This would be an easy fix. The paint is oxidized and has some bubbles that indicate that there is some moisture underneath the paint in places, it really should be repainted to restore this beauty to her original glamour, the glass is good. The second picture in the group is of this same car some years ago, like I said a new paint job is in order.

As the car sits, the old 1.8l engine and Audi transmission have been removed and will be included with the car, this engine is seized up but the tranny seems ok. The engine that I am including with the car is a 2002 VW 1.8l turbo, it has low miles and needs a turbo rebuild (75$). I have no transmission to mount to the 1.8t but I have seen them for around 600$. You will also need a wiring harness, computer, and alternator ($250). With this engine installed, the 1,400lb car will have a 160hp+ and this thing will MOVE! The paint surface is oxidized, and should be repainted to restore this beauty to her original glamor, the glass is good. Keep in mind this car has been sitting covered for 20 years and will gladly take as much loving as you will give, it is in very good condition for its age.

    • I have acquired the 1970 S2 Lotus Europa, serial number 54/1552 from Carl Sarro. Carl and I have been members of the Lotus Corps Sports Car Club since the early seventies. He and I were both friends of Bob Wells, the original owner of this soon to be wonderful Europa. I live in Marietta, Georgia, but I'm still a member of Lotus Corps and also own 5 Elans. I have owned a few Europa's in the past. In 1973 I purchased my first Lotus, a used 72 Twin Cam, then acquired a 74 Special 5 speed which I sold in 1977. The engine in this S2 was not seized after sitting for many, many years but was full of acorns, and a couple of mouse nests. Additionally, upon dis-assembly, the water pump was seized, and many of the valve springs were collapsed. A complete engine rebuild is currently under way at PHP Race Engines in Wauconda, Illinois. The goal at this stage is to make it mechanically sound and an excellent driver. As it's original paint with some minor patina, I will try to keep it like that for now. The original wheels were missing so for the time being I have added a set of VTO wheels with Yokohama 185/60 tires.

      • European specification Europa, previously owned by Lotus Corps member Bob Wells. Bob passed away in March of 1994. The car has not run in many years, and is in an advanced state of deterioration. We are proceeding with a restoration of the car as a family project. Our objective is to return the car to its former glory in Bob’s memory. The photographs show the car while at the 1979 SCCA Solo II Runoffs in Hutchinson Kansas, and our acquiring it in May, 2011.

      • I am selling this car for a friend although I have watched him rebuild this over the last couple and can attest to the the workman ship of this beautiful example of a rare car, especially in this kind of condition. The Europa has the Gordini Head with a perfromance racing cam and side Draft Webber. The tranny is a 5 speed, 395 NGI racing series box. The suspension is in good working order with new bushings and rear adjustable control arms and a removable stainless steel cross bar. Koni shocks on all 4 wheels. Brakes are rebuilt and work perfectly. There is custom made stainless steel exhaust system.

    • In the process of restoration for road use. Originally the car was mustard yellow, but was in a terrible blue/white mess when I purchased it. The Engine has been rebuilt by Arnie Loyning. The body was repaired by Randall Fehr and the prep and paint is being done in the same shop by Stephen Clapsaddle of Liquid Reflections. The chassis has been cleaned, trued, and painted and components being reinstalled. Hoping to be compete by winter (2006).

