Lotus Elan

Various parts and books

PostPost by: adigra » Wed Aug 12, 2020 6:06 pm

Now that my Elan is gone I am clearing various bits and books I have sitting around.

Local pickup is preferred, especially for the bigger parts. I'm in Ilkley, West Yorkshire. I hope I am pricing everything on the low end, but please let me know if anything is out of line. There are some parts I don't know how to price, so am open to offers.

Rear light lenses. Excellent condition. £60

Rear light bezels by Kelvedon. Alloy, so will need polishing. New, unused. £80 for both
Here it is on Kelvedon website: https://kelvedonlotus.co.uk/product/rear-light-bezel/

Side repeater lenses. Perfect, repro. I can't remember exactly, but I think I got them here on the forums and never used. Can't remember what I paid, but let's say £20 for both.

Workshop Manual Black 1970. Very good condition, but the first page holes have ripped out, the rest is very good. I can't find any to figure out a price, so feel free to let me know what it might be worth.

Workshop Manual Green, 1974 Revised Reprint. Very good condition, mostly age related marks on the paper, but it's in excellent used condition. £60

Sold - The Rebuilding of a Lotus Elan by Brian Buckland, Loose leaf 2006 edition. Very good/excellent condition, only slight wear on the paper holes and a few storage and handling marks. Again, can't find a price, so make me an offer.

The original Lotus Elan book, perfect. £10

A few things still in the garage I'll take photos of later.

Chrome Wheel Trim, single unused from Paul Matty £20

Weber 40 trumpets, I think they are 39mm, new, unused. £30 for all four

Boot carpet set pre-cut from Mick Miller or Paul Matty (sorry can't remember which) for the whole boot, including trimmed boot floor carpet, plus both floor matts with fixings. Unused. Let's say £80 for the lot.

Original early Twin-cam cam cover with the Lotus down both sides. Very good condition, but the paint is scruffy. Currently red. £150 (some crazy prices for these on ebay, so let me know if I am way off. This one came off my car as I fitted a freshly painted spare, but it was so long ago I can't remember what the prices were)

Finally the original equipment reel seat belts from a '67 S/E. Completely seized, and the webbing is rotten, but everything is there and the buckles are definitely salvageable. I don't want any money for them, if someone is looking for them to complete their car and they think they can salvage these, they can have them. Would definitely prefer pickup.

I might find some other stuff as I clear out...

If somebody wants it all, make me an offer!

Adi

Hi Adi

I'm really sad you sold your beautiful Elan, bug it is what it is and hopefully it went to a good home!

I would like the cam cover please and the repeater lenses.

I don't suppose you are coming down to Tunbridge Wells soon? I still have your old exhaust manifold set, if you remember.......

I might be interested in the bezels for the rear lights too.....

PM me and we'll talk further....

All the best

I've PM'd you Adam.

Yeah, my time with the car just kind of reached an end. It's as good now as it can possibly be, so it felt like it was the right time to move on. Paul Matty took it, so it will be for sale again soon I'm sure.

Adi, good to hear from you, sad that you're leaving the Elan club, your car was gorgeous.

By chance I fitted your CV driveshafts to my Sprint yesterday after being 7 years in storage. :roll:

Good luck to you

Hi Adigra
Please can I have the seat belts. I have static belts on my car and always wanted to change to the correct reel types, ( if and when. )
I may be able to restore them.
I have a friend and ex colleague who lives in Ilkley and will pick them up for me.
Please PM me with your details and i will ask him to call.

Adi,

I'll take the wheel trim if it's still available and if you don't mind posting it to the USA.

Let me know.

Cheers,

Mike

Lots of messages to catch up with!

Buckland book is sold.

The cam cover, carpets, repeater lenses and the rear light bezels all reserved.

The seat belts are also provisionally reserved.

Andrew, no message from you in the inbox. There is someone interested in the amber lenses, but I don't want to split them up, so they might be still available.

Mike, not sure if it's practical to ship the wheel trim to the US as the shipping would cost more than the part. Are they not available there? If not I'm happy to do it, but I should check the postage first before you commit.

Adi,

Regarding the wheel trim.

I’ll get you ship it to my brother-in-law in Cheshire and I’ll pick it up next time I come over(Covid permitting).

His address is:

Mike Crowther
℅ Robert Pritchard
21 Inveresk Road

Cheshire.

Let me know the total cost and how you’d prefer to be paid.

Thanks
Mike

I forgot this: Spin-Easy Wheel Spinner Tool, only a few marks on it, but otherwise perfect. £80 Quite heavy lump though, so postage might be expensive, so prefer a pickup.

And here are a couple of photos of the seatbelts for reference. The buckles are definitely salvageable, but the rest is questionable at best. The reels themselves aren't too bad, but I was told by a seat belt specialist that they legally couldn't touch them.

I also have a couple of clip on mirrors, a round one and a rectangular one, in great condition, so if someone is already picking something up from me they can have them if they want.

The mirrors are free for pickup. I'll have to see how much the shipping would be.
