Lotus Elan

Elan S/E owners........

PostPost by: Team Lotus » Thu Oct 15, 2020 4:39 pm

When I started at Lotus back in late 68 one of my ‘important’ jobs (I was 16) was fixing the QR Assured sticker to the front windscreen and the ‘Lotus Special Equipment’ to the rear screen. Over the years I’d never seen another S/E sticker so when I met up with Graham Arnold a number of years ago he said he could remember them, and ‘we’ should get some printed......
I never bothered and put the one I had on my Elise. So searching through the loft I came across another one and I’m now in the process of getting a small amount made......as yet I don’t have a price, but if you want your Elan S/E to look correct let me know........
Also if you remember the Fly Lotus campaign, might get some of those too......

I guess these wouldn't be right for an S3?

Neat stuff! Do you have a picture of the 'QR Assured' sticker? Would they have been afixed to
cars going places other than UK?

I've seen an original one on a Mk1 Lotus Cortina Rob, so the S3 should be spot-on.
