Christopher Neil Sport Cars (Well known Lotus dealer and long time Elan specialist) converted a number of standard Elan +2's to cabriolets.
An early bucket seat Elan +2 1968 and one of the first 500 produced, finished in Lotus Cirrus white with oatmeal interior.
The previous long term owner purchased this Elan in standard form back in 1981 and set about a full restoration including a Lotus chassis from Spyder engineering.
In 1988 he sent the Elan to Christopher Neil's for the cabriolet conversion, along with a full respray, rewire and trim the bill came to ?8280 this was on top of the other restoration work.
We have just put her throught our workshops for the following work. A full brake rebuild, fully serviced the engine changed all the fluids and ran a full compression test which returned great results, set the timing and retuned the carbs.
The body work is lovely, the bumpers have just been re-chromed, the interior and hood are excellent and more importantly she drive lovely. The chassis is in perfect condition it was a Lotus replacement from Spyder not a Spyder chassis. It still looks like new.
If you want a rare convertible Lotus with 2+2 seating in excellent condition with gleaming white paintwork then you have found the perfect car.
Happy to ship worldwide.