  • Condition:
    • Current color: Red with Oatmeal interior
    • Originally purchased in San Francisco, California in late 1969. I purchased this Lotus in May 1977 in Monterey, California from the original owner. Over the next 3 years I drove it daily. The original 1565 CC engine suffered a failure from a piston skirt, which was quite common in that design. I had a Renault-Gordini 1565cc 807-20 engine imported from France. The displacement remained the same, But it had a HEMI Head with Twin Weber 45DCOE Carburetors and Tuned Exhaust Headers resulting in a great increase in horsepower and torque. I drove the Lotus cross country in 1982 to Massachusetts. I then purchased a new car for daily driving. The Lotus was Yellow at birth and repainted Red in 1984. All of the front & Rear suspension was rebuilt including Koni adjustable shocks and an Adjustable Rear Link system. I drove the Europa less and less as time went by due to having very little spare time from my job. This Lotus Europa has spent all of it’s time since parked in a garage. It was never operated in snow or rain. Included with the Lotus are many spare parts. A 4 speed transaxle and bell housing, a set on rear suspension trailing arms, new set of Brembo ventilated front disc rotors, a set of Twin Cam Fuel Tanks, 2 doors, 2 additional wheels and other smaller parts. A new windshield was installed at the time I stopped using it, as was the dash-board. The original interior was also replaced with Twin Cam rug, Oatmeal seats & console. An Oil Cooler was installed along with a second engine cooler radiator in the front nose of car. Vehicle is stored in Methuen, Massachusetts directly off of Interstate Highway 495 @ Exit 46. Total mileage on the vehicle is less than 50,000. Total miles on New Engine is about 5,000. The Lotus had not been on the road for over 20 years. It is complete but needs the brakes and other systems tended to first.

    • Update 3/27/10
      • It has been a long job, very long, the first schedule was based on a two months and a half time. It ended up to be nine months, no comments, I started to disassemble the car in July 2009 and let say I finished at the end of March 2010.
      • The car was six weeks at the painter, meanwhile I reassembled the two doors.
      • I started to reassemble the car on the 12th of February, I built a new fire wall, and change part of the transfer pipes, it has been difficult to find the good bends to be able to fit them from the front, one full morning spent on that. I also moved the engine a bit backwards, the reverse contact was touching the double link suspension system that I bought from Banks. The right doors took me three hours and a half to adjust on the car even with the new Banks hinges, the left door only half an hour, who knows why. Not been a professional, a lot of things took me double time, also because the first time was the learning process, as for the side door windows seals for example.
      • The reassembling took me fifteen days and a half in two periods, I started the car the 10 of March, to my surprise the engine started after 5 or 6 attempts, now the car is back on the road, I still have to fix few things, but it is good to drive it again.

    • Update 12/10/09
      • Five weeks ago the car left the body shop to get a new paint, it should be back tomorrow December 11th, how exiting. I am still working on the interior, finishing the crash-pad, tried before yesterday to glue the vinyl, very unsuccessful, start again next week. the seats are finished. Will reassemble the car in February, will make also a new insulation on the fire wall and changing the transfer pipes.

    • Update 9/8/09
      • I send you few photos of the work process, it takes more time that what I expected, but I am trying to to make the best I can. In three weeks I should be done with the body work and will start preparing the body for painting.
      • Photos
    • Update 7/18/09
      • I'm actually redoing the complete body shell, with a new front, the old one was badly repaired and look more like a patchwork than a Europa. I already cut the car with the help of two Italian friends, and we glued the new one in placed.

    • Posted 12/26/07 by Jason McDaniel - Houston, Texas, USA
      • Weathered but not rusty
      • I bought the car from Steve F., the ex-president of Lotus West, the Los Angeles area Lotus club. Steve used it for autocross and had done a lot of tweeks to make it perform better and took care of the problems that crop up in Europas. Steve blew the head gasket around 2002, took the head off and left the car parked outside. In late 2007 Steve put the car, along with boxes of spares and performance parts on Craigslist for $1500. The photo looks horrible, the seat pans are rusted and the engine has extensive corrosion. Other than that it's in very good shape. Future plans are for a drivetrain transplant to compete as a SCCA XP class autocrosser.

      • From ebay listing
      • This is a 1969 Lotus Europa S2. It is missing the engine, the transaxle, the front window and most of the interior. The person I got it from was stripping it out to build a racecar. As you can see by the pictures, It also needs a bit of pant and fiberglass work. The holes where the front turn signals were has been fiberglassed over. It does have the full front suspension, a brand new set of four brand new Kumho 165/70 13 tires and some used rear shocks that look to be Spax which might be rebuildable. It also has one original set of keys. The car comes with a clear, signed California title so getting it licensed after the restoration shouldn't be a problem. And believe it or not, I actually have some maintenance records and the actual dealer sticker for the car. It was sold from Bill Young Sports Cars in Montrose, California back in '69 for the total price of $4,635 and the sticker does go with the car.
      • I was going to do a full restoration on this car, but my job situation right now and the fact that I also have two other project cars sitting in the garage means this will have to be a project car for somebody else to restore. It does need a lot of work but I am selling it cheap.

