Lotus Elan

TT Alloy Radiator

Dear all,

I installed a Tony Thompson aluminum radiator and swirlpot some years back.
This sits forward of the original location, on top of the steering rack. A
picture of my Elan's engine bay is still posted at the Manila Sports Car
Club website (which fortunately has not been updated for some years) and
shows the radiator clearly.

Warm regards,

If you have difficulty accessing the picture, just log on to the MSCC
website and click on the "Featured Sports Car."


Best regards,

A beautiful Elan, even though it is not stock. I noticed that you
appear to have hood pins and a tow hook added. Do you have any close-
up photographs of how those were attached? A very pretty car!
