That’ll Buff Out: 1970 Lotus Europa

The Europa was a sporty two seater built by Colin Chapman’s Lotus Cars in Norfolk, UK. Only 9300 of these high-butted gems were built between 1966-1975 and in today’s world of overpriced junk (see Porsche 912 or 914 prices…ahem) the Europa is still surprisingly affordable, especially when they’ve got a smashed up front end. Anyway, how expensive can fiberglass repair be? Find this 1970 Lotus Europa offered for $10,000 in Lebanon, OH via spacesmash baconbook. Tip from Dave.
