eBay watch: 1970s Lotus Elite 504 Automatic car

Lotus1

Head-turning car? That's definitely the case with this 1970s Lotus Elite 504 Automatic, which is up for sale right now – and still at a fairly modest price.


It dated back to 1978 and really does scream that era. This is a car that gets you noticed, that's for sure. The seller says that it runs via a two litre twin cam engine and has 69,000 on the clock. There's also an MOT until the end of November.

Check the listing for a catalogue of work that's been done by the current and previous owner (there's too much to list here), but it has been in dry storage and needs 'a couple of jobs' to get it up to scratch. Talking of scratches, there's one on the bonnet, but overall, the bodywork is described as being 'very good'. The full leather trim is also said to be in 'very good condition'.

Lots of images on the listing and delivery is available too, should you want it dropping off. As for the price, that's £800 right now.
