**************** Job Lot Now Sold ***********************************

*************************************************************************

I’m having a clearout and I’m selling this load of Elan Plus 2 parts as a job lot. Best offer around £400, collection only from Gloucester, UK.

The parts are mainly for an early Plus 2, although many of the parts can be used on both early and later models.

This lot consists of:

2 x Boot lids

Pair of headlamp pods

2 x Petrol Tanks (surface rust but solid)

3 x Petrol Tank straps

Heater, still with fibreglass cowls and controls

Pair of door window frames, straight but will need re-chroming

A few chrome finishing pieces for the door frames

Door catches and latches for early car only

Door internal handle and mechanism with operating rod (early car)

Pair of external door handles

Lucas square 8 lamps. Some good, some for parts, some covers.

Many body support brackets, mainly for the boot area. One has the early boot lock still fitted (also suitable for the S3 Elan)

Many dash support brackets, and brackets from the dash area for the steering column, heater etc.

Set of 5 wheels. A couple are good, and a couple are not! But handy to support the car in storage.

Seat runner frames

Handbrake trees, with a couple of different fittings

4 x eyeball fresh air vents

Various cables including a couple of handbrake cables

A pair of electric window motors with regulators

Pedal box with master cylinders and pedals…early type.

Internal door pulls for early car

Wheel arch closing panels for refurb . 2 sets

Filler cap with tube

Pair of front shock absorbers

2 x plenum chamber aluminium grilles….same side

Lockhead servo

Chrome strips for doors and sills….some dents but a couple are repairable

2 x propshafts

Section of bodywork under rear bumper / boot for early Plus 2 with transverse exhaust.

Glove box liner with security switch

Several indicator stalks / switches

Gear lever surround (x 2) and rubber gaitor (x 1) for early cars

A few other bits and pieces!

There are a couple more parts that are not shown in the photos, but they do come with the collection.

These are:

A pair of rear hubs

A wiper motor with tubes, wheel boxes and drive cable

Spare tubes, drive cable and boxes

An arm-rest top for an early car with hinge

A set of headlining ribs

A set of headlining ribs still in an old headlining…for reference!

I’m sure there will be more.

Many of these parts are now very hard to find, and if you have an early car especially, there are a lot of good spares here for your car. Try finding door opening / latching mechanisms when you want them!

As mentioned at the top, I’m open to offers of £400 ish. I’m not selling individual bits at this stage, and everything must go in one lot. The exception being the chunk of bodywork…if you don’t want that then I’ll get rid of it.

Most of these bits are for refurbishing, and some of them are a bit grotty, but worth having as a pattern. Most are good though! Have a good look at the photos. They are high-res, so download to study.

Send me a PM if interested, and if you can collect within a month.

Mark

Great for a re-builder. If you change your mind and decide to split it up (or someone else buys them all to split) I'd like the fuel tank straps......

Good luck

Thanks

Thanks Mike. If I still had an early Plus 2 I'd buy this lot for spares, as many of the parts are hard to find now, and certainly not available even as poor reproductions. Just noticed that a new petrol tank for a Plus 2 is £400 to £500 depending on where you buy one. I would imagine that someone could buy this lot, nab the bits they wanted and sell the rest off and get most of their money back. But I just want to clear the space!!

Yes I fully understand, I'm looking to offload a single spare tank and boot lid to clear space!

Anyway, I could also get my damaged straps repaired or buy new stainless parts.

Good luck with the sale

I have seen new straps somewhere Mike so I'm sure someone somewhere is making them. If this lot doesn't sell though you can have the straps of course.
