If anyone is interested..

I have decided to sell my 67 Elan S3.

Car has modified cam, DCOE 40's, exhaust header, limited slip rear end, CV
joints, and new rear struts. Rebuilt brakes including pistons and
hydraulics, rebuilt clutch hydraulics. New wheel bearings on all four
corners. Kenlowe cooling fan. New battery. Facet Electric Fuel pump,
Piranha electronic ignition, new Lucas Sport Coil and plug wires.

Odometer reads about 43K miles

This is the same car pictured in Ray Psulkowski's book - Lotus the Elan,
Cortina and Europa. Pages 25,26,27,28,30.

Car is in good condition. The only thing that is sporadic is the
heater/defroster fan.

Car comes bundled with -

Spare NEW Spyder Frame with wishbones Front and rear and mounts.

Spare Elan transmission of unknown condition.

Zetec 2.0 engine 2000 miles from new with NEW 45 DCOE's and intake manifold,
lightened flywheel and regular flywheel.

T5 5 speed transmission and belhousing to mate to a 2.3 Ford engine.

A few spare differentials in various states.

Rebuilt, never installed, spare drive shaft with new U-joints.

Spare Elan radiator.

Spare positive earth alternator (to replace generator when I got motivated)

Spare negative earth tachometer (to replace the positive earth one when the
Zetec went in)

Off the car - Original K/O wheels that have been widened with tires mounted
and K/O hubs and spinners included.

Car just passed Delaware inspection about two weeks ago. I drive the car on
a fairly regular basis.

Pictures can be seen at the Europa.com site @

Total for the entire lot is $14,650.

Please contact me off list with any questions or interest. I am not
currently interested in parting the pieces out.

I am very flexible on removal timing, no pressures pushing it out.
