Lotus Elan

THE list

PostPost by: snowyelan » Fri Jun 14, 2013 1:16 am

Hi All
I know I have seen it before but after an hour of searching I am at a loss. Does anyone have THE LIST? I tried the Sportscar World links but they aren't working. I am looking for info on my elan, 45/9011, specifically if it was originally delivered to Canada. Any help would be appreciated. I can be contacted at scottlongatlivedotca if you would prefer not to post....

Thanks
Scott

If you mean what I think you mean, a search under Elanregistry.org should find it.

Yes - That link doesn't work.

I can't find my copy but I'm sure someone will be in contact.

If not you can get the details and a certificate from Lotus

Hi AHM, that wasn't a link as such, it was just what i thought would be an easy way to google it.

This isn't a 'link' either but the full address is

http://www.elanregistry.org/list_cars.php


It works for me. Ken

Scott

According to the records 45/9011 was built or invoiced on 5th July 1969 with engine no L18873. The L prefix indicates a SE Stromberg Domestic engine, normally fitted to a RHD UK Elan.

If your car is LHD then the engine prefix would usually be G. The record may be wrong, of course! Andy Graham at Lotus may have additional information.

Thanks Tim and Ken,
The stromberg se matches, the rhd not so much, I haven't found any evidence of a conversion. I wonder if the engine was listed as a domestic as it doesn't have the emissions carbs or crossover setup that would have gone to the US? iirc the carbs are CD2S, not the CD2SE as fitted for emissions. The elan registry list me as the current owner, I had forgotten about registering back in 04.
