Lotus Elan

Early S1 Elan available - choose your colour!

PostPost by: dunclentdr1 » Thu Aug 06, 2020 12:00 pm

One of my S1 Elans is available - registered 1/1/64 and one owner car until 2016 - rare black dash and factory factory fitted 26R style wheel and original interior.

The car has had a new new chassis plus fast road TTR suspension and brakes, refreshed gearbox and engine to sprint spec with an early style head rebuilt by Nick Stagg around 1000 miles ago.

Why tell everyone now?! The car is coming to the end of a full body restoration (original engine bay being left as is) with a hard top included - there is still chance to pick the final paint colour, it was originally red.

If you are interested in this type of car and in a particular colour please make contact as soon as possible prior to any final colour decision, you can have the colour of you choice/dreams!

Thanks

Would you be wanting a substantial deposit to cover the possibility of someone changing their mind and then you're stuck with their colour choice? Think I would as you never know

Good thinking Steve - not had anyone step forwards yet, will go either the original red or maybe white if left up to me.

Hi David, I vote for Medici Blue, but as I recently bought what appears to be a very early S1 racecar, I seem to have a strong surplus of Elans right now.
The world needs more Medici Blue Elans.
cheers, Andrew

Thanks Steve - interesting car this one - registered 1/1/64 so probably earliest registered one with Lotus (as opposed to Bourne) built body and one of the half dozen or so Elans which left the factory with a black dash.
