Lotus Elan S3 Coupe. This 1966 baby Elan was rescued and suffered the indignity of a total rebuild between 2002 and 2008.

Everything was either replaced with new (chassis, discs, calipers, rack, all bushes, shock absorbers, radiator, vacuum tanks) or fully renovated (engine, gearbox, diff, heater, lights, tank etc).

There are a few sensible improvements include a stainless steel exhaust, leather interior, rear cage and side bars, seat belts, alternator and Japanese starter motor. Since the rebuild it has covered less than 4000 summer miles and is kept indoors.

I have tons of invoices, all MOTs and a photographic DVD record of the rebuild.

It is very reliable and whilst not a concourse car, is very tidy and much admired.
It gets very little use so it is time for it to go,

It is valued at ?14K for insurance and will ship the car anywhere.

Photos of the car and the rebuild plus contact details are available at: http://www.geoffreiss.com/geoffreiss/Main/LotusElan.htm
