Lotus Elan

Another newbie

PostPost by: 3261R » Fri Nov 06, 2020 2:22 am

Just purchased a "covid project": a '71 Elan +2S Federal; last on the road in '81; it's been "ridden hard and put away wet", but has at least been under cover. I will probably end up taking the body off.
It's not my first Lotus project; completed a '73 Europa 18 months ago.
