Lotus Elan

Superb S3 SE Drophead 26R/BRM STYLE Road Racer !

PostPost by: Verve » Sat Nov 06, 2021 11:45 am

Following an enquiry today , I thought I better update this advert !

I still have the S3 Elan ... in fact it`s booked in next week at Noble Motorsport , to have a nice shiny new Paul Matty SS Big Bore Manifold fitted ( I didn`t like the lack of space around the existing TTR one ! ) , an oil & filter change & then to be optimised on their rolling road !o!

I do have 2 very good friends on here interested in it ... but both will have Elans to rehome ... meanwhile I`m looking forward to getting the car back !

It will be interesting to see what power it has ...

Cheers ,

Paul .

Surely you are not going to fit the manifold and optimise on the RR, and still sell the car....??? :shock:

Who knows ... one of the good friends on here is very interested but will have to sell his Elan to proceed ... & of course I`m very happy to keep the car anyway !

As you can see from the topic , I haven`t really pushed to sell the car ... in fact I`ve only had one viewing (from the same friend ) ... & if I keep it , there will be some racing tackle for sale off it , starting with the TTR Manifold & Y Piece & Swirl Pot just removed !

I`ve also just received the Rolling Road Printout ... looks pretty good to me :-) !

Hello paul I hope it’s ok to highjack your thread
Lovely car but I’ll be honest I was taken in by the mention of two friends who might need to sell their cars as above
I have recently started to seriously look for an elan fhc myself (maybe dhc but prefer hard top)
Are they advertising or would it be possible to let them know I am looking to see if we could loop up
Many thanks
Jeremy

Hi Jeremy ,

No prob`s ... both lads will see your thread & your wanted ad` on here ... but they have top condition drophead cars ( well , one will be if he ever finishes it`s 10 year restoration ;-) ) !

However , I`ll also mention it to another good pal , who is "thinking" of rehoming his S3 FHC ... which I would describe as a nice , usable club car ... probably just what you are looking for , according to your ad` !

Good Luck with your search & Welcome Aboard !

Cheers ,

Paul .

Norfolkboy, welcome! I wanted to dive in and say I have seen the car and it is stunning. Paul is the perfect owner and I did in fact buy a different Elan from him, which I am thoroughly enjoying. Definately worth travelling to meet Paul and view this car.
Happy hunting.
Best

Hi Norfolkboy ,

PM sent ... & thankyou James for your kind words ... I knew you were the perfect new Custodian for my Sprint FHC ( even if it did break my heart ;-) )... & I`m so pleased to see you enjoying it at the show at Ketteringham Hall & at it`s birthplace at the factory !

This has also encouraged me to downsize my little Lotus Collection ( & my home & life ! ) a bit further (even though I don`t really want to ) ... but I`ll start another thread on that !

Cheers ,

Paul .
