      • This is the earliest known Europa S2 to exist (540651). It is a transition car from the S1 to the S2 model. It has the early style body with the low front end, single wiper, no wart turnsignals and push button doors, but with an S2 removable frame and power windows.
      • Not runnning and needs lots of work but appears to be quite complete. Good windshield, frame looks good and has been repainted at sometime. Renault non-crossflow engine (free but not running) and 4 spd trans. Body has some star cracks and minor damage from storage. Period alloy wheels. Some spares available.
      • Gordini crossflow engine core available as well.

      • 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.

    • 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.

        • Walter Cianciusi
        • 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).

The car is a daily driver and in good condition, improved everyday.

      • 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.

      • Transmission #: 336 4 Speed
    • Condition:
      • Current color: White
      • 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.

      • Ive been meaning to update my info for a while and now I finally got to it. The restoration is complete. 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).

      • Original color: L7 Lotus Yellow/Black Interior
    • 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.
        • Photos
      • 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.
      • Update 9/11/09
        • 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.

      • 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.

      • Engine runs very strong. Transmission shifts very smooth. Brakes are in perfect working order. Exterior color is a bright yellow with solid green pinstripes that go the full length of the car. Interior is a tan/camel color with tan carpet. Tachometer is functioning along with all of the vehicle lights. Power windows and power engine cooling fans are in working order. Brand new 195/45 R15 Ventus K102 78V low profile tires with new 15-inch KONIG polished aluminum wheels. 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.

      • From Peter Brohl
        • I picked up the car at the factory and drove it around the UK for 1 week. I then shipped it home. At the time I was living in Utica, NY. I now live in Easton, PA but I have no idea where the car is.
        • During the summer of 1970 I campaigned the car on the autocross circuit winning SCCA's area 11 championship for solo 2. In 1971 I converted the vehicle to a full blown race car and campaigned it on both SCCA's National and Regional circuit for several years. In 1976 I won the NYSRRC championship in the DP class. The car was sold in 1978 to an exotic car dealer in WhitePlains NY. The guy's name was Nick Soprano. After that I lost track of the car.

      • Bought from Norm Vandal Sept 2005. Norm bought from Albert (Ray) Varney around 1999. Varney bought in 1976 from original owner (unknown). Car was driven by Varney until 1978 (approx) when he started a frame-off restoration. He got about 80% done and stopped. Eventually sold to Norm who had intended to put a Toyota engine and NG3 in with lots of other mods. Norm burned out on the project and sold me the car with a miriad of other parts. He sold the engine and tranny along with a twin link to some guy in Alaska. I will sell the original engine and put another 225-250hp 1796cc Renault hemi in the car with cage and stripped down as much as possible. (eventually)

      • Here we have a S2 Europa which has been owned by the same person for the past 37 years during which time it has always been garaged and used on sunny days. The car has been maintained to the highest of standards in all respects the chassis was replaced by a Spyder Enginnering type fewer than two thousand miles ago at which point all of the brakes were overhauled and a new clutch was fitted it had a new radator fitted and all coolant hoses replaced along with the gear linkage joints being renewed. The car is finished in striking Lotus yellow and is sitting on period style alloy wheels with new tyres and complemented by black seats an brand new oatmeal coloured carpets.

      • I just purchased this car and am starting to sort it out. The intent would be to make it a club racer.
      • Car was purchased out of Tucson Arizona where it has been residing since at least ’79. Car is original and will stay that way for the immediate future.

      • It has Cosmic alloys which I believe are period option ? TBV
      • Original colour : L09 – Royal Blue, but is currently red and has been racing green somewhere in between. It has not been on the road since 1988 from what I can gather from UK DVLC records of when it’s last Road Tax licence expired.
      • Hoping to complete restoration to original colour/spec - estimate about 2 years.
      • Possibly has the original chassis which can be saved.
      • Has an oatmeal interior which I suspect is from a later TC Europa.

      • This unique car is a replica of the original Supercar built by Lotus in collaboration with parts supplier GKN, called GKN47D (Google Lotus GKN47D). This original car of which only one was built, had a Rover 4.4L V8, and could do 163mph, 0-60mph 5secs, and 13.1 sec standing qtr. The replica car for sale was built in WA many years ago using an original 1969 Lotus Europa, fitted with a P76 4.4L V8 and Citroen 5 speed transaxle. When purchased the vehicle had been damaged and repaired following an accident but was unpainted. A full restoration/engineering project was undertaken by us on the vehicle with the chassis beng strengthened, a brand new Rover 4.6L (including high performance camshaft) engine being installed, new aluminium fuel tank, new wiring, new gear selection, new cooling system, new adjustable coil over suspension fitted, 4 wheel discs, new windscreen and further fibreglass body repairs undertaken. The engine has never been used. Many dollars and effort were put into this car over 2 years, however due to problems obtaining gear parts to repair the Citroen 5 speed transaxle, the project has remained unfinished, as other projects took precedence. Due to a relocation and change of circumstances, the car is now for sale. In its current state it now requires body prep and painting and installation of either a complete replacement Citroen transaxle or alternately the use of either a Renault, VW or Porsche transaxle. Due to the fact that the car is an unfinished project, it is being sold at an enormous discount on what has obviously been spent on the car. The engine alone is not far short of the asking price for the complete car.

        • Interesting body mods. It spent most of its life in Singapore and has aircon and period bucket seats. It needs full restoration. I believe the engine ran around a year ago and it was last on the road around 2000. I have no paperwork but I do have a bill of sale from when I purchased it.

      • Was towed off a rental property after sitting for 19 years untouched. It is not a "R" VIN, but the number on all 3 metal tags is 65 / 2086+. The 3 tags are the windshield VIN tag, the front compartment VIN# - engine# - transaxle# - color# info plate and the "build plate" in the front compartment which shows a build date of 18/08/1969. The towing operator is trying to get me a title based on a mechanics lien for storage costs. Otherwise, it too becomes a parts car.

      • Before we begin, please forgive my collosal ignorance. This is a Renault engine from a Lotus Europa - that much is certain. The rest I'm not so sure about. If you know anything about these engines, you'll know what you're looking at. The unit was removed from a car that was sent to be restored (not by me) around 20 years ago. The owner ran out of cash as the classic market disintegrated and gave up. So the restoring garage kept what they had and the chastened owner kept what had been removed. He then moved to a flat with no garage/storage and I inherited this and many other bits and pieces for +2 Elan and Europa. I have front and rear window glass for the Elan, for example and many other body parts - the sort of things you'd remove prior to a respray. I have no idea what this engine is like on the inside. If you're interested/curious it can be viewed in Metfield, Suffolk. I could get the head taken off if that would help. Whatever value there is in this is likely in its being an original item.

        • Current owner acquired the vehicle on the 17th November 2007 for full renovation and sympathetic upgrade.
      • 11/28/09
        • The following modifications were carried out during restoration.
        • Engine.
          • A Renault 807 block was obtained and re-worked to accommodate oversized liners giving a bore of 82.50 m/m and a stroke of 84.0 mm which increased the overall capacity to 1796 cc. The build was completed with a set of forged pistons, a Piper 272 camshaft and topped off with a fully gas flowed cylinder head fitted larger valves and twin 45 Delorto dcoe carbs. Estimated bhp circa 165/170 hp.
        • Original gearbox was replaced with an NG-1 5 speed and a 'Banks Europa' rear cross member modification installed.
        • Body & Running gear was completely restored and enhancements incorporated a bonded screen, Nacar side vents, twin fuel tanks, up rated disks, callipers and a full width alloy radiator. The car was painted in red & white and finished in 'Gold Leaf Team Lotus' livery.
        • Now returned to the road on 24/11/2009 and its performance is stunning.

        • I drove a white S2 this afternoon that's been on Craig's List for a few weeks. 65-2185 for the Registry, Jerry, and it has a cross flow with twin 40 DCOEs with a 4-speed. Pluses and minuses - sort of what you would expect - and I haven't checked it thoroughly. The brakes are pitiful, but it seems to handle fairly well. Rear wheel bearings may be okay; I didn't jack up the back of the car.

        • Model; 1969 Lotus Europe (yes, badged with EUROPE) S2
        • Condition; Drivable. Will be restored in time.
        • P.O. have most likely swapped engine. Is currently running what seems to be a Renault 807 engine. 1565CC with aftermarket turbo. Runs bad. I'm thinking of doing an engine swap, as Renault is, Renault.. Needs new bushes, and framework will in time be restored and painted. For now, is enjoyed as is, and I'm thinking of getting it "road Legal" before restoration begins.

        • 1565CC engine converted back from turbocharged. Removed the old turbo and Strömberg carburator. Found a 32/32 Weber from a 2.0L and installed it. Gets a little much fuel, but runs better without the turbo. Overhauled brakes and started repairing passenger door. New rear TCA, new rims and tyres on "to buy" list, and will be body off restored at end off year.

      • From ebay ad 8/10/10 - Lotus Barn Find
        • I want to start by saying that I know nothing about these unusual cars. I am listing this vehicle for a friend who does not have a computer. All questions should be directed to him. His name is Gary and he can be reached at 1-937-657-4286. I have looked at the car and can provide the following information. The Lotus is not running and needs a complete restoration. The car appears to be all there and I observed no major body damage. The glass is all good and the interior is dated. The frame and uncarriage appear to be solid.

        • 6/19/08 - Condition - sad, poor, fairly complete [missing gas tank]; moss growing inside, very rusted frame, cracked front nose.
        • 8/10/10 - For anyone considering this car, please take note. This is NOT a barn find. The car has been submerged at least 18" in water - long enough to leave a carefully removed [sometime last year] water line. Cracked windshield, black mold growing in the cockpit, no usable chrome, etc.

