2nd owner since new. Car was purchased 20 years ago and has been basically had most
items on the car either replaced or rebuilt over the past 20 years. New front and rear suspension. All new hardware for same.
Interior is beautiful. Everything has been cleaned and/or painted. Engine is strong. Stainless or Aluminum Gas Tank. (don't know)
Only know issues with car are that the rear tranny seal needs to be replaced ( a very simple "in car" job).
And the front crosss member does not hold air for the headlights. A air resovoir has been added in the nose to compensate.
I have looked at the chassis and see no evidence of rust or corrosion. Most of the chassis has been painted with POR-15.
Engine compartment is very clean as is the boot and the rest of the car. Paint is 20 years old and if very nice.
Dash is like new. Carpets are new. Car has been cared for and loved by a Lotus nut. One of our LOONYs.
Pictures can be seen at www.lotusowners.com Link on right. Yellow Elan.
