Elan Seats

PostPost by: SpeedModel » Fri Feb 09, 2024 9:53 pm

I have a nice pair of original Elan seats that have been gathering dust on a shelf in my garage for 20 years. They are in very nice useable condition. Look at photos, but nevermind the dust. The front bar has surface rust on both but is solid. $800 for the pair. Located near Charlotte, North Carolina. Message me if you’re interested.

Hi,

I am interested by your seats. Are they still available?
I am based in Switzerland. What would be the cost to send them to Switzerland and how long could it take until I get them ?

Thanks and best regards,
Olivier

Do you know what series they originally came from? I need 1965 S2. I am in Canada, but would obviously pay for shipping.

I believe the textured center seat pattern was used mostly on Series 3 Elans, although I have also seen them in S2 and S4 models. The later S4 Federal models had higher seat backs with integrated head rests. The S1 seat frames had a slightly different seat spring design, plus the vinyl fabric had a center section with smooth finish rather than texture. Most of the S2 cars I have seen have smooth vinyl.

There is another gentleman from Canada that responded first and said that he wants them, but was trying to figure out the best way to ship. I haven't heard back so I will reach out to see if he still wants them. A fellow from Boston was the 2nd to raise his hand.