      • I have just got my hands on a 70 s2 I think . The vin plate has 10/69 : 65/2241. I'm pretty excited about this find and own a collision repair shop so a restoration is going to happen as soon as I put together my research which I'm sure I will need the clubs help & advice. Please email me with any help I can get on installing a z-tech engine & any possible transmission options to fit the z-tech. Looking forward to hearing and meeting other owners. My shop is 3 or 4 miles from Road Atlanta and hope to drive it on track days when completed.

      • After the last winter we changed my car from a semi-road-and-racing-car to a real race car. The Europa is now fixed wit all FIA appendix K regulations like roll cage etc. The engine was built by Jean-Marc Albert from Keos Racing in France. 1900ccm and real 196 hp. 8“ and 9“ Image wheels with Khumo 215/235 tires. The car is a real eye-catcher on the track. And sounds like a very big car :))

    • Condition:
      • It IS an S2. Warts, door handles, original sailplanes. The paperwork from the PO doesn't exactly clarify anything: the Indiana title lists it as a "71 Lotus, mfr's ID 0177R, type 2S". There is an ID plate (loose) that lists the unit number as 65/2285+, engine #0337, trans #00593. I do have the original Renault engine (totally disassembled, right down to the bare block) but haven't been able to dig down thru the pile enough to confirm the ID number on it. Is the number on the block?
      • The black car(?) is confirmed as #0177, no issues there. The red shell carries a tag with unit #7007200580R, vin #0580R.

      • I have just purchased an immaculate 1969 S2 Europa, VIN 652377 with 43000 original miles. The car was manufactured in October 1969. The previous owner had the car for twenty years and restored and repainted it fifteen years ago. At that time it was "defederalized", lowering it to the original ride height and the rear control arms were modified to allow the rear camber to be adjusted. The car is an immediate driver, only requiring a few housekeeping issues like gluing down carpet and the like. It has been meticulously maintained over the years by the previous owners brother, Ken Miles, who operates Miles Import Car Repair in Edmonton and it has been garaged during the time the previous owner had it.
        The original colour is not know (maybe yellow) but it is now a Warm Red and it was a body off repaint. The paint is flawless and has only a couple of stone chips. Mechanically the vehicle is in outstanding condition not requiring any work at all. Get in and drive.
      • The car has not been driven very much over the past few years as the previous owner's knees are not what they used to be, which was the impetus for selling the vehicle. For insurance purposes the car is being appraised but at this time the appraised value is not known although five years ago it was valued at approximately $12500 Canadian $.
      • I will split my fun car time between the Europa and my Mini. Hard to say which will bring the most fun!

      • I should add that the car still has its original engine number and chassis. (I have a crossflow head mounted on to the original block). Recently a 5 speed gearbox (type 385) from a R16 TX has been fitted. This required considerable internal modification in order to use a genuine 336 Lotus crownwheel and pinion. At the same time a twin link rear conversion from Banks Service station was added. Other modifications include uprated front stub axles and alloy hubs from Canley Classics, aluminium fuel tank, radiator, Fidanza flywheel and a Pipercross airbox in order to reduce induction noise.

        • It was first registered in January 1970 and I bought it in November 1971 in England. I took it to South Africa in February 1973 and then to Australia in 1983 where it still resides.

      • Owned since l977 with 50000 unloved miles on the clock. Fully restored in 1980/81 - new everything !!.
      • March 2008 - now 347000 miles, yes 3 4 7 0 0 0 miles, with very few problems. Journies throughout Europe every year - North to Danish border. East to Hungarian border - South to nearly Italy and South West to France & Spain regularly.
      • 03/08 undergoing engine and suspension rebuild ready for next trip in 05/08 to North West Spain and across the Pyrenees, again!. Probably one of the first Lotus Europa S2 to cross the Millau bridge in France with a 1968 Elan +2 (following of course!).
      • Car still in 'perfect' running order considering its age, and with the Gordini 807 with twin Dellorto carbs and 5 speed box (fitted 1979), it can still give the local "neanderthals" in their Saxo's etc a "good seeing to!"

        • 1970 Europa S2, purchased approximately September 1974, from Rallye Sports LTD in Fairfax, Virginia. Car price was $2,995, car was painted blue and I think that was the original color. Car had about 45,000 to 55,000 miles when purchased used. Serial Number was 65-2395. I owned this car for about two years and had the carb rebuilt, auxiliary radiator fan installed, accelerator pedal and cable replaced, and other minor maintenance items taken care of. I sold the car because it was flooded and after that was stored in a basement where clutch, brakes, etc., developed rust. Car sold to a man in Boston, Massachusetts area who said he wanted to make it a race car. Sales price was about $1300 to $1600. Body was in very good condition and the car was all original except for the floor carpeting. I sold the car because my independent Lotus mechanic’s estimates of repair costs were too much for a man about to get married and start a family.
        • I would be interested in learning if anyone out there has the car now. I really enjoyed driving it.

        • The car appears to be a very early series 2. The windshield is held in by a gasket rather than glued in like the 71 S2 I owned. There is no indication the car ever had external mirrors installed. It has the key mounted in the dash rather than the locking steering column. Unusual at least to me is that the single gas tank is mounted on the right side rather than the left. Every S2 with a single tank I've seen has the tank mounted on the left side and so far I don't see evidence that one was ever mounted there. The car sits relative low for a federal car so it may have had the ride height modified at some point. Of interest in the papers I received with the car was an owners manual and service book for a series 1 Europe in French.
        • The car on first inspection looks like it has been the victim on several restoration attempts and bad storage conditions. The right sail area has heavy damage to the inside and at the rear. The piece from the cabin back is broken out. I have the piece but because of the location it's going to be fun to fix. The story is that the DPO once removed dropped a tree branch on it causing the damage which I can believe because of the stress cracking n the right sail area. There's also damage to the right corner of the trunk lid and rear of the roof but these are relatively minor. The motor and transaxle are in the car and the gear box rotates but the crutch is frozen. The motor supposedly was rebuild and running shortly before the current DPO acquired the car but I have my doubts. Motor and transaxle both show a lot of surface corrosion so they may have been cleaned as part of the rebuild effort and left unprotected when the car sat. The carburetor and distributor were taken off the motor. The carburetor I got with the car isn't the correct Solex. It looks like a Holly Weber and will need to be replaced. The current wiring harness is part lotus and part do it your self so the car will need to be completely rewired. The left front wheel is frozen. Most likely the brake is frozen to the rotor.
        • The car has Ohio plates on it but has a Wisconsin title.
        • Assuming the frame is OK or repairable the plan is to disassemble the car and restore it as a driver with the Renault engine over the next several years.

      • The last time it was on the street was 1986. The owner was starting to do some repairs on the car but passed away. The car has been inside since that date. I know the owner had an extra gas tank installed and made some modifications to the engine. As you can see in the picture two Webber carbs have been installed. The master brake cylinder was being reinstalled but it's not finished. The car is being sold as is. The engine is not in running condition! Read on :) After I installed a gas pump it did start, that's it. You can see it's in nice shape. The bumpers are near perfect, no dents or scratches. The interior is in good shape but I see some wires hanging that I wouldn't know what they are for. The one tach was a modification that was installed, looks nice. I have the workshop manual. The car needs work!

      • By: Garry Parrish: I would like to locate my 1969 S2 Lotus Europa. First registered in CA with the tag 099BEK, The Serial Number is 65/2654, Engine No. 0449, and Transmission No. 874. It was originally painted a “special tangerine” color by Lotus. It’s not Lotus “Colorado Orange”, somewhat more red, but definitely orange. It has the Hermes HLR681 kit with high lift cam. I am optimistically using present tense in my description in hopes that it is still milling around happily as ever.

        • This is a mid-engine fiberglass body english sports car. It has a Renault 1565cc all-aluminum inline four. The gear box is a sychronized 4 speed transaxle (also Renault). Approximately 9300 Europas were made between 1966 and 1975.
        • The car is located in mid Maine, just north of Augusta. You are welcome to come and see the car in person.
        • The car is in good over all condition. The engine runs and shifts without problems and was registered and on the road last year. The interior is in good condition, the only thing that needs to be replaced is the headliner (see photo). There is a Nakamichi tape deck with a sony eq-amp with a power ant. The tires are new with little to no wear and are mounted on Panasport alloy wheels. The body is also in good condition, there is a bit of crazing in a few places, there was also some minor damage on the front left headlight, (only the paint was damaged). Bumpers front and readr are in great condition, no pits or rust. The car has various small paint chips on the body. The doors need to be readjusted and the weatherstriping could be replaced.There is a small oil leak (oil pan I think).
        • The only thing currently keeping the car off the road is the right front brake caliper sticks from time to time. I have purchased a nos girling for replacement that will require installation and will be included in the sale.
        • If the reserve price is met I will also include a second chassis, miss front and rear suspension parts, another front and rear bumper (they need to be replated or painted). Any questions feel free to ask.

