Lotus Elan

Used Parts Dealers

PostPost by: JonnyPlus2 » Wed Feb 08, 2012 2:13 am

Hi All,
I'm looking for an oddball part on my S3 Elan couple (the ally vent grill on the LH side 'B' pillar) and I think that I'm going to have to pay dealer's prices.

The only person that I know of who keeps used parts in stock is Mrs. Miller but she doesn't have one. If you know of a dealer that keep used parts, please add their name to this thread. Thanks.

Best,
Desperate in Ontario, Canada.

I have a vague memory that this part was sourced from another British car of the era, where it was located in front of the windscreen as a heater inlet....but can't for the life of me remember what the source car was....

Try Arno at www.caterham.nl email [email protected]
He has helped me in the past find an old bench seat for my Caterham. He has a lot of obscure Lotus spares.
I do know he is not back until the 13th as I am after a couple of bits but he is answering emails at the moment

The alloy airflow vent grille on an S3 is not the same as the later Sprint/ +2 grille. It is much more stylish! and (i believe) unique to the Elan. It sounds like Bluesbrother30 has the correct items though.

Hi All,
After calling a bunch o' dealers in the UK and getting the story on the early S3 Airflow vents (very hard to find, expen$ive) I contacted Mike and acquired his (off a coupe that is now a roadster ?).

Thanks for all your help.

Regards,
