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.

Lotus Elan Sprint convertible
Sold at http://www.ClassicarGarage.nl Lotus Elan Sprint convertible, year 1971. In the year 1962 the Lotus Elan saw the light of day. The Lotus Elan was styled by Ron Hickman. The car was very compact and lightweight but it was spacious enough for two tall persons. The Lotus Elan featured state of the art technology and fabulous roadholding capabilities. Photo's and sound from the Marc Vorgers http://www.ClassicarImages.nl archives.





Big Lotus Elan crash Brands hatch 2011
Heavy contact in the CSCC swinging sixties group 2 race resulted in 3 very damaged cars. The no.14 Scimitar SE5 GTE runs wide, rejoins and collects the innocent no.42 Lotus elan of Philip Rothwell and the no.99 lotus seven of John Muirhead. Carnage ensues as the rear 3rd of the Elan gets taken off. Very lucky it didnt end a lot worse as the fuel tank was in the rear third that got destroyed! Also apologies for the fencing getting in the way a bit,I was sitting down at the time!





1969 Lotus Elan Plus 2
Lotus Elan Manufacturer Lotus Cars Production 1962--1973 Assembly Hethel, England Body style 2-door coupe 2-door roadster Layout FR layout Engine Lotus TwinCam 1,557 cc (1.6 L) I4 Wheelbase 2,134 mm (84 in) Length 3,683 mm (145 in) Width 1,422 mm (56 in) Height 1,156 mm (46 in) Curb weight 688 kg (1,517 lb) Lotus Elan is the name of two convertible cars and one fixed head coupé produced by Lotus Cars. The original Type 26, 26R Racing version (of the S1 Elan), 36R Racing version (of the S2 Elan), 36 Fixed Head Coupe, 45 Drop Head Coupe, and the "Type 50" +2 Coupe, circa 1962 to 1975, are commonly known as the '60s Elans. The Type M100 from 1989 to 1995, is also commonly known as the 1990s Elan. The original Elan was introduced in 1962 as a roadster, although an optional hardtop was offered in 1963 and a coupé version in 1965. The two-seat Lotus Elan replaced the elegant, but unreliable and expensive to produce Lotus Elite. It was the first Lotus road car to use the now-famous Elan steel backbone chassis with a fibreglass body. At 1,500 lb (680 kg), the Elan embodied the Colin Chapman minimum weight design philosophy. Initial versions of the Elan were also available as a kit to be assembled by the customer. The Elan was technologically advanced with a DOHC 1557 cc engine, 4-wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and 4-wheel independent suspension. The "Lotus TwinCam" engine was based on Ford Kent Pre-Crossflow 4-cylinder 1498 cc engine, with a Harry Mundy-designed 2 valve alloy chain-driven twin-cam head. The rights to this design was later purchased by Ford, who renamed it to "Lotus-Ford Twin Cam". It would go on to be used in a number of Ford and Lotus production and racing models. Lotus Elan +2 Production 1967--1975 Body and chassis Body style 2-door 2+2-seater coupe Layout FR layout Engine Lotus TwinCam 1,557 cc (1.6 L) I4 Transmission 4-speed manual all-synchromesh Wheelbase 96 in (2,438 mm) Length 169 in (4,293 mm) Width 66 in (1,676 mm) Height 47 in (1,194 mm) An Elan +2 was introduced in 1967 with a longer wheelbase and two more rear seats. The Elan +2 embodied the Lotus spirit: It was a fast and agile sport coupe. It combined the performance and reliability of the Elan "Coupe" with genuine 2+2 passenger comfort. Tested maximum power: 108-126 bhp (net) (depending on the model); top speed: 120 mph (190 km/h), 0--60 mph in 7.9 seconds, 0-100 mph 21.8 seconds. 5,200 Elans +2 were made: fewer than 1,200 of these cars remain in the roads today. Their relative rarity, beautiful lines, impressive performance and practicality are the main factors for the rising interest on these cars among collectors. The Elan ceased production in 1973 and the Elan +2 in 1975, succeeded by Elite II and Lotus Eclat. An estimated total of 17,000 original Elans and Elans +2 were built. Because of its successful design and rigorous attention to cost control on the body, chassis, engine and the transmission, the Elan went on to become Lotus' first commercial success, reviving a company stretched thin by the more exotic and expensive to build Lotus Elite with fiberglass monocoque body/chassis and all-aluminium Coventry Climax engine; and enabled funding of the Lotus success in racing over the next ten years. This generation of the two-seater Elan was famously driven by the character Emma Peel on the British television series The Avengers. In 2004, Sports Car International named the Elan number six on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. The original version of the car was designed by Ron Hickman,[1] who also designed the first Lotus Europa as part of Lotus' GT40 project bid and made his fortune having designed the Black & Decker Workmate. The original Elan is usually credited as being the design inspiration for the highly successful 1989 Mazda MX-5 (Mazda Miata in North America). Two Elans were intimately evaluated by Mazda in the process of designing the MX-5. Source: Wkipedia
