LOTUS EXCEL 2.2 SE 1989 G Reg 1989 (1989)




This is a lovely example and is a very useable classic car. I have had much work done in the past 6 / 8 months by various motoring trades people which has all been documented and this is the end result.The car has had just 4 previous owners, the last owner for nearly 6 years. It has original hand book pack, stamped service book, past MoTs and a folder of bills and receipts. The recent spend on the car to bring it up to its present condition is in excess of £3,000 which is also documented in its history folder.An outline of recent work carried below;Timing belt replacementComplete exterior re paintNew head liningEngine serviceFront brake replacementAnd there is much more. For aesthetic purposes this car has not been 'restored' to an over the top 'tarts hand bag' spec, it has been refinished, where possible to manufacture spec and just enough to leave a lot of originality behind. Such as carpets and seats, they are very good and in line with the age of the car so we've left them like that so the car keeps some of its period feel. We have concentrated on areas where people probably wouldn't want to get involved such as cam belt etc.The wheels are the originals, have not been restored and are in superb condition.I've done around 3,000 miles in the car in the past 6 months. This was my 'to be kept in the garage toy' and used for and weekends. And in my garage it was kept. Unfortunately for me our family bus is a Range Rover (very unfortunate I hear you say)so in true Range Rover style that spends about every 3 weeks out of 4 in one garage or another, in this period the Lotus steps up to be the family bus, hence the mileage I have done in it. That said I have absolutely enjoyed every mile, it has not let me down in any way once. On the other side it is quite happy to be left in the garage for 2 to 3 weeks at a time then brought out and used, no jump starting required, nothing just pull choke out, turn key and go.
