Lotus Elan

Sold ---Elan body & chassis project---Sold

PostPost by: jabingb » Sun May 29, 2016 4:36 am

This S2 could be the basis for a track or autocross car. It obviously needs a front clip, I believe that Faye Curtis is still in the business of producing them at a reasonable price. The trunk opening is compromised but the rear wheel arches seem to be undamaged, rather unusual. More pictures are available, would prefer to e-mail them or if you would like something more specific, let me know.

The chassis was one that Rich Kamp replaced on an Elan he was working on many years ago and I don't know if it has any major issues. The rear channel in the diff area is beat up but the turrets appear to be sound, suspect it was from a California car, but it does have an unusual non-stock green color. I'd prefer a pickup in El Sobrante, CA, as I don't want the hassle of crating/shipping, it would be costly and time consuming. $1200

Is there a body number on the bulkhead - if so that might help generate some interest.

Yes, LHD, this pix more clearly shows the cover over the right hand holes somewhat peeling away.

4454 appears to be from 12th April 1965. Should be of interest to someone.

Is the source information for those numbers available somewhere? I wonder where mine (3958) fits.

I would be interested at the asking price, but it would need to be crated and shipped (at my cost, of course). Let me know if you are willing to do that!

The doors have been sold and the price is now $500 for the body (sans doors) and the chassis.