        • 1969 lotus europa project car. The engine has over $1400 in machine work and needs to be assembled. It appears to be complete with lots of new parts such as je pistons,bearings,gasket set, rings, camshaft, etc. The body has a fair paint job that might be improved with wet sanding and a little tlc. There are a lot of new parts such as carb, headers, exhaust, wiring, weatherstrips, carpet set, mats, suspension parts, heater, and more. The seats have been recovered and look great. All 4 pieces of glass are in good shape. The only things we know that are missing are the bellhousing and 2 main cap bolts with are otc grade 8 bolts. We have located a used bellhousing for $75 plus shipping. There are too many parts to list. There is no way to ship all this so it must be picked up in hoover, alabama. Check the pictures and if you have any questions just ask and we'll respond quickly. Alabama did not have titles before 1975 models so we have no title. We will provide a notorized bill off sale.

      • I was told that it was a barn find from Canada before it was restored. The car is in very nice cosmetic shape. I added new wheel caps, a proper wiper blade, new badges an ash tray and repaired the trunk area. Other areas that need attention are shift linkage, very sloppy and throttle tends to stick. Otherwise this is a very nice Europa.

      • This car is still under Restauration and has been recently fully stripped. It was discovered that the real number of this car is 54/2453 from the small number on the boot back and also from the inside doors. Official French papers still carry 2731 and I suspect change was done by previous owner without telling me.

        • Titled as a 1970, Lotus Europa. Canadian spec car, body off restoration in the late 1980's , driven for one summer then stored in the garage ever since. The car needs a windshield and the engine is seized from sitting. The car is complete otherwise, all electricals work, door pins not seized, interior could use some work on upper door upholstery at window but otherwise not too bad, seats perfect, carpet faded by sun but would not replace. body needs paint, regular spider cracks in fibre panels, all running gear is good but since the car is based on Triumph underpinnings all is easily available. Tires on steel rims are shot, aftermarket alloy rims included (13"). Full set of manuals included.

      • This Europa raced for many years on various circuits around Canada, in the then GT2 which would now be Group 70. The body on this car has been modified with flairs which would need to be removed for production based vintage racing which is what I intended to do but woek finds me way to busy to be able to have this hobby. The body is fairly rough and needs completely restorig. The Engine is a cross flow Gordini with down draft webbers, oil cooler and a custom header. The Engine has nort been started in some time but does turn over. The car came off the track and was running when stored. It is the 4 speed box.

        • Just arrived at SportsCar LA. This Lotus Europa is finished in Silver with contrasting black interior. This fiberglass body Lotus is fitted with the popular 1600 Renault Engine. At only 1400lbs, These S2's are quick and responsive. The original color of this Lotus was Primrose yellow. Has the usual weak door hinges that will need to be repaired when the car is repainted. Drivers side door handle needs to be repaired. Electric windows work well. The dash and interior is very nice and original on the car. It has been recently serviced and starts, runs and drives very nicely. The car has been in California all its life and the chassis is totally rust free. This car is ready to be driven as is or a perfect example for a concourse restoration. We are asking a very fair price for this car. Please call us at SportsCar LA should you have any questions. Thank you.

        • This was at a recent event in New South Wales here at a place called "Wakefield Park". Its is about 150 miles south of Sydney and its was FREEZING cold on August 16, there was sleet falling and there was a prevailing wind and a stream of water crossing the track .
        • As you can see I have doing more work on the thing, it now is very stable at high speed (135mph) and stops very well too.
        • I have recently replaced the entire rear drive shafts (inner & outer) plus the hubs and the hub nuts. My advice to owners that are having stability problems at speeds around 70mph: its beacause the rear shafts, hubs and splines are worn and are starting to steer the car; so just replace the lot.

      • This is a 1969 Lotus Europa that is half restored. I have finished the frame, engine and transmission, and front suspension --all done in 2001. The frame needs a little touch up. The rear suspension has not been done. The seats are in great shape--no rips, cuts, or tears. The interior carpet however needs to be replaced. Door panels are ok. Doors have the usual Europa sag. The body needs to be taken down to the gel coat and then built back up. I have some new parts such as brake pads and shoes and some misc. bushings. I have the engine on a stand so I can run it some while out of the vehicle. Engine has been rebuilt. The engine has a weber carb and I have a solex carb that I bought on ebay. The car has been a restore project for a long time and I have lost interest.

      • My Father has had the car since 1973. It has needed body work for sometime, and we are finally restoring it this winter. When I have the car in my garage I will be able to give you the engine number, and trans number. I do know it is not the original engine, but one that had less miles on than the original. The current engine and transmission have been in the car since 1973, because my Father bought the car with a broken piston in the original engine.

      • This car was originally registered in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1971 ( I believe. ), and purchased by me in 1975. The car was campaigned for a number of years on the western Canada Autocross circuit and has had a number of minor modifications done for expediency which I now regret. (no modifications have been done to the engine or transmission.)
      • The car was a daily driver until 1995, and an occasional driver until 2000, but it has mostly been in the garage since then, with occasional start ups and trips around the block. Cosmetically, it is in poor shape with faded and cracked paint, but it starts and runs well and all the bits and pieces are there (somewhere). I am assessing the condition to see what should be done to put it into better shape.

The car was a complete basket case and is undergoing a complete restoration. Any history on this car would be great.

        • I am selling a 1970 Lotus Europa that was part of an estate inheritance. The car has not been registered since 1990. It was stored in a garage all this time in Indiana. I recently brought it back up to Michigan and transfered the title without a problem. I have performed a lot of mechanical work on it to get it going. It runs drives and stops. Most everything electronic works, lights, heater, cooling fans etc. I would highly reccomend this be trailered home since I have not really taken it anywhere far from home. The body is 100% fiberglass and it has aged well but to restore it properly it will need a few sopts attended too but it is not all spider cracked which is a tendancy on these cars. Its non original paint and its not in the great of shape there are some scuffs. The interior is pretty nice original not major rips or tears. It is a rear engine 4 cylinder rear wheel drive and the steering is on the right hand side so this is the european version. I dont know when it was imported. I have a lot of paperwork and books on the car and will get pictures up soon!

      • Purchased it this month (December), sellers detail history below as per sales info. Have noticed in the Workshop manual spec sheets - many references to Hermes upgrades, car currently has a single Weber carb.
        • "It was my wish to own a Lotus Europa for many years after seeing one in the Princes car collection, Monte Carlo. I wanted a very original one with a known history & free from modifications. bought this Europa from an 80 year old retired engineer living a few miles from Cambridge, who purchased it in June 1996 as a retirement hobby. According to the paperwork he paid 1996. Terry Chinery told me he drove it for 200 miles in the first summer of ownership, & began his restoration almost immediately. It then stayed in his heated double garage (see picture) 13 years until sale to my partner & I. During the 13 years he owned it, much work was done until illness & injury left Terry with no choice but to sell on the Lotus, as an incomplete project.

          Below is a list of the work Terry completed in the 13 years.

          Engine & gearbox removed, whole engine bay cleaned, painted/restored. Chassis from mid section back looks blasted & coated, in excellent condition. Rear suspension, shocks & springs replaced. Drive Axles, removed recoated. Many of the ancilliary parts were replaced with new parts, such as alternator, coil, distributor etc... Rear brakes overhauled & left spotless, with lines, & brake components. Brake hubs restored & painted. Cooling pipes replaced throughout with new non corrosive copper pipes running from front to back. I imagine he had cleaned engine & gearbox thoroughly as both were pretty much spotless on sale to me & still are. I think this covers most of it although I am sure there was much more that I have either overlooked noticed. The front of the car looks largely in original condition, & was not restored although it is in good condition nevertheless.

          Terry Chinery purchased the Lotus from the original owner, Mr Robert Diamond of Meldreth, Cambridgeshire. Terry tells me that Mr Diamond had worked in London City, & the Lotus something of a summer/weekend plaything for him. It was always garaged during this time, as the condition testifies. The paperwork states that “the Lotus converted within 6 months of Original purchase by Messrs. Hermes Cars Ltd., and restored to original specification (i.e Lotus version of Renault 16 engine in 1978 or thereabouts. Known defects at the time a) reversing light U/S.

          It was the originally supplied engine that was refitted in 1978 + gearbox, I cannot remember the name of the engine Messrs Hermes fitted between 1970 & 1978 but it was a French made gearbox, apparently it was a common conversion.

          The Mot for 1977 states the mileage already at 31,135 so it is to be assumed that the current & original 1470cc engine & gearbox have covered less than 14,000 miles in total. The fact purr sounds akin to a quiet sewing machine rather than a Lotus engine bears this out!

          So to summarise, 3 owners in 42 years since new, original engine & gearbox having covered under 14,000 miles. Lotus always kept indoors & stored during restoration for past 16 years.

          During my ownership I have put the engine & gearbox back in, connected everything that needed connecting (except heater matrix), over a year ago. I have had the non original period shot blasted, & powder coated a metallic dark grey."

      • This 1971 S2 Europa had 10 previous owners some of whom had damaged various parts so it required a full nut and bolt rebuild. There are many non standard parts including a Twin Cam back. So purists please forgive me. It is now in nearly perfect condition (one panel needs respraying) and has covered only 1500 miles since the rebuild.

      • I have a S2 Europa that my Dad bought a while back. It was being raced in our historic series here in S.A. but it's pretty sad at the moment. The chassis no. is 7103060275P and is (I think) Lotus yellow. My Dad has repaired the frame (the frame had been cut away in the engine bay) and the suspension and the next job is the bodywork, of which the main problem's are a biiig crack at the top back of the driver's door and finding a windscreen. Apart from a photo in a magazine of it racing I don't know any of it's history yet but I am e-mailing Lotus to see if the have any records of it.

      • Newly acquired. Laid up for 25 years before being bought in early 2014. That owner replaced much of the cooling and ignition systems and refurbished the interior.
      • I acquired the car in November 2014. I am currently assessing the condition of all the parts. I was told the engine was not running at this time although I was shown footage of the engine running.
      • At this stage I’m inclined to refurbish what is there and then perhaps make changes to the engine at a later stage.

