I think I will regret this in a few months time but here goes:

1973 Lotus Elan +2 130/5 for sale.

A superb usable example. Extensively restored in the 1990s, this Elan +2 has been owned by myself since 1996 and has been driven in good weather conditions only. The car has been maintained regardless of cost and is mechanically very sound. Finished in blue with cream interior, the car is in generally good condition, with excellent mechanicals, and offered with lots of supporting paper work, current MoT/tax and V5C registration document and includes the nice (surprisingly valuable original 5 digit number plate)

Paint work is not perfect but very presentable with practically no crazing and would benefit from a good polish and maybe a new top coat in a few years time.

Lagoon blue with silver roof, the car has a Lotus Galvanized Chassis and TT style drive shafts specially made so the fail safe studs are retained in case anyone starts making good donuts again. The original drive shafts will be included in the sale.

The has a 5 speed Lotus gearbox and Big valve engine both rebuilt to Lotus final revision standards about 10,000 miles ago. The engine does have lead free valves etc fitted so you can use standard unleaded petrol.
I have posted a video and pictures on the car on youtube see http://youtu.be/9WRDq8nJRHE
The car is base near junction 4 on the M40 in UK
Telephone: SOLD

My first plus 2! I often wondered what happened to it. I sold it about 1983/4 for significantly less than its on offer for now! As soon as I sold it I regretted it and vowed to get another plus 2 one day.
I did -and have had my current plus 2 for 20 years now. It's also Lagoon blue.
Good luck with the sale and I hope who ever buys it looks after it!!

Kind regards
Jeff 72+2.
