Lotus Elan

Elan Sprint Poster

PostPost by: silverlink » Sun Dec 22, 2019 2:18 pm

Whilst tidying up in one of my cupboards I came across the attached Elan Sprint poster which I'd forgot I had!!!
It measures 30" x 20" and is brand new, I got it when I visited the Lotus factory for a guided tour in around 1975 with my wife to be. The poster is one that would have been used by Lotus garages to advertise the new Elan Sprint in the early 70's.
Has anyone any idea on its value?

I sent you an offer on FB, I've never seen one before, gorgeous!

p.s. Wonder if we could reproduce these?

Hi Phil,
I don't do facebook it was my wife who put it up, I think you're reading my mind as I had the same though about getting copies done. Would it infringe any copyright laws if I was to do it even if it was nearly fifty years since the poster was first done.

I have a copy of that on my wall signed by Ron Hickman. At a Club Lotus gathering at Donnington sometime around 2000 someone had a small batch signed by Ron and was selling them.

I believe it was Elan Fan on this site who sold the poster at Donnington.