Also moved to Audi A4 transaxle (6 sp manual). Am about to have it resprayed in Type 47 Cirrus White (& probably the British Racing Green stripe) & will send some photos eventually.
      • 4/27/07
        • Was road going good condition "original". Now being rebuilt into a general road/competition car. Circuit, hill climb sprint etc. Mazda 12A rotary, Renault Fuago '85 5 speed box. Big discs (inboard at rear). Rear end, upper & lower links with sliding CV joint drive shafts.
        • Update: 4/27/07
        • Now finished & ready to race for the first time on 6 May 2007. Current (running in) dyno results 184bhp @ 8000rpm at the wheels.

        • It has been some time since I last ran my S2 Europa on the track. The last 18 months have been spent house building and setting up my shed.
        • On Sunday I spent the day at Sandown raceway with the Alfa Romeo Owners Club. After a really good tuning session on Saturday the car felt as lively as it had ever been. Mid-range pulling power increased noticeable after tweaking the points, plugs and main jets. I also removed the air filter. Towards the end of the first outing, the tyres had warmed and the brakes settled in. I was pulling around 7000rpm in 4th on the back straight when a valve dropped and lunched the engine. I took a few photos yesterday while the car was on the hoist. The tear –down will be interesting
        • I did manage to better my previous time by 0.8 seconds, so I have something to smile about.

      • Condition very good. Complete in all aspects (badges,etc). Motor replaced in 1983 with a 2000cc Ford Pinto. Car has 42,000 genuine miles from new, thus good original carpets, original seats, etc. Is sitting as a retirement project (soon) for owner but little to actually do on it. May paint it a different color! Has been garaged for all of its life. Not for sale, the car is very happy living with its owner. Owner gets in it and can't stop smiling.

      • Car is in complete restoration. Engine is stuck, transmission probably ok. Transmission replaced with 336-60 4-speed transmission. Body was modified, so bought another body with original arches and nose. Original body will be use for parts. Chassis is rusty and damaged on front box. Probably due to hard bump on right front suspension.

      • Original color: Green
    • Condition:
      • Current color: Sanded
      • Type 54
      • Chassis number: 70061902690
      • Note: the plate and stamp both show a '0' as the last digit, though it seems that it should have been a Q. I note that every other car in your registry with this scheme of numbering has a letter at the end of the VIN. I also note that every car in the Export section of the registry is listed as a type 65, yet the plate on this one plainly says Type 54.
      • Original transmission: 336.56 #1274
      • Engine: 821-30. ID plate on car says plate says "2629". Actual engine number plate on the block says 821-30 129290
      • This motor has, however, been fitted with a cross flow head from an 807 motor (these were very common in australia).
      • Colour: seems to have been Green. currently sanded back to fibreglass
      • Condition: motor seized; has been inhabited by mice; missing one seat; interior ruined; needs complete rebuild.
      • Known history: car was purchased from deceased estate of David Haydon in Sydney region, in December 2013. David owned if from some time in the late 80s, and raced it on track and in rallies. The tyres on the car have a manufacturing date in 1994 and the dont show a lot of wear, so it presumably became unregistered not too long after that. The car was in a shed when I bought it, but must have been sitting out in the weather at some point as it has rusted door hinges (rare in australia), the interior is ruined, and is generally showing signs of being exposed to the elements.

      • I just found your website and I thought I should fill in some details of a Europa I owned for 13 years. I sold it in ’97 and sadly I have no idea of its current status.
      • Original Color: Yellow. When I bought it, it had been resprayed very poorly (also in yellow but a darker shade)
      • Color Now: White (in 1997 anyway)
      • Condition: Body-off rebuild with the following modifications: rear “arms” boxed in with 16g steel from motor mounts to rear body mounts; new rear cross-member fabricated from 1”x2”x16g RHS with 1/8” thick end brackets; Heim-jointed adjustable rear lower control arms (made by me), all suspension joints renewed including front trunnion kits; Spax dampers with custom springs (different to the specs in the workshop manual which are way out for the rear suspension); new front sway-bar; new brake lines and pipes; alloy radiator pipes; rebuilt 1565cc TS engine with 2-choke downdraft Weber; new custom shift fork rod in 4-spd transaxle (original snapped through roll-pin hole); except for the shift lever, all joints in the gearshift were replaced with bronze-bushed Heim joints; original radiator assembled incorrectly so that got modified; new hand-brake cables; alloy fuel tank to different design (same capacity, lower CG); very slight flares on rear wheelarches (no longer necessary); 1/2” MGB wheel studs; ROH “Superlite” 6x13” wheels with Japanese Dunlop 185/60 (F) and 205/60 (R) tyres; Moto-Lita Mark 4 13” steering wheel; new Lotus walnut gear knob; new custom pedal bracket with ¼” alloy plate underfloor brace that extends to the matching set of bolt-holes on the passenger side; throttle linkage reinforcing plate mounted in front luggage compartment; interior fully re-trimmed in plain black vinyl (i.e. no basket-weave); new carpet; new stereo/speakers; bored out and bronze-bushed door hinges; new custom stainless steel door hinge pins and custom pin clamps; rally pins on the front bonnet (the lock broke and I could not source a replacement at the time); band-tinted Royal Doulton windscreen (it had this when I got it); new felt-lined plastic glove box (I made this myself to replace the Samsonite one that rotted away); lots of s/s and aircraft-grade hardware throughout. When I started the rebuild/restoration and stripped the interior I got a severe shock to find that the roof had apparently been cut off and then amateurishly reattached (I always wondered why the pillars looked kind of weird) so I had to do a great deal of glassing and grinding to fix that. I used some unidirectional CF to reinforce the pillars (only the A-pillars had been cut; the second cut was midway along the roof and I have never been able to work out why someone would do that). The front end bodywork was damaged in a crash so I cut it off and bought a replacement from a local supplier, but I didn’t know there were two different S2 front ends and of course I got the wrong one. Since it was custom-ordered I couldn’t return it and I eventually got it to fit okay. I also made moulds from the bumpers and made lightweight fibreglass ones to avoid the rust and scratching inherent in the steel originals. It had been out of registration for a while and when I went to get it re-registered the RTA would not accept the chassis # on the plate, they wanted to see the one stamped in the chassis itself and I was unable to find it so they issued a new number (which I don’t have a record of) and shortly after I found the original, on the outside of the right rear chassis arm near the motor mount – it just had “0270Q” instead of the whole string.
      • I don’t know if this is of any use since I no longer own the car; If I think of any more details I’ll let you know. These mediocre pics show it just before I sold it.

      • Original color: L10 - Bahama Yellow
    • Condition:
      • Current color: BRG
      • Body-off restoration commenced June 2014 and target date for completion is fall 2015 using an A7L crossflow engine, more aggressive camshaft, Dellorto DHLA 40's, tuned header, and 42/35.35 valves. The A7L, used in the Turbo Fuego, was similar in most respect to the 843 engine used in the R17 Gordini except for the turbocharger; the A7L also used smaller (38mm) intake valves.
      • Color is presently BRG, not the original L010 Bahama Yellow, but it will be repainted in L07, Lotus Yellow.
      • Interestingly, the engine in the car is not an 821-30/0861 as it should be, but rather a 697-04/0307; this engine was originally in S1/460259, which appears shaded in the Registry meaning "unregistered".
      • I will attempt to contact a previous owner to determine status of 460259.

      • Current color: Navy metallic that has aged reasonably well given the woes of fiberglass.
      • Sold in May 2010 - PO: Joseph Olin Agoura Hills, California, USA
        • Update 1/5/10 - Bradley D. Olin
          • I've been working on the car for my dad, Joseph Olin, in preparation to sell it. The car is currently being garaged in Santa Cruz, California.
          • Recent work since the last registry update:
            • Replaced Passenger Window Motor
            • Replaced Valve-Cover Gasket
            • Replaced Spark Plugs
            • New sealing fuel cap
            • Replaced Air Filter with K&N
            • Carburetor Adjusted
            • Optimized Distributor Timing (needed advancing)
            • Replaced approximately 10' of inner-chassis hard-line with silicon hose
          • Also of note:
            • Fuel Tank was replaced at some point with a larger tank. Approx. 9 gallons
          • Needs Attention:
            • Front Sway Bar Mount Has Snapped off on Passenger Strut
            • Interior is still rough - Door panels, carpet, headliner need TLC
            • Choke line needs adjustment
            • Passenger door alignment issues (door opens fine from inside)
          • Photos
        • Update 6/3/08:
          • Overall, a good unrestored Lotus but worn.
          • The paint appears to be original and looks good from about 10 feet away, but because it is 38 years old it does have cracks and scratches (someone keyed the bonnet). There are also some small cracks in the fiberglass at the front left fender, and the nose looks slightly "dented" along with the bumper.
          • The frame is rust-free.
          • The engine starts right up and runs strong with no smoke (the previous owner said it was recently rebuilt but it didn't come with receipts). Shifts and brakes well (new master cylinder). Weber carburetor and a gear-reduction starter have been added (the original carb and starter are included). The engine has been recently tuned up with new plugs, points, condenser, cap, and rotor.
          • Most of the electrics work, including the power windows. Turn signals and brake lights do not work (some of the wiring looks disconnected).
          • The interior is original but worn; the drivers seat is taped, the carpet is bad, the headliner has rips, the vinyl top of the dash has one 2" crack, but the wood dash is better than it appears - only the varnish is cracking.
          • The glass all looks good with no chips/cracks.
          • The muffler needs to be replaced.
          • The alternator works but is misaligned.
          • The car features rare Cosmic wheels (6 wheels come with the car!).
          • The tires are the wrong size; they rub on the inner wheel wells on sharp turns (wheels are correct though).
          • The passenger door needs to be adjusted.
        • Update 2/2/09:
          • Will re-paint to original color later this spring.
          • The engine is strong and has remained problem free other than some timing issues with a problem distributor.
          • Have addressed the following:
          • Radiator and cooling system replacing all hoses.
          • Replaced broken shift-lever rod in transaxle.
          • Replaced broken hinge on passenger door (ouch! What a pain!)
          • Replaced broken Koni shocks, front and rear with new Konis. (full-soft)
          • Replaced ball-joints.
          • Replaced brake hydraulic cylinders.
          • Replaced brake pads & shoes.
          • Replaced broken exhaust manifold bolts and re-attached header.
          • Rebuilt Weber DC36 downdraft carb.
          • Installed new muffler and tail pipe.
          • Installed new Kumho 175/70/13 on Cosmics.
          • Re-attached a number of wires so that nearly all gauges work.
        • Next steps:
          • Getting gauges to work accurately.
          • Spec-out the interior for refitting liners/carpets/door vinyl.
          • Install new wiring.
          • Determine level of pain for refinishing and painting.
          • Up until today’s broken ignition switch the car on the road has been incredibly rewarding. Makes me smile just to fold my 55 year old frame into the seat!

