Lotus Elan

Historic Factory Photos

PostPost by: khamai » Wed Dec 08, 2004 6:12 pm

New on the GGLC website -

I just posted original Lotus PR photos that show the process of manufacturing an Elan S1 body. The photos are courtesy of Mike Ostrov's Historic Lotus Collection.

It's fascinating to see how the body was molded (moulded for those in the UK). You can see why our doors NEVER fit properly!


Then click on "Tech" to go to the Technical section and then "Elan/+2" and then to last article listed.
