1973 Lotus Europa Special Description

I bought this car off ebay a few months ago, having never driven one. First, the car is almost perfect and original. It has a small exhaust leak at the gasket I think and the engine decklid has been repainted at some point, but outside of that, the car is as-new. The reason I'm selling it so soon is the size. I'm 6' tall and it's simply too small for me to drive comfortably. I wish I could keep it as I've never seen another one so original but I simply can't own a car I can't drive. You won't be disappointed. It's an all original California car, garage kept and in excellent looking and driving condition. You are welcome to inspect the car before the end of the auction or have someone else inspect it. There are companies like WeGoLook that will have inspectors check out a car for you. This is a stunning example of a Europa and anyone would be proud to have this in their collection (as long as you aren't too tall). Here is the text from the original auction:
it is a 1973 Europa Special, with the Big Valve Twin Can motor....4 speed, with the 352 gearbox
Interior is pristine it looks new but has never been restored is absolutely immaculate no ripstears or cracks and everything works all lights gauges and heating works perfectly
The paint is in excellent condition it is the original Colorado orange and has not beenrepainted with the exception of the rear deck lid otherwise there has been no body work done to this car there is no chipping anywhere on the car and the original pinstriping that was taped on from the factory is still intact and in good condition all of the chrome and stainless are beautiful. I have the original spare with the tools and rear package tray is in great condition.
