Lotus Elan

Lotus Elan S2 For Sale

PostPost by: Michael » Mon Jul 17, 2023 4:53 pm

Lotus Elan S2 located north of Montreal, Canada. Was fully running when parked 10 years ago. Has been stored in a heated, humidity controlled garage. Looking to sell to a good home, car needs some TLC and to be on the road!!! I don't have the expertise to price this car but will work with this Forum to come to a fair price.

Here are some more pictures... I can pull the car out and take more / a video over the weekend. Pls respond with what pictures I should take.

Some DM Questions I have received:
Q1 Have you tried to start in the 10 years?
A1 No

Q2 Do you have the original seats / steering wheel?
A2 I thought these were original? what you see is what you get no extra parts

Q3 What would it take to get it running?
A3 I am not qualified to answer this question, there are guys on this forum that could guide you...

Q4 Are the stickers in the back covering holes?
A4 Not that I know, will verify over weekend. As per the pictures the body is in good shape. As stated this car has been stored inside a heated garage, not outside or in a barn.

Hi Michael,

I'm interested. PM sent. I'm located in New Hampshire, so not impossibly far away from the Elan S2.

Best regards,
Andy in New Hampshire

Hi Michael,
I am past owner of a Lotus S2 similar to the one you are looking to sell. Is it still available? If so what are you looking to get for it? I am located in Toronto with relatives in St Jean sur Richelieu (wife is from there) so can pop over and see the car at your convenience. Thanks

I am selling it for my father in law. He is 86, does not remember all of the details...
- bought the car in 1986
- was missing the head when he got it, imported one from the UK
- rebuilt with his kids
- drove it through the 90s
- have a fire
- insurance covered body work
- car is original, never races
- as far as we know it was never crashed

I would.have thought that car is worth twice what you people are saying. Are you taking advantage of a newbie???

As a previous owner of an Elan I know what it will take to get a 10 yr stored vehicle back into operating condition and doing it justice. If you think it’s worth more than make him an offer!

Michael,
I would like to schedule a visit to see the Lotus and was wondering what would be your availability on the following weekends in September:
Sept. 9/10 or Sept. 16/17
As stated in my previous email I am interested in buying and prepared to make a deal.

I have created a video to help show the car. There has been interest but no solid offers / visits. In my opinion this car is complete and in good condition. You could push it to a car show and be the coolest car in the lot! The motor had no issue when the car was parked. I am don't have the knowledge and don't want to damage it so have not tried to start it.

Let me know if you have any questions,

Hi Michael - is the car still available?

For me, there would be no way to know what a good price for the car would be without inspecting it in person.

You can google Elans that have been sold in North America and Europe recently to get a sense of what a running car in good condition would get. I'd say from $30K on up, but would be happy to hear other's opinions.

If it's still available, I'd like to arrange a trip up to see it. Let me know. You can email me directly at joe dot elwell at gmail dot com.

best,
Joe