      • The exterior is in good shape, there are a few small chips and the usual stress cracks, all the badges are there and all the chrome looks good. The interior looks good. The dash has been painted with a textured paint and looks great (I think it looks better than the wood grain). All of the gauges and switches work. The center console is plywood wrapped in vynel(looks nice but I think it would be better with the original console). There are a few scuffs in the seats but over all they are in great shape and very comfortable. The headliner needs to be redone for some reason its the only thing on the car done poorly. The engine has been rebuilt and runs good and strong the carbs have been replaced with a single downdraft carb. The rims have been powder coated and has new tires. It also has adjustable coilovers in the rear.

      • It IS an S2. Warts, door handles, original sailplanes. The paperwork from the PO doesn't exactly clarify anything: the Indiana title lists it as a "71 Lotus, mfr's ID 0177R, type 2S". There is an ID plate (loose) that lists the unit number as 65/2285+, engine #0337, trans #00593. I do have the original Renault engine (totally disassembled, right down to the bare block) but haven't been able to dig down thru the pile enough to confirm the ID number on it. Is the number on the block?
      • The black car(?) is confirmed as #0177, no issues there. The red shell carries a tag with unit #7007200580R, vin #0580R.

      • Prior history unknown. I bought it as a retirement project and I've got about 2 years to go. But I believe I might start on it this winter. It is now much deeper in the garage than the photos show.
      • I previously had a Twin Cam that was sold when I left Colorado, fate unknown.

      • It has been sitting in a covered garage since 1976. So it's very dusty and some things that should move are stuck. Like the crankshaft, for one. :-) The good news is that I bought it from the original owner, it has less than 30,000 miles on it, and everything is there.

      • I did it now, I just purchased a pretty cool project 70 Europa. It's got super potential, a lot already done. Zetec, 5 speed, "Alfa Sport" twin Webber 45 DCOEs with a reprogrammed ignition box. Twin link rear set up, flares. It ought to go like "Yea Baby!"
      • The fellow did some other interesting things. He reverse cloned the gas tank so he'd have 2 instead of just the one 7 gallon. He reverse cloned the radiator too! Yea, left and right radiators. Also, he installed what looks like it's gotta be factory, a solid panel sunroof. It doesn't let any light in, not sure what it's called really. I don't know what it came out of, it looks great. Fully boxed, fully framed (all fiberglass, you'd swear its factory) with drain tubes, etc. Slick. I think I might try to make a different panel for it with a double bubble top, so I can fit in with a helmet on.
      • Lots to still do, I'll be screaming for help!
      • If I regain my sanity I might try to move it on to someone with the time, talent, bucks, whatever to see it done. Meanwhile, I'm still dreaming of paint schemes.

Wiring will need to be done and guages and switches reinstalled. Steering column and shifter need to be reinstalled. Have two engines including one in car but will need to get running. Nothing major is believed to be wrong with either.

        • I purchased it from Jerome Winick in 11/1982 for $3,500 and sold it about a year later to Sara Hansen.
        • Here are some pics of the car. I did manage to get a few speeding tickets in and around Pacific Coast Hwy/Santa Monica and Malibu. One of which I scanned to prove it ran. The photos are out at the Paramount Ranch Sports Car Race Track before it was transferred to the National Park Service.

      • I am in the process of slowly restoring this Europa as time allows. The previous owner had the engine rebuilt but I have not tried to start it because the dash and electricals were mostly removed when I got it. I have finished the dash removal (@#%$@* defrost vent screws) and am redoing it currently. The interior needs some work--seats re-upholstered, carpet cleaned, etc. The body is in good condition except for the usual stress cracks. A paint job will be required. I found a set of Cosmic wheels and had them re-finished. That's where I am at this point.

        • This car was purchased disassembled, as a project. I have too many projects, and have decided to sell the Lotus as it is.
        • The car has the 1545 CC Renault engine. This appears to be the original. The engine was rebuilt in Cleveland last year. This included new pistons/sleeves, valves, rockers, pushrods etc, and has been installed in the car. I replaced the clutch and had the transmission checked and cleaned. Electrical wiring has not been completed, but all appears there, and most was tagged on dissasembly. A newer battery is included.
        • The body has no major damage nor repairs. There are some spider cracks typical of almost any Lotus this age. Suitable for a driver, should be done up if used for show. The car was kept indoors, and has no noticeable rust. All is very easy to assemble/dissasemble.
        • Other work done includes new brakes all around, new clutch, new tires, new exhaust (you may want a quieter muffler). Also, many of the suspension fasteners were replaced during assembly.
        • The interior is partially dissasembled, as I had started to remove the dash for re veneering and never completed. All parts and gages appear to be there for reassembly.
        • I believe everything required to put back together is there, but what you see in the photos is what you get. I will not be responsible for any missing items or fasteners.
        • The car has a current and valid Ohio title.
        • The vehicle is not running, but is rolling. Customer will be responsible for pick-up. I would urge a trailer or hauler. A car dolly might work, but the vehicle is low clearance and could be damaged. Weight is around #1400.
        • The mileage is not backed by documentation and could possibly be inaccurate, although I believe it is a good reading. Engine was out when titled, so Ohio marks title accordingly. It is obvious that this vehicle has been garaged. This vehicle has a smooth shifting transmission.
        • Other work required will be reattachment of wiring, assembly and cosmetics of interior, redo of dash (recommended), adjustment of valves, carburetor, timing etc. As shown, documents include the Shop Manual, engine manual, parts and assembly "tips" sheets, and a spare manual that has series 2 info.

      • The car is remarkably untouched, original and uncut down to it's original wheels and hubcaps. It's wiring system also seems to be original and uncut, escaping from the "improvements" many of these cars suffer from. The chassis has surface corrosion but after a swipe with a wire brush in the initial inspection, it too seems to be in decent shape, unstressed at the shock towers or at the front end. The Renault engine is, at this point, unstarted, but is free and turns easily. 287 has improved markedly from many liberal doses of PB Blaster penetrant.
      • The body will be removed this fall when a closer inspection and clean up will be well under way. So far, so good. Completion 2012?
      • Looking for history on this car if available.
      • From ebay ad - 4/24/10
        • This car is complete and original but has been off the road and last registered in the 1980's. It has the original Renault 4 cylinder engine, it is not running and no attempt has been made to start it. The glass body is straight with layers of old flaking paint but no damage other than where someone put a hole in the drivers floor by apparently jacking up with a floor jack. The frame is solid and it is nice that in general nothing has been taken apart or removed from the car so it is ready and waiting to be either fixed up to make a driver or restored.

      • The car apparently sat in the weather for years, & the interior is poor. The engine, head off, is seized up. I have a Silvertop 20V Toyota engine for installation, per John Pels of Houston, retaining Toyota ECU & fuel injection system as stock.
      • Early stages of body off resurrection, NOT restoration. Wilwood hanging brake & clutch pedals. Plan is to totally rewire the car with C.B. protected busses for the various systems.
      • I would be interested in knowing more of the car's history.

      • Hi all,
      • Mike Allen here in San Antonio, Tx.
      • For many years I have dreamed of having a Europa and it looks like I am going to get my wish soon. I located a 70 that appears to be fairly complete and the body looks like it has never been violated. The suspension all looks like it came from the factory; no obvious repairs.
      • The car is currently painted orange but according to the S/N information I have been able to track down it left the factory Bahamas Yellow (actually Lotus Yellow - ed.).
      • Engine is still the R16 Renault with an aftermarket aluminum intake manifold (Hermes?) and a DCOE. I have not checked the engine S/N yet but I have no reason to suspect it is not the original. Original seats & inner door panels are missing as is the drivers wing window. (anyone have an extra?) Otherwise it looks complete and not hacked on. It also has 13" Panasports or Minilite wheels.
      • Best of all, $1800.00.

New transmission tunnel with car. Spare set of wheels. Some modifications done like removed chrome bumpers. Changed side and front marker lights. Lots of spares and parts included.

