Oh, man. I like it. Looks like it could be quite complete. ?

Too many oceans away for me, but hopefully someone will restore it :mrgreen:

If by "complete" you mean all there, it certainly would meet that description...however, if by "complete" you mean a complete wreck, that too could apply :)

Seriously, it needs a LOT of love - the engine won't turn, it doesn't have an undamaged panel, the chrome is all rusted, the lights are cracked, the cockpit is mouldy...but if you are up for doing it all yourself, it could be a great project :)

One thing I noticed when browsing pistonheads is that they have a readers cars thread and I enjoy looking at the cars! What could be better than looking at plus 2's so here is mine a 1972 Plus 2S/130
Cheers
Gareth


In the spirit of the OP, looking forward to seeing more Plus 2s (considering they're the more rare/scarce of the two Elans) . . . :mrgreen:

(Adi, I love the lighting on that pic of your FHC; it's a beautiful shot. Is the colour wedgewood?)
