hello Im Luke live in Kent and build and machine engines for a living

just signed up to the forum have got myself a 1967 lotus elan coupe sort of a barn find my aunt and uncle have had it since 1968 and since 1978 its been stored in their massive garage under loads of protective sheets,

just signed up for some advice really and on the look out for parts for it now :-) its like new still as it had a full respray in 1969. and it only has 22,000 miles from new with all the old history log books and MOTs the interior is also perfect condition. but i no underneath needs looking at brakes don't work fuel tank has had fuel sitting in it for the last 37 years and the tyres don't really hold air anymore for obvious reasons

ill stick one picture up soon as i only have one from today after loading it all up on the trailer

thanks Luke
