Factory Parts Lists

Has there ever been an attempt to catalogue the various parts list editions for the Elan and +2? I checked the archive and came up empty. I ask in part because a recent exchange with Paddy showed that there were at least three editions (the two I have, and his), and differences between them.

If this topic has been covered, please provide a link. If not, perhaps we could start it here. My oldest parts list appears to cover only the S1 and perhaps S2 (it doesn't depict the lights on the rear panel, tho it gives the Lucas part numbers, and has the "can-type" exhaust down pipe, which I thought was only on the S1). It was published while the factory was still at Cheshunt. This is the cover:

I'll post the cover of my later list if there's any interest.

I am the original owner of a 1965 Elan S2 (26/4618). It had the "can type" downpipe from the factory.

I have 26/0538- purchased from the factory in '63 and shipped to Canada before there were any dealers in north America. A couple of months down the road (when they were printed ) I received my parts manual #000523 (stamped inside front cover) - I note that the section "electical components" has minimal description of rear stop / tail light assembly.


The origional workshop manual - mine is #691 - in section L page 31 - gives full pictorial / Lucas detail of the tail / side lights.

If you need any further info - let me know.
Keep your stick on the ice!
