Cool Elite 75 (1975) restoration, now on the road!

Hi everyone

I've bought this 1975 Lotus Elite 75. It was a 504 model (AC and Auto box), the Auto box has been replaced by a manual. Gone through several repairs now (handbrake, power steering etc.) and is now on the road! Will post more pictures soon

The car has been imported from UK to the Netherlands, then to German and now to me in Switzerland. It is now technically sound, but the exterior has blister, scratches and bubbles here and there. But then, it's a 41 years old car, and a (good) respray is very expensive and not easy. People I know who did a cheap respray usually regret...

All details about the car on http://www.lotus-elite.info This website will be updated from time to time in order to save as much information as possible about these cars, as there is not much to find in the internet.

Interesting - I've found the following marks in the dealership booklet. It looks like the car has been to the USA at some stage!

Nice looking car! But then I'm biased as my 77 is the same color. I'm hoping to get mine on the road pretty soon.

Good luck with it and keep us posted on your progress
