Lotus Elan

May be a good value runner Plus 2

Talked to the garage owner about this today - he is not an expert!

Could be a good car for someone - lots of bills for Spyder chassis and running gear plus older engine and gearbox rebuild and cooling upgrades. Some paint cracks in 2-3 places from an older paint job but, as a good runner, may be worth a look.

Interesting, there are S badges on it and the fog light recesses on the front suggest an S, but the dash board suggests pre-S. I think G reg spanned the change over to S so could be either. Anyway, looks nice. Dave

Cylinder head is not original one either as its a type one "half moon" head from a pre 66 engine
