Lotus Elan

1972 - Elan+2 convertible question

PostPost by: Bill H » Mon Jun 13, 2005 3:33 pm

Hi out there -
I'm after advice/ info on what to check etc on a '72 Elan+2 S130 convertible. Never owned a Lotus before (had Alpine, GT6, Stag, Vitesse, MGB) - so I know very little about these. It's had a new chassis but don't know how long ago, and it's in my local garage awaiting repair on an electrical fault. I've been told the owner wants to sell, it's a bit tatty inside, but paintwork looks to be OKish and not crazed- so what's it worth? I know very little about the history of the car, but am looking to find out more this week.
Hope you Lotus fans can help me out.

Hi Bill,

Welcome to Lotuselan.net.

Trust you read the '+2 convertibles, good or bad thread' as there's a bit in there about their history.

Another source of good general +2 background info is Trevor Sparrow's site here...
