This included a complete disassembly and full rebuild still with original wishbone frame, complete body restoration, all suspension, engine, and gearbox. Rebuilt brakes, instruments and more. The car was shipped back to California and meticulously cared for. Garage kept amidst a nice Lotus collection.