    • Engine number 1619 (its the original 1470cc non cross flow unit with the standard 4 speed gearbox)
    • The car hasn't been on the road in 20 years and is in need of recommissioning. Brakes will have to be done as well as spring shock units, gear linkage, carpets, a few cracks in the chassis to be welded and the engine is suffering from compression issues, so that might end up being replaced depending on how terminal the problem is. This along with just a general tidy up, but the car is largely original and even came with the steel wheels and hub caps which I plan to use, if I can find some suitable tyres.
    • I believe the car was originally red, at some stage it was painted yellow and then painted blue by the previous owner. I think its a Toyota colour.

    • I have a Lotus Else Europa under restoration ( enclosed pictures, The wing mirrors and bumpers are missing on the photo) The car is in fact the Else europa in the Book "Lotus Europa gold portfolio" with the nr. plate UNG 121G and the chassis nr 541745.
    • I wrote to Lotus and got the answer:
        "Dear Jakob Rydh
      • Your Lotus Europa S2 with chassis number 54/1745 was indeed sold to J.A.Else & Sons, the original engine number was LCS 1486. It may be worth checking the engine number against what is in the car now to see if it has been changed. We have no record of what "Else" options the garage fitted, only that the car was painted yellow here at Lotus as part of production.

      • Regards

      • Andy Graham
        Lotus Archives"

    • The car was a full stage 5 spec, the Naca duct is missing on the photo in the book but had been done later. The engine has also been changed. I bought a new R16 crossflow engine made by the "Renault Guru" Arne Berg with twin 45 Dellortos, racing cam and a free flow silencer system etc. etc. (ca. 170bhp). Í would also try to build the original engine so I would like to buy the Else inlet manifold and the Else cast-alloy rocker cover.

The tan covering on the dash and door panels fully cover, but will need some work to look perfect. There is one small crack in the fiberglass above the rear passenger tire about 3 inches long. The odometer and speedometer do not function. The air cleaner is missing from the engine.

    • PO: Chuck Stroo - 10/12/08
      • After three and a half years and a great deal of help from this group my S2 is road worthy registered and insured! It was on the pavement today. I say two because the back half of the body is a 1969 S2 VIN 54-1767, while the rest of the car is a 1970 S2 VIN 7006190531R. I picked it up in pieces from Naples, FL. The Lotus Company archivist tells me that VIN 1767 left the factory June 16, 1969 and was sold by Lotus East, Millerton, NY. VIN 0531R left the factory September 22, 1970, in Royal Blue colors and was sold by Lotus Canada...maybe that's why there were all red tail lights in the parts box! The 1767 VIN plate was attached to the vehicle dash, but the plenum plate, body and doors all were marked 0531. Also the engine and transaxle serial numbers matched the plenum plate. What a great project leading to even a greater first ride with many more to come.

    • My name is Bjorn Persson, Swedish citizen currently living in Mexico.
    • I bought two Lotus Europa last year and after innumerable adventures to bring them to Mexico, the cars finally are here.
    • These are:
      • Lotus Europa type 2DRCP white color. Year 1968, serial 54/1796
      • Lotus Europa type 2DRCP maroon color. Year 1971, serial 0667R
    • I have both car now in a workshop where there are going to be completely renovated. One is going to be tuned up a little while the other is going to be kept as original as possible.
    • Both cars were in a awful condition when I bought them. I have been looking for years for an Europa. Because of my work I have been travelling too much and I didn’t felt that I could take the care those car needed so I waited until last to finally buy one. In six months I couldn’t get any good car in a reasonable distance to Baja California so finally I bought those two.
    • Being an engineer, I have been dealing with numerous workshops over the years and there are some here that are incredible. These guys are going to assist me in the work.
    • I feel that sending a picture of the cars now, is not going to make honor to the cars. However I am documenting the restoration process in detail and I’m happy to share my progress with anybody interested.
