When I restored my 65 G4 Round tube I made a complete set of body molds,with slight modification they also fit the later 66, G4 square tube which I also have.. My Lotus's are both finished and I'm still looking for an easy project which would use up my numerous spares and body molds on what is a super little car.
They are quite compact but it is possible with the square tube to lengthen the cockpit without it being too obvious and if you fit a hardtop with a reduced rear shelf you couldn't spot the difference. I'm 5' 10" so I still fit my cars but around Christmas time it can be struggle.
Having heard nothing from Fred, I guess he's decided to keep it and I don't blame him.

hi all and especially those who expressed interest in the g4 including flemming......
apologies to you and them for the lack of response from me......this is due to a domestic crisis which has been [and still is] very time-consuming......
the upshot could be that I may be in line for a financial windfall which if it materialises will remove the pressure to sell.....
when it all 'shakes out' I will be able to make a firm decision either way....

:D fred :D

well the crisis is at a 'lull' stage, giving me time to ponder cars......so have decided that even if I don't need to sell the g4 to fund the garage rebuild, there is still the problem of room/space, and the elan is corrently sitting outside unprotected. :( .......therefore the g4 will be sold.........flemming - please pm me if still interested......thanks
:D fred :D
