Lotus Elan

Boot (Trunk) Hinges

PostPost by: tesprit » Mon May 25, 2015 4:33 pm

I have a pair of original boot hinges for an Elan S3 or S4 to sell. These are originals and have some wear, but they still look good for 40+ year old parts and they are fully functional with no cracks or broken parts. RD Enterprises sells new reproductions for $63 each + shipping so I am thinking $50 + shipping for this pair is fair. Send me a private message if you are interested or have any questions.

Hi Dan, I am interested as mine have lost all their chrome plating. Problem is these don't look at all like my S3 which, of course, is all original. Mine are longer and have two mounting bolts on each hinge. Is it possible these are S4 or not even Lotus? Obviously, I am not an expert here, just speculating. Thanks, Scott

Dan, just figured it out. Mine are S1/2 hinges because I have a pre-air flow coupe that used some S2 parts.

Yes, these hinges are definitely for the late S3 and all S4 Elans (they fit the Europa rear engine/boot lid too).

Yep, except an Imp is an even rarer find here in the US than either an Elan or Europa!
