Lotus Elan

Question about chassis #'s

PostPost by: cal44 » Sun Feb 19, 2012 11:04 pm

Is there a way too tell if an Elan came from the factory as a fixed head coupe?

Vin or unit # is 68 36/8016

also

G/16155/B

Regards,
Mike

36 means Coupe, if it were 45 it would be convertible.

Your Elan left the factory as a FHC (36), unit no 8016, with a Stromberg fitted Federal engine (G), no 16155 on an unspecified date in approx Jun/Jul 1968

Still learning. Thank you my friends. I do have some books on the way.
