1969 Lotus Elan - Jay Leno's Garage
1969 Lotus Elan. In the late 1940s, engineer and RAF pilot Colin Chapman decided to utilize the experience he gained in the skies on the ground, by building a racecar in his girlfriend's garage. While still holding down his day job, Chapmen begged, borrowed and bartered to create his prototype, which he entered in a time trial as an afterthought. » Subscribe: http://bit.ly/JLGSubscribe » Visit the Official Site: http://bit.ly/JLGOfficialSite THE BEST OF JAY LENO'S GARAGE » Exclusive First Looks: http://bit.ly/JLGExclusives » Ultra Rare Supercars: http://bit.ly/JLGSupercars » Jay's Book Club: http://bit.ly/JLGBookClub JAY LENO'S GARAGE ON SOCIAL Follow Jay: http://Twitter.com/LenosGarage Like Jay: http://Facebook.com/JayLenosGarage ABOUT JAY LENO'S GARAGE A new video every Sunday!

Vintage: 1957 Lotus Elite | Drive it!
Christoph Bauer on the hunt for the classics of automotive history. Looking around Wolfburg's Zeithaus Musem, Christoph Bauer discovers one of the more innovative sports cars of the 1950s: the Lotus Elite. Just over a thousand of this model were built between 1957 and 1963. Founder of Lotus Colin Chapman ventured into new technical territory with this model. The body and the chassis were constructed completely from fiberglass parts, which were then fused together. The Elite also featured a purist interior design, paired with low-slung seating and a snappy gear shift. For more go to http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15846404,00.html

Lotus Elan +2 FOR SALE
This is my Lotus Elan +2 built in 1972 and registered in 1973, therefore it's classed as a historical vehicle and qualifies for free road tax. The mileage is currently 38,000 miles with a folder showing the repairs and maintenance going back to 1973 with old MOTs showing the increase in mileage until the car was taken off road 10 years ago and recommissioned last year. It's currently taxed and MOT'd and is in daily use, it has never failed to start and it runs and drives beautifully. Everything works as it should including interior lights, door puddle lights, headlamps (that have been converted to halogen bulbs), the door locks, clock, ambient temperature, rev-counter, speedo, electric windows and has the original working radio. All the electrics are good and it is currently running on an electronic ignition system and a Lucas high power coil. It runs on unleaded fuel. The cooling fan has been replaced to a nine inch fan that fits directly in the front of the radiator. I have sat in heavy traffic on a hot day with no overheating issues whatsoever. The heaters work on both the hot and the cold position. The heater rear window also works which is excellent for defrosting the rear screen on those cold winter mornings. The wheels are steel knock-ons with the chrome outer rims and five brand new 165 R13 Goodyear GT80 tyres. The brake discs and pads have been replaced all around. The discs are the drilled and grooved type that give excellent braking. The callipers and brake pipes have all been replaced and are all as good as new. The car has been fully serviced including spark plugs, oil, oil filter, air filter, fuel filter, gearbox oil, diff oil and brake fluid. The car was resprayed in 1981 at David May Motor Services, according to an invoice I have. It still looks presentable and shines but as with all of these vehicles there are some blisters, small lines and imperfections but overall the car looks fantastic but would benefit from a re-spray if so required. The chassis is in excellent condition and has been fully professionally under-sealed. All the seatbelt points are strong and good. The body has never been separated from the chassis as you would expect from a low mileage vehicle. It has never been restored, only maintained. The car is an absolute pleasure to drive. It is an original vehicle with low mileage and a future investment. I will put a full years MOT on the car for the sale. The road tax is free, so you can get that whenever you like, but it is currently taxed until the end of August.

Lotus Elan +2 (SOLD)
View it on eBay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=261216973886 Lotus Elan + 2 I bought this car with the intention of a complete restoration, but as with a lot of plans they change so I am offering it for sale. The paintwork will need to be taken back to gell-coat and fully re-sprayed. It sustained damage to the drivers door hinge and off-side wing which has been repaired but needs final finishing. I would definitely recommend viewing but I will try to describe it as well as I can. The car has undergone a lot of work mainly to get it running and to pass MOT. The inner sill seat belt mountings have been replaced with galvanised ones and the seat belt plates have been replaced with stainless steel plates, also the four inner wheel arch covers have been replaced. All bolts which have been used are stainless steel. The carbs were stripped and all jets cleaned, the oil and oil filter have been replaced, the distributor cap, leads, points and plugs. I refurbished the fuel tank and she fired up and runs well with a small amount of smoke as she has not been run for years. The front brakes were freed up and the master cylinder sills replaced. Some of the metal brake pipes were also replaced. The servo was dismantled and cleaned but may need a new diaphragm. The clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder are new and it goes into gear easily, the gearbox and differential are good. The engine has a slight oil leak coming from between the head and the front cover. The radiator had a small hole which I repaired. The engine runs up to temperature and the cooling fan cuts in and has no issues with overheating at all. The number plate is non date related and very valuable. 'Reg Registrations' have valued it as a return to me at £1,400. I would assume they will advertise it for £2000+ The Exhaust has an aftermarket stainless steel rear box - it sounds good! but it may not be to your taste as it's not original. The interior has new sound proofing, brand new carpets and the seats and door cards are in excellent condition. The dashboard has its usual patina. The roof lining and the tops of the rear panels are damaged but I do have a new headliner and covering for the side panels which will come with the car. The current roof lining is white, but what I am supplying is black (to match the rest of the interior). Overall the chrome is in fair condition. The rear bumper has a small amount of rust but the front bumper is clean. The front windscreen chrome is in very good condition and is not the plastic type. The electric windows work but very slowly and will need looking at. The front windscreen is slightly cloudy and has a small chip at the top right out of the swept area, which does not affect the MOT. The rear screen rubber is new. The headlamp pods are fixed in an open position and as it is the non fail safe I've had to wire the side lights and headlights to the fog light switches in the car. To get it through the MOT. The original switches are in place and do work, all you'll need is two vacuum pods and some of the piping for the headlights to operate normally. New parts Galvanised sill member kit (fitted) Stainless steel seat belt plate kit (fitted) Brand new headlamp bowls and headlamps (fitted) Brand new O/S/F lamp Brand new N/S/R lense All new anti-roll bar bushes Spark plugs, points, leads, distributor cap rotor arm and coil new Dynomo new regulator new clutch mastercylinder new clutch slave cylinder Overall this is a driving restoration which will need a good respray to get it to a show condition. I have tried to describe the car as best as I can. It will be available to view at the Enfield Car Pageant of Motoring (25th - 27th May). Any questions please call me on 078382020020 or message via ebay.
