PostPost by: Spyder fan » Fri Aug 18, 2023 11:16 am

Morning all,
I received the following communication from Scott Walker (Head of business Retail Sales Lotus Hethel)

He is looking for a very presentable 1963 Elan for static display at the revival.

Please PM me for Scotts contact details if you can help out

Good morning,

I wonder if you may be able to help. We are looking for a really presentable 1963 Lotus Elan to sit in a static display at Goodwood Revival.

We are happy to pay logistics and insure the car for static display.

Are there any owners in your register of a 1963 Type 26 that would would wish to see their car in an exhibition at Goodwood?

Please let me know if you are able to assist.

With kind regards from Hethel,



Kindest regards

Alan Thomas

I have an Elan 1600, an early car 26/0045 Bourne bodied and some verifiable early features. Problem is I am in US. Gary

I would like to offer my 1963 carmen red #26/0538 as well, As the original purchaser, I am in my 60th year of driving it now.

I suspect though that the air freight cost from Vancouver, Canada would negate the offer even though I am also willing to accompany it to ensure safe handling both to there and back.
