Lotus Elan

Trying to find an Elan from my past

When I was a student in the early 70s I worked weekends in a pub in Bray, Co Wicklow, Ireland. At busy times the owner would ask me to work late and then drive me home after the last bus had gone. He had a blue 1969/1970 Lotus Elan S3 FHC, and I loved my trips home in it. I got my own 1967 Elan in 1974.
I am trying to trace my ex-employer's car. It was registered JEI 329 in Ireland. He traded the car in for a Lancia in the 70s, and the rumour is that the dealer exported it to the UK. Does anybody on this forum know of or even own this car?

Unlikely to have been an S3 in '69/70. Mine is one of the last 500 S3's and is registered 3/5/1968. S4 Elan's came into production later in 1968.
Current :- Elan S3 DHC SE S/S 1968,
1963 Alfa Giulia Ti Super Rep.
Previous :-
Elan S3 DHC SE SS 1968,
Elan S3 DHC S/E 1966
Elan S3 FHC Pre-Airflow 1966
