Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this early and desirable Lotus Esprit. This car was recently purchased off a New York dealer who acquired it from the widow of the believed original owner. This car appears to have been originally painted red, under the current black exterior paint. The interior trim looks largely original.The car runs off of a can of fuel (video coming soon). The bumpers have been deleted front and back, with some slight body modifications.The body on this car is quite good with nice aligning panels. There is some very minor repair needed towards the front/middle of the driver's door. The rest of the car looks pretty good. The black paintwork is older and is showing some chips/ general aging, but looks decent from 10 feet. The car needs a windshield replacement.The interior looks 100% and highly original, and is in quite decent order throughout, needing at least a headliner re-glue. The upwards or top facing vinyl areas have faded a bit, but everything still appears soft and supple, as it has been stored indoors.The underchassis shows some normal surface rust on some components. It's definitely clean and looks low mileage, especially up front with all of the undamaged fiberglass parts.The car still retains it's original 5 desirable Wolfrace alloy wheels, along with the mint original Dunlop spare tire, jack, handle, lug wrench in bag. The engine runs nicely on an exterior fuel feed. I'm sure it's going to need it's brakes and fuel system serviced before it's roadworthy, being in storage all of this time.Overall, a desirable and scarce Series One Esprit with believed very low mileage/few owners. After some general improvements, this car would look fantastic back in it's original colors, with it's crisp and attractive styling. These early Lotuses are becoming more desirable as of late, with their very low production numbers.
