eBay watch: 1976 Lotus Eclat car


Can you imagine the looks you'll get when you drive this 1976 Lotus Eclat car onto the supermarket or work car park? They'll be looks of jealousy, that's for sure.

1970s British excess, this Eclat dates back to 1976 and is said to have 8.751 on the clock – but you might want to check that first. It's also been in the receiving end of a massive restoration over the past year according to the seller, everything from a replacement period interior and professionally fitted carpets through to an engine overhaul and new tyres. See the listing for all the work, it is extensive (too extensive for us to list here).


It's still an ongoing job, with some work required to bring it to its best, not least with the lights and windscreen. But it does run, even if it doesn't have MOT or tax (due to being off road for the work).

If you want to take it on, this Lotus Eclat is on the market as a 'Buy It Now' for £2,200. Lots more images on the listing, especially of that interior.
