For Sale

1969 Lotus Elan plus 2S

Reluctantly it?s time to sell my project Elan

Car is in process of being rebuilt but due to family commitments I have run out of time to complete

Many of the spares are genuine Lotus or OEM, many now obsolete

This car is an ideal project or Zetec conversion with cash back

new boot hinges
new genuine bonnet stay and complete new genuine bonnet latch mech
new badges front and rear
new driving/spot lights
front lights all new parts
new fitted side sills (spyder) inc closing plates
all glass present inc seals

Interior
trim is complete and includes
New walnut dash
New seat belts
New correct headlining kit (proper sewn kit from Susan Miller not cheap headling material)
all gauges are present

Brakes

automec brake line kit

new tubular front wishbones top and bottom
new genuine trunnions
new TTR adjustable dampers and springs

rear suspension is complete
new bushes all round

Engine
complete engine inc dcoe31 webers

Gearbox
good correct gearbox

Electrics
new light pods
new!! maserati air horns kit (correct type with die cast bases to the horns not the ?sprint? type)
new air cleaner case
new relays
new under bonnet lights
new genuine under bonnet loom
new dash loom
new interior loom

wheels
5x steels

loads of other stuff that I can?t remember

Basically the car was dis assembled for the paint job and it was pointless putting it back together using the tatty parts so I gathered all the parts. I have built and restored an Elan S4SE and a 7 and also have a family and have realised that I just don?t have the time to finish the project.

You get to have an Elan project that requires assembly and Love (and still some money). All important paint is done.


Car is rolling and can be trailered (with loads of boxes in your boot)

You don't mention the state of the chassis in your post - does it have a new one? What colour is it (the bodywork, that is!)? Is the main "job" the reassembly, or is there anything major that needs reforbishing?

Sounds like a great meccano project, though!
