Lotus Elan

1974 PLUS 2 S130/5

PostPost by: mcclelland » Thu Sep 17, 2020 3:22 pm

Hello all,
just a quick note to say sadly after a 5 year total nut and bolt no expense spared rebuild of my S130/5 I am now selling due to emigrating in a few weeks. The car has only been on the road a couple of weeks and done 130 miles, not run in yet.
The car is being listed on Ebay 17/9/2020 at 8.30pm......Item ID: 133521890254. For anyone interested or needing more information then please phone me on the number given in the Ebay ad.
Many thanks, best regards to all, George.

I believe he is hoping for higher bids but setting a floor. Looks nice, Lagoon Blue like my 'ropa. Looks a bit Roman Purple in some of the pics based on light. I like the exterior/interior combination.

What a blow for you after all your effort and expense.
I hope that the market responds appropriately and that you get fair recompense.
It looks stunning and will be a great buy for someone.

PS Is that a Sprint in the engine background as well?

Hi Mark,
the car in the back ground is a 1968 S4 that is now sold. I do however have an M100 that I will be taking with me.....so not all sad news.

Good luck with the sale that is a lovely looking car.
Bit short of space at the minute or I would be interested myself.
Not far away either.

I'm in the process of putting a baby Elan together. They are really hard work to get right and not cheap. If I was buying a Lotus again I would definitely go for the best I could afford.
