Lotus Elan

Early S1 Elan - body restoration almost finished

PostPost by: dunclentdr1 » Thu Nov 26, 2020 5:14 pm

If anyone needs a recommendation of a fantastic UK body restorer and painter give me a shout.

Here is the late 1963 built Elan with original interior coming to the end of body restoration and paint in original carmen Red.

For the geeks out there (I'm one) spot the Weber 40DCOE2 carbs.

For sale when finished and hopefully a lovely car for someone.

Beautiful detail and presentation of a very period looking color combination. Also really like the look of bolt on wheels without hub covers.