        • Has been off the road for about 7 years.I have stored it in my garage, and started it quite frequently. The motor was rebuilt around 4,000 miles ago,and runs very well. It runs cool,and has good oil pressure. It is fitted with a downdraft Weber carb,and a K+N filter. Included,is a Hermes sidedraft Weber conversion kit,with the intake manifold,40 DCOE Weber,K+N filter,header,and muffler-a rare kit!IThe car is fitted with Yokohama tires on Panasport alloy wheels,both of which are excellent. Cosmetically,it has the usual spider-cracks,and needs paint. It needs to be gone thru-brakes need bleeding,the electrical system is not horrible,but needs attention-a good example that could be really nice without too much outlay. In addition,I will include a parts car-it has been stripped of most major components(except engine),and I will include all from that. A factory Europa manual is included. I have owned this for 20 years,and enjoyed it's ultra-precise handling very much.

        • Has been off the road for about 7 years. (Trust me, it shows.) I have stored it in my garage (Does not quite explain the accumulation of dirt unless the roof had a hole in it),and started it quite frequently. The motor was rebuilt around 4,000 miles ago,and runs very well. It runs cool,and has good oil pressure (Hmmm,not sure how he would know that as the guage does not work). It is fitted with a downdraft Weber carb,and a K+N filter. Included,is a Hermes sidedraft Weber conversion kit,with the intake manifold,40 DCOE Weber,K+N filter,header,and muffler-a rare kit! The car is fitted with Yokohama tires on Panasport alloy wheels,both of which are excellent. Cosmetically,it has the usual spider-cracks (Along with major chunks of paint simply missing and at least two major cracks in the body),and needs paint. It needs to be gone thru-brakes need bleeding,the electrical system is not horrible (besides being forced to get down on my knees with a screwdriver to get it started and the fact that NOTHING electrical works),but needs attention-a good example that could be really nice without too much outlay. (Tell that to my body man).

        • 1970 Lotus Europa, stored for 17 years, has been driven the last year and is a good driver. Shift linkage has been rebuilt and is tight, carb has been rebuilt. Tires are new. stainless steel hinge pin kit has been installed in drivers door. Still has it's original ashtray, which always is missing from these cars. 90% original paint, no rust on chassis. Needs paint and some light interior work, mostly just a carpet and wood refinishing on the dash. One small wear mark on drivers seat but no tears in upholstery, door panels nice, headliner nice. Nice driveable car that would make a fun, easy project. Drive it home.

        • This car recently came out of a heated shop where it was stored since 1993. The car shows 67,000 on the odometer and has the original Renault 4 cylinder motor married to a 4 speed transaxel. The motor and trans are original to the car as is verified by their numbers.
        • After flushing all the fluids and performing some general maintenance on the car it started right up and idled smoothly (although the carb will need adjusting and cleaning from the long storage). I took a quick compression test and the cylinders all read between 160 and 168 . The engine wiring harness will need some sorting based on some wires requiring reconnecting (nothing butchered just needs tracing down and reconnected in the correct place).. The clutch feels fine (has plenty of pressure) and the car shifts well through all the gears. I also installed a new battery along with new platinum plugs. When stored new antifreeze was installed and it still looked new when I examined the cooling system before starting it. VERY strong running engine!
        • The brakes will need attention after sitting for as long as they were (the rear brake pistons look like they had been replaced shortly before storage along with the passenger side half shaft). The car is silver in color with a black bottom edge trim as shown in the photos.
        • The steel chassis shows NO sign of damage and looks to be rust free.
        • Body: There is some checking and crazing in the top coat in various places. Overall the body is in good shape for the age and was probably saved from major abuse by being stored indoors since 1993.
        • Interior: The seats are in pretty decent shape (silver and black). There is no carpet installed so the pan and trans tunnel are bare fiberglass (originally those areas were covered in carpet) although the carpet panel is present behind the seats on the rear bulkhead. The original dash was removed and aluminum panels were installed with the original gauges placed in the panels by a previous owner. This handiwork will need to be undone and the original wood dash re-installed if one wanted to go back original (the original wood dash is included but the vener is peeling). The wiring under the dash will also need sorting as the prior owner did not connect the wires back to their correct places so some of the switches work and others dont. I did check out the door window motors (by jumping out the correct wires) and they work fine.and the ventilation blower and electric cooling fan motors work fine.
        • Tires and rims; The tires are in decent shape for tires that have been sitting for 19 years. I wouldn't use them for driving it though;:) The rims on the car are Shelbys. I do have a set of original Europa rims which are available in place of the rims currently on the car. Your choice but I will need a couple of days to get them swapped out before you can pick up the car.

      • Purchased approx 15 years ago as a basket case. Striped car and started glass repair. Now 15 years later picking up where I left off finishing all glass repairs. I also was thinking about doing a conversion to a Mazda 13B rotary motor, purchased and stored for years also. Now, re-thinking that plan and thinking about installing the original renault 4 cyl motor. That motor needs sleeves but the other parts seem rebuildable. Xmission is original and all nbrs match dataplate.

      • Medium overall condition. The car now has a Toyota 4AGE engine in it with the Pels adapter kit and a cable shift mechanism. Also added are Spax adjustable coil over shocks and adjustable lower links in the rear, a chin spoiler, and the battery has been relocated to the front of the car. In between break downs, it drives great!

      • In 1970, as a returnee from Vietnam, I was able to buy a new Europa without Federal taxes. Although I cannot remember the exact price, I do remember it was less than $3000.00.
      • I loved the car, but someone liked it more than I.
      • It was found a week after reporting the car stolen. Burned out, why someone torched it, I haven't a clue to this day. I had been driving the car less than 6 months.
      • It was towed and totaled at Goldie's Junk Yard in Quincy, MA.

      • New baby here. I posted a video of my europa a few monthes back on YouTube. I've owned the car since 1993 and did a ton of work on it then. As you can see from the video I still have some electrical to do. Bouncing tach, broken speedo cable that was new when I worked on the car in 93. I've driven the car 1,000 miles since the work I've done. I start the car once a week and drive it around the block and sometimes to work 20 miles. I'm hoping to spend more time on the car this spring and summer. Mods are cool air intakes on the sides, lamans filler necks for the tanks, rear swaybar, stainless steel seat rails, stainless door pins, front air dam.

      • The car has been in storage for many years. Prior to 2000 it was in running condition, the carburator was stolen so it has not been started since then. The body is in good condition with some spyder cracks due to age and the interior is in decent shape as well.

    • Condition:
      • 7006190517R has changed hands. I am the new owner of this project. I purchased it from the previous owner because it was an S2 with a twin cam engine installed. I have taken the car completely apart to strengthen the frame where it was cut to install the twink. All new suspension has been installed and the body is on for mock up purposes. The firewall will need to be moved forward to truly clear the front of the engine. The PO had removed the sound insulating material for clearance and installed a piece of tin covered in 70’s velour. It must have been pretty loud in the cab. The body has some scrapes and spider cracking but is in generally good condition for being 40+ years old. Barry Spencer, a local Lotus mechanic specialty shop, rebuilt the twink to Sprint Spec. We utilized a block from another twin cam (Stromberg head) to get the benefit of the later crank and a block with the numbers still on it. PASpeedo rebuilt the gauges for me. I plan to use a Cable-X unit to run the speedo. The transmission is an NG-3 from a Fuego and the mount kit came from Banks. I worked with Minilite USA on the wheels. I went to 14" wheels because it is so hard anymore to find decent rubber for 13" rims. The offsets were very carefully figured so that 6” rims could be used out back yet still fit nicely in the wheelwells. I do plan to install A/C and have found a nice dual unit evaporator/heater core from Old Air Products. Their 800 Series units fit right in the front luggage area. Ducting will be split from the front grill so that air flows to the radiator and the condenser. More photos as we move forward.

      • 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.

      • Vehicle is complete and is driven daily.
      • The engine is an 807 Gordini with a mild port job and a hot cam. It runs on a SDS programmable fuel injection and ignition system. Injectors are Ford motorsport 5.0 mustang units, fuel pressure regulator is an aeromotive billet assy. fuel pump is a Porsche turbo assy, Ign. box is a Mallory Hyfire. It has a custom built merged header and stainless muffler. Intake is a modified R17 TS. Denso Iridium plugs are used. It has remote oil filter and cooler. All oil, fuel and brake lines are aircraft braided. Trans is a 4 speed but car also comes with a 5 speed (was going to put it in but found it unnessessary) Tires are 195/50/zr15 front and 235/45/zr17 rear on 15x7 and 17x8 koening graphite rims. Shocks are coilover adjustables with adjustable damping. Suspension bushes are urethane when possible. Body work and paint are excellent/ new, chrome is new. Interior is new. Steering wheel and gearshifter are new Momo pieces. Tach is a new VDO inside the old casing. The other guages are original and work well. The dash is the original wood and should be redone. The only flaw is a broken speedo cable that needs replacing.

      • It IS an S2. Warts, door handles, original sailplanes. The paperwork from the PO doesn't exactly clarify anything: the Indiana title lists it as a "71 Lotus, mfr's ID 0177R, type 2S". There is an ID plate (loose) that lists the unit number as 65/2285+, engine #0337, trans #00593. I do have the original Renault engine (totally disassembled, right down to the bare block) but haven't been able to dig down thru the pile enough to confirm the ID number on it. Is the number on the block?
      • The black car(?) is confirmed as #0177, no issues there. The red shell carries a tag with unit #7007200580R, vin #0580R.

