ALL PARTS AVAILABLE FOR SALE, EMAIL ME WHAT YOURE INTERESTED IN, AND ILL GIVE YOU A PRICE. Been collecting bits for this car for years, planned to do a ZETEC conversion. The big stuff includes a restored frame with TTR 26R style reinforcements ( done on a proper frame table, so I know it's straight and square), also and unrestored frame. Full set of 26R fender flares, new lightweight bonnet, new Pilkington windscreen, sliding spline rear axles. Three sets of front spindles and brakes, stock Elan,GT6, and Wilwoods. Unmodified zetec engine. Best to look though the 70+ pics to see what's there.

Looks like a great project, but SWMBO would kill me if I had 2 projects!

I would second the great project but sure will take a ton of labor to build it. If I were a little closer to you I would hitch up the trailer and head your way. Yes it will never be an original but what fun with the extra scoot of a zetec, I put one in a TVR and man it did run well verses the stock 1600.
Someone should snap this up and start building!!!!!

Hello Fellow Enthusiasts (Lotus Nuts)

Anyone know if those Wilwood Brakes ( calipers/rotors) will fit a 1972 Lotus Elan Plus II?...
If they do, I'd be interested in the sets for both front/rear...Thanks!...Mark
