Lotus Elan

new member/old owner

PostPost by: elan3651 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 8:38 pm

Hello all,

Brand new to this group, but a Lotus owner for 35+ years, albeit not active for quite a while (primarily health issues). Have owned about 9-10 cars (depends how you count 'em, when you buy multiple basket-case cars at once), including 5 or 6 Elites (the "real" one, Type 14).
I currently have a '59 Seven S1, a '64 Elan S1/S2, and a '70 Plus 2S- none running.

I suspect I will be (trying to) sell the Plus 2, and just devote some time to working on the Elan and 7, I also have the remains of a '65 Elan S2 that was in a garage fire- the body of course was destroyed, but I bought the rest of it (drivetrain and suspensions) for spares, but I suspect it's time to send those items on to new homes as well.

So, I'll spend some time working my way through some of the forums etc. here before posting any ads, for cars or parts, but if you're looking right now for either a Plus 2 to restore, or for some S2 Elan parts feel free to try me out. It may take me a little while to get a feel for current values, but I'll be open to offers.

Hi, Stu- I founded the ELCC, in '84, but I haven't been a member of the group for quite a while.