      • From Last Owner:
      • I purchased it on 11/03/05 for $850.00. Currently it is some shade of white. It had a poor re-spray at some point in life and is in desperate need of body repairs and a proper repaint. Had been sitting since 1979 when "it died". I was able to get the engine started the day after I brought it home by repairing the burned up coil wire, cleaning the plugs, cap and rotor and supplying fresh gas. Amazingly everything electrical works except the horns but basically seems to need a complete restoration. Currently I am looking to get the vehicle driveable so I can better assess the vehicle and situation.

      • While in the US Air Force in 1971 at RAF Upper Heyford I bought a new 1970 federal Europa (0657R). After many adventures, it returned to the US with me, where I found out why the maintenance book (a coupon book which told you what service was needed each 3,000 miles,) expired at 60,000 miles. The car expired at 67,924 miles! and was given to a friend. I still have the tyres, wheels, some blocks and a RF S2 clip. The car was driven to work daily, raced, rallied, dragged, and entered in production car trials. I have plenty of wonderful memories!

      • Has been a racecar since 1977 or earlier. I purchased it in the spring of 05 and have gone through it as it had not been raced since 2000. I am racing it in the Oregon SCCA vintage class and NORPAC series. The engine was built by Arnie Loyning and Dyno's at 102 hp. It has a full roll cage, adjustable Spax shocks, adjustable anti-roll bars, fuel cell, fire suppression system, rear fender flairs and is very cramped for a guy my size, ( I am 6'2") but is great fun to drive! The car was red when I bought it, but will be back from the painter tomorrow (4/10/06) in a tree frog green and black racing stripe scheme.

        • I'm listing this car on my wife's account. I purchased this car in 1988 & titled it in 1993. When I purchased the car it ran but had a hole in the side of the engine block. I ordered a used but identical bare block from Sports Car World in Texas.(receipts included). I used the original crank shaft & cylinder head after reconditioning them & had the engine rebuilt with new parts. I added an electric fuel pump. It ran great -That was in 1988! I had the interior redone, door panels, carpet , seats repaired, headliner replaced,laminated the wood dash, installed new door weatherstrip & replaced the door hinge bushings. Then it was parked in my garage. The car hasn't been started since 1997 !! I temporarily put a hot battery in it & cranked it over a couple of times. So I know the engine is not stuck. The fuel pump kicked on ,the power windows worked & the headlights & tail lights came on. The oil & antifreeze was full & looked clean (anti -40 degrees). The car has been 3 different colors with the original color being Bahama Yellow ,paint code L10. The car will need everything that a car which has been sitting for 15 years would need ! (brakes went through,fluids changed & flushed,steel gas tank cleaned, electrical components checked ,etc...) I have 2 sets of keys for every lock & they all work. All the glass is good (not cracked) What I know it needs- the tires are 24 years old, it needs a complete repaint of the body,fender mounted mirror is gone, complete wipers,the shifter needs put back together & reinstalled on the car with a new inner shifter ball part #046F6113 & a pair of shifter bushings part # 046F6153 from Sports Car World, headliner redone (material included),the center console is included but needs reinstalled , the axle seals are leaking going into the trans & the air breather is gone!! The car has 2 gas tank caps but only 1 tank on the drivers side! The rear trunk tray is included ! The S-2 badges are in the glove box. This car has sat outside only for 2 weeks in the last 24 years.(which is now) It should run fine with the right preparation but there are NO GUARANTEES.

      • 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.

        • This car was first owned by a Washington DC Lotus Dealer and was then sold to an Arizona based owner. Early in its life it was painted red, it was yellow. The car remained dry in Arizona from the late 1970s till when it was sold to a Los Angeles based owner in the mid 1990s. The car needed a lot of work, the electricals were a mess, the car had in effect two electrical systems. The interior needed a lot of work, the dash was awful. Jaan Hjorth in Berkeley did a lot of the work on the car, photos of his work can be seen on Eddinsmoto.com. The car was exported to Sydney Australia where it was used as a daily driver for several years. The car was then sold to an Adelaide based car enthusiast.

      • I purchase the car about year and half ago. It was owned by father/son who fixed up Europas and sold them to Japanese buyers in the 90's. This car was leftover from that and was stored in South Carolina for 6-7 years prior to me purchasing it. The car may be a genuine Else given the dual tanks and engine performance parts. I've sorted out the brakes and shift linkage and have fired up the motor. I still need to sort out some of the wiring to make it road worthy but its close!

      • I bought this car from a co-worker's father who drove it to work every day for years until his eyesight failed him. It was parked in their garage in 1992. I had it moved to my home in New Albany, Ohio. I would have never found or purchased this vehicle unless for Brian Engelbach. Who explained everything about the Europa's and is the owner of S2 of his own.
      • PO: Mr. Arden Engelbach, Clintonville, Ohio - 10/11/11
        • 98,500 miles when purchased.
        • Interior was okay, needed a lot of work on the front end. It was home for many mice and the occasional raccoon over the years setting idle. The Ohio winters were harsh on the S2. The front of the A-arm boxes were 50% rusted out and had to be ground and new metal welded in place for ridgety.
        • Exterior paint is good at 20 feet and 20 mph.
      • Projects:
        • Re-welded the entire front end and sealed with KBS.
        • Installed new old stock Koni front shocks with 10" 140 lb/in springs that came with the car. This brought the front end down 1.75"
        • Re-wired and repaired wiring harness, replace all relays and brought it back to the Federal S2 electrical drawing (added inline fuses for added safety).
        • Rebuilt alternator and replaced voltage regulator.
        • Electric Fuel Pump.
        • Rebuilt the Weber DCOE 45 and cleaned the Hermes intake.
        • K&B air cleaner.
        • Re-routed the exhaust with a Thrush muffler.
        • Re-sleeved master cylinder along with new wheel cylinders and pads/shoes.
        • New tires.
        • Re-cored radiator w/ new otter switch.
        • There was no Crash Pad in the vehicle so I found a used/cracked one on ebay and am having it re-covered.
        • Currently working on making a new wood dash and relocating all switches to the area where the ash tray was located.

        • WINDSHIELD VEH. IDENT. NO 726R
      • The engine that was in the car is: 821-30 1285
      • The transmission did not have the round tag on it so I am not sure as to the transmission number.
      • This auto was painted black with gold strips. It probably looked real nice before the accident.
      • I bought this car from Brian Jump. I don’t think he titled it. The car was located in Marion, Indiana, which is where a friend and I picked it up and brought it back to Oshkosh, WI.

        • 60% complete. Totalled in a 1981 accident. Appears to have all necessary components to complete 0385R. Steel wheels, Renault engine & 4 speed transmission have been removed. Most suspension, axles and spindles are missing. Many parts (new & old) are in boxes with the car. Front end damage is extensive. Rear seems to be in good shape. Missing most emblems from previous customization. Appears to have been a JPS tribute/look-alike. Interior may be salvageable. Wrecked at 32039 miles.

      • Basically it is a body only that was cut in half thru the cockpit. I bought it on eBay from Rochester NY. It had none of the VIN # plates, so may have been a rebody donor. The ID is from the crayon marking on the center tunnel and the Dymo label tape molded in the lip edge of the engine opening.

      • I am honored, proud, and excited to announce that my Lotus Europa (0780R) will be joining the permanent collection of the Peterson Automotive Museum.
      • When I first offered the car to the curator of the Peterson Museum, Leslie Kendall, I thought "It's a long shot, but wouldn't it be great if it found a nice home where it can live out it's best days, taken care of by the best curators and mechanics in the automotive museum culture, and admired by visitors from around the world?" Imagine my surprise when, on visiting for the first time, Leslie came bounding through my living room, saw the car sticking out of the garage and shouted, "It's a Federal! I HAVE to have this car!" How could I say "No." after that?

The body is fiberglass and has original paint-what is left of it and never wrecked. The project also comes with a replacement frame as the origional has rust up front. This is a very complete car that needs total restoration.

      • From 7/2/06 ebay listing:
      • 21465 original miles. Stored for a lot of years. Stored outside for some of the time so the car is in need of restoring.
      • From 3/16/07 ebay listing:
        • I purchased this car from the second owner last year. He acquired this Lotus on 12/04/80. She has sat in a climate controlled garage for a decade. All of the body looks really good. She is an original clean title, accident free Lotus in need of a new dad. I was planning on turning this into a barely street legal weekend track car, but I just have too many projects. My race mechanic thought it would only take about $1,500 to put her back on the road. I think that number is far to low...
        • All data and VIN plates are present on the vehicle. Engine and transmission numbers match those found on the VIN plate, and they are presumed to be original.
        • This Europa has a near rust free frame and being un-modified makes it an excellent candidate for restoration. With the S2's clean lines and with the affordable Renault drive, a fun, easy to maintain, supper lightweight mid-engined sports car in the Chapman tradition makes for a great restoration project! The actual weight of this Europa is only 1,410lbs. I can't think of anything you could put on the road that comes close to that.
        • Interior needs new wood dash, dash cover, headliner and carpet. Brake hydraulics will need to be rebuilt, though the handbrake works. Fuel tank should be cleaned as a precautionary measure and the fuel pump will need to be rebuilt or replaced Rear wheel bearings and drive axles should be inspected and restored. Driver's door hinge needs repair and would likely benefit from the aftermarket stainless steel hinge pin kit.
        • Though mileage is low for the year, the title states that mileage is 'Not required'. It's been my experience that Europa's with high mileage are the exception to the rule.

