Description for Lotus Other 1980

1984 Caterham Super Seven
Car was originally purchased back in 1984 as a Caterham kit. It was built and titled as a 1984 Caterham Sprint, VIN number on title is NCS95929 and mileage is unknown since odometer does not work. Currently has a clean and clear SC title stating it is a 1984 Caterham Sprint. I have owned this car since 2013. Chassis has Arch motors number AM84596. Clam-shell fenders were replaced with motorcycle fenders. Great car even fits tall people (I'm 6'4'').
Pertronix distributor with new spark plug wires, aluminum differential nose, new aluminum radiator with electric fan, aluminum fuel tank, electric fuel pump, battery disconnect switch, battery about 3-4 years old, high torque starter, dual brake master cylinders with balance bar, "Revolution" wheels with a spare wheel on back with strap, dual Weber DCOE 40 carbs, seats have been recently recovered, close ratio gearbox. I also have a roll bar which I can include with the car, I personally believe it looks better without it. Has mounting provisions for shoulder harness seat belts, currently only has lap belts. Compression test has been done on engine and all cylinders have equal and strong readings at about 200 PSI. Engine does not burn any oil. Car is right hand drive.
Well cared for, regular oil changes (engine, transmission, differential), bleed brakes and clutch. Runs and drives good, car does show some age and the aluminum has some scratches. Paint also has some cracks in it. Windshield wiper motor is in car but is not hooked up. Odometer does not work, the odometer gear was taken out of transmission and replaced with a plug due to leaking problem from it. Horn, headlights, taillights, turn signals, all work. Frame and body work look in great shape no signs of ever being in and accidents. Transmission shifts smooth, engine runs strong. Great handling and lightweight!
