Lotus Elan

A friend in Oregon has passed me information regarding two Loti for sale by the widow of the owner:

Lotuses and Titan Mark V racer

1967 Lotus Elan twin cam etc. convertible: it's all there and fully restorable, but it's been parked for over 20 years and that shows. It has Colin Chapman's signature on the steering wheel.

1969 Lotus Europa: it's all there too, and fully restorable, but it has been parked for several years.

Formula Ford is a Titan Mark V open wheel racer: one of only 13 ever made. It's been in dry storage for years, and is in very good shape, considering age, etc. It?s all there.

I have one photo of each car but they are in a word document and I can't figure out how to append them to the post via the ipad. Email me at jentwistle3 @ aol . com and I will send you the word document.

I don't know either the seller or the contact and I never never seen any of the cars. All the usual disclaimers apply.

Anyone interested in Jags? She is trying to sell these four:

1987 XJ6 in great shape: burgundy colored; could use new paint for a few spots; odometer reads 137678.

1987 XJS: silver; it's been in dry and clean storage in a garage for a few years, simply because owners had too many cars. It has new tires, new battery, new head liner; odometer reads 115454.

1990 XJS: some surfaces need painting but it is in great shape except for a leaky gas hose in the engine compartment; odometer reads 076108.

2002 X type 4WD (rare); in total great shape; owner drives it daily; always garaged.

Maybe someone knows someone who might want to buy these up? She is very motivated to move them. Everything else is sold. FYI only.

They're in Medford. It looks like some work will be required to pry them loose. Of course, the longer they sit outside the more valuable they become!

Here's a pic of the engine, I was told bidding started at $10k, a little strong for a car sitting outside, under a tarp, in a very wet climate for 20 years!

The Lotus cars are sold. The Titan is almost sold. This, according to an email I received today.