      • As of 7/10/09 my wife and I became the owner of 823R we inherited it from a great uncle. I have always wanted a car to fix up (project) and this one fell into my lap so I jumped on it.
      • History. I know the car was bought used at performance car imports of New Castle Indiana. I think the car was parked in running condition in a barn in 1983. It hadnt moved or been started since I pulled it out on 7/10/09.
      • When I got it the engine was froze up and I have gotten it turning and it started a couple days ago and ran for about 1/2 a min (on starting fluid).
      • Things that need attention work.
        • 1. Fuel tank has holes and lots of sludge in it. Rust holes.
        • 2. Brake pedal is on the floor and doesnt move.
        • 3. Radiator is empty.
        • 4. It needs a little fiberglass repair it has cracks down both sails.
      • Overall I think its in pretty good shape drivers window works all other electronics work. Interior is good. Needs all new weather stripping. Needs new front windscreen its cracked right down the middle.
      • I plan on a rolling restoration I dont plan on it being a show car just a fun driver.

      • Car was frame striped and fully gone through everything. With only 34k miles and the interior completely weathered, we took the task to build a special edition, a resemblance of the type 47 and a aproach to a race car for driving in the street. We build a 3 piece aluminium dashboard, removable steering wheel, racer rear mirror, racing instrumentation and switching, 4 point seatbelts, and finished the interior with black leather, neuprene and yellow fabric. 4 Spaks in the corners, original engine with a Weber 45, high compression, grinded camshaft, oil cooler, ceramic headers, optic distribuitor trigger and more.

      • I'm Dan Rinker of Ocean Park, Washington. I won S-2 Europa 0847R on eBay early in August. It was advertised as "starts and drives" but did neither. Well, it starts, now. It was previously listed as VIN # 7101050847R and said to reside in LaHabra, California. Its original Renault powerplant was replaced, presumeably several years ago, at least 5, by a Mazda 12A rotary. Its original paint is gone, but it is still the original L05 Carnival Red, a great color for a great car. Its condition is bad, but quickly improving! I will try to shepherd this car through what it takes to get it operating -- I don't think that several previous owners were able to do this -- but for now understand that at the least a new wiring harness is desired if I want to finally connect instruments disconnected since at least 2007 sometime in the near future. Apparently some rear clip body work caused the harness to be severed in at least one area, and poorly thought out repairs have proven futile. After that, and the driver's door window motor doesn't work yet, all that the car needs is a new interior. All new interior! After that, I will impose a budget and slowly restore the car to new condition -- I want to get a R-16 engine back in it, hopefully with the Lotus modifications, but will probably enjoy the extra 20 hp. or so the 12A will provide, and decide the car is fine with a converted engine.

      • This 1971 LOTUS EUROPA S2 project car has had fire damage. It was previously fitted with a Twin Cam engine and it suffered a carburetor fire which destroyed some of the fiberglass. The frame had been modified to accomodate the Twin cam engine and this car is still fitted with a Twin Cam Type 352 Four speed transmission, (which has been rebuilt and safety wired), and bell housing to adapt to a Lotus Twin Cam engine. This car has a clear Florida title and was a former street / track car. It has a roll bar and many upgrades. The rear hubs had been modified to use readily available wheel bearings which are much larger than stock. It also has the larger rear wheel studs. The front suspension uses tubular wish bones with the uppers being adjustable. The car is fitted with SPAX shocks and a competition type sway bar. The interior is mostly complete. The car has a VDO electronic speedometer and an Autometer tachometer. It also has a clear, unbroken windshield. This project car could repaired or used for parts.

      • PO: Tim King - Reno, Nevada
        • Purchased in 2002 from Wilson Motor Co. as a ‘rolling basket case’ with an 807 engine and 5-speed.
        • Formerly owned by Peter M. Gray of Gig Harbor, WA.
        • After a complete frame-off rebuild, I’m close to returning it to the street, with only engine parts challenges remaining. With experience racing an SCCA EP/DP Europa S2 in the late ‘70s in SF Region, I decided to build a lightened/enhanced/updated S2 incorporating aerodynamic down-force. The car weighs 1,200 lbs by replacing/simplifying the wiring, interior, dash and other components. Upgraded the wheels/tires to 15” dia. using wheel spacers and modest fender flares. It’s turned out quite well. Photos reflect ‘work in progress’.

      • SCCA E/P prepared racecar. I don't have much details about the car as I have only had it a couple of months. From the fabrication notes I have it appears to have been built by Steve Harris. Accordiing to the log book it only completed half dozen or so races . It sports full NASCAR type cage making it very difficult for my 195 lb 5'11" frame to ingress and egress, but it does feel cozy once you wear it. Future plans for the car include auto-x, hillclimb and a possible vintage race or two. All depends how much longer I continue to road race my DSR. Other previous owners over the years include, Gary Stock, Les Bryant and Ken Burt. I bought it from Wire Wheel Classics. I am Also in process of rebuilding my Twin Cam Special which I have had since new in 73.

      • I bought it this year in Scottsdale, Az. Although I live in Wisconsin, the Lotus is at my son's house in Arizona. So far we have cleaned it up some, as it was in storage for quite some time. The paint isn't as good as it looks in the pictures, but with some buffing it will be o.k. for a driver The engine is free, but we haven't run it. The dash needs the normal attention. Overall it seems like a solid car. It's quite the conversation piece sitting in the garage!
      • We haven't decided if we are going to restore it or sell it. But every once and a while it receives a little more cleaning....and hopefully we will get around to getting the engine running soon.

      • I've redone the dash, installed a new radiator, rebuilt the heater, and have taken one door off. The other will come off the same way: cut the hinge pin in the center then cut it between the door and sill and door and body with a reciprocating saw. A new windshield awaits the installation of the new dash and dash pad. The dash awaits the full reconditioning of the electrical system. The carpet and pad is here, but it awaits the repair to the interior fiberglass under and around the base of the door sills on the inside. Seat boxes have been repaired and one seat is now upholstered and they await the installation of carpet. Headliner has been replaced and visors are being rebuilt. The backlight is out and the gas overflow tank is missing. Coolant overflow tank has been bought but not yet installed. Much left to do.

      • Basket case. This europa was part of a storage unit sale. It looks like someone planned to make a racer out of it. No engine or transaxle. Does have rear axles. Steering assembly appears to work. (When I turn the steering wheel the front assembly works). A steel roll cage has been installed. Has a fuel cell in the passenger area. No rear window. I have both doors, (altered to fit the roll cage). This car will need MAJOR bodywork (you can see daylight through the body panels in numerous locations). No rims or tires. Car is on a rolling platform that may go with the car for ease of loading. Loading is the buyers responsibility. I will help load the car. Mileage is unknown as the original dash is gone and a custom p.o.s. metal box is fitted.

      • Purchased from Jeff Mills 01/05 ( Arizona car) . Car had been sitting for a couple of years before I bought it. The Solex throttle shafts and front caliper pistons were frozen. Both problems fixed. Replaced the front calipers with Wilwoods and the stock Solex with Webers. The car is streetable now. The paint is rough and the interior is OK.

      • The car has sat for several years and the complete nature of the car will make this an exceptional car to make a banks replica or a restoration of this fine example. The car is a white exterior, black interior car with power windows. The car has a need for some glass replacement which is easy to come by. The car other than the glass issue is a very fine example. It was located in an area of the California dessert that receives less than 1/2 inch of rain a year. No rust issues for this car.

      • I took delivery of the car yesterday.
      • Although it's going to require a total frame off, from the ground up, nut and bolt restoration, I'm looking forward to it.
      • Luckily, a neighbor friend of mine has fiberglass and paint experience.
      • I have two options available.
      • One is to restore it to factory specs and the other is to customize it. I talked to the previous owner and he suggested restoring it to factory specs. I think I'll take his advice. I may, of course, change the wheels and do some custom work on the engine (change out the Weber and put a pair of side draft Strombergs on it), add an oil cooler, and walnut the dash. Other than that, it'll be "Factory".

      • I picked up a parts Europa in Oklahoma a year or so ago. Car was a mess, major parts missing, but the mice and mud wasps liked it. Sold the body to a guy building a racer on a spyder chassis. Still have the frame and motor and front suspension. Here are a few pics.

      • Needs (the Bad):
        • If car sits for 3+ weeks, oil pump seems to lose its prime. Thick Oil Treatment additive and synthetic oil has helped. Car is started and brought up to 2,000 RPM quickly to bring up oil pressure fast. Once running, pressure is fine.
        • Needs repaint as original white color is showing in many spots
        • Normal amount of stress cracks in fiberglass
        • Interior needs carpet and dash needs new veneer
        • Front radiator hoses should to be replaced, coolant tubes are OK.
      • Overall car is pretty reliable. It gets a ton of looks and is fun to drive.

      • 1280R spent it's existence in the Minneapolis, MN area.
      • I bought 1280R in the spring of 1975. I built a custom, short throw shifter for it, built a custom Holley-Weber 5200/5210 carb (Pinto body/ Vega top/ re-jetted/ hot water auto choke), lowered the front suspension, installed adjustable SPAX shocks and mounted 185/60 tires... other than that, it was mechanically stock and original. I don't recall the mileage on the clock at either the time of purchase or sale, but I put approximately 180,000 miles on 1280R in the ten years I owned it.
      • I sold it to Bob Evans late in Nov, 1985. He had it stripped and beautifully repainted Porsche Guard's Red, and drove it for a few years. Failing health forced him to sell the car, and the new owner intended to convert it to a racer. Unfortunately, sometime in the mid-1990's, the race shop it was in burned to the ground, taking the Europa and several other Lotus with it.
      • 1280R is no more.
