Vehicle Description

1974 Lotus Europa Twin Cam 68k Original Miles - Twin Cam 1.6L Inline4 - Lotus Yellow - Highly Original - We're excited to offer this Lotus for your consideration. It's a highly original, uniquely shaped, nimble, driver's car that is sure to put a smile on your face. You'll be looking for curvy roads to carve up with this little car. The shape of the Europa always evokes mixed feelings - a low sleek front with sugar-scoop headlights and a boxy rear end with simple tail lights. The very low 42 roofline is surprising and not expected if you've never been around a Europa in person. This particular Europa is highly original and is finished in the original color of Lotus Yellow. The condition of the paint is a hint of the age of the car, although it is original the paint does show some cracking and fading. Inside the car is a simple interior that is definitely laid out for a driver's car, there are no distractions. Simple, leather bucket seats are comfortable and in great condition. Wood grain dashboard with a simple grouping of gauges also features an upgraded Pioneer stereo, and a short throw shifter caps off the interior. Right behind the driver and passenger seats is the 1.6L Twin Cam Inline-4 which is mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Twin Stromberg carburetors provide an awesome soundtrack as the engine breathes, sending you down the road with confidence. A 1.6L inline 4 doesn't sound like much of an engine for a sports car, but since this car comes in at under 2,000 pounds this little car is nimble and quick. Thanks to the backbone/frame the car eats up corners and twisty roads, and once comfortable with the car, you will search out curvy roads. According to our research, this Lotus left the Factory the 18th of March 1974, and made the journey over the pond to the distributor Lotus East in Millerton New York. This unique little sports car from the other side of the pond offers a lightweight fiberglass body, mid engine-rear drive setup, and a simple interior. It is highly original right down to the Lotus Yellow paint. A Lotus like this is most definitely a car to consider adding to your collection, especially if you appreciate British sports cars.
