1973 Lotus Europa Special SPECIAL, TWIN CAM, BIG VALVE, 5-SPEED1973 LOTUS EUROPA SPECIAL. TWIN CAM, BIG VALVE, 5-SPEED, ALLOYS, FACTORY BLACK CAR. HEATER, A/C. HIGHLY OPTIONED, DESIRABLE CAR NEEDING STRAIGHTFORWARD RESTORATION.Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this desirable and highly optioned Twin Cam Europa 5-Speed. This car was recently purchased from it's long term owner who had the car in storage for quite a few years. It is currently painted red but appears to have been originally a rare and desirable black/black car from the factory. It is very well fitted with most likely a dealer-installed heating and air conditioning system, quite unique for these cars, and definitely the only one we have seen. The car is in overall decent and original condition needing a restoration.The engine is currently not running but turns over when the car is pushed in gear. I'm sure it will need at least a brake and fuel system service to get the car roadworthy.The car's fiberglass body could use a few repairs (especially on the engine lid), but is in very good overall condition for it's age. There is some typical door hinge sag, very common to these cars, more so on the driver's side than the passengers.The glass appears all original Triplex except a replaced windshield, which is in good condition.The car's underside looks normal and very decent for the age of the car.The car's interior is very original and in decent shape, with the seats and dash top pad redone at one point. The dashboard facia/steering components are mounted/attached loosely. The car has the original rare shift knob and steering wheel.The car includes some tools and the owners handbook.Overall, a great car to restore with the top specifications/colors for a Lotus Europa. Very well priced for the restorer.
