Don’t hate the game, hate the play-a!
I don’t hate either actually. John Player Special colors are a fave of mine and you can’t beat them on a Europa.
On eBay in Nevada, Texas with reserved bidding starting at $200.
“You are bidding on a 1974 Lotus Europa TCS. JPS black and gold colors with oatmeal interior. The car is in excellent condition, runs and starts easily. 5 yr old mechanical and cosmetic restoration. All new leather interior, rebuilt carbs, brakes, new tires at that time. Drives and handles correctly. Very minor imperfections here and there in the paint, no cracking anywhere of the fiberglass. Interior is beautiful. Original steering wheel has been replaced with smaller wheel, passenger door mirror needs new glass, radio antennae is not fitted. Original wheel, replacement mirror and antennae are included along with many spare and original parts such as original emissions equipment, shocks, spare window regulator and many other parts. Also included is a custom indoor flannel car cover along with the parts and service manuals. This is one of the best examples of this car I have seen. I have owned it for over 4 years and have had to do nothing to it, the previous owner did the original restoration. This 74 model was built late in the 74 model year and as such has the desirable gas struts for the engine cover. This was the best of all the Europas built, with the big valve TC engine, 5 speed, and best of all JPS colors. The previous owner added the JPS decals on the side of the B pillars, they were not original to the car. This car is very original. Most original parts that were removed or replaced, have been kept and are included in the sale. If you have any questions about the car, please let me know.”
