Lotus Elan S3 DHC 1966

This Lotus Elan has recently been imported back into the UK after spending the majority of it's life in Texas. USA and dismantled by a collector and kept in dry storage in Dallas. Texas.

As can be seen from the photograph there is no signs of accident damage. excellent fibreglass and super fit of bonnet. boot and doors.   Also has the original nose cone with rope seal in place.

The engine is dismantled but as can be seen from the photographs majority of the parts are present.

The car has the original Lotus chassis and has the original chassis no. stamped in the correct area on the frame.

I believe the original colour was red and the car was supplied by the Lotus factory in August 1966.   I have the Texas Certificate of Title (Registration document). all VAT and duties have been paid on the car.   There is a chance that the car can go back on it's original UK registration no. of SNO 45D.

The car will need a complete restoration but all the important and majority rare parts are present.   A genuine Type 45 DHC Elan and not converted.   The car also wears the bolt-on wheels which was the norm from the era.

This Elan will make a superb restoration project because of the condition of the shell and if properly restored will make it an excellent collectors Lotus.

I will be more than happy to help with advice and guidance on the restoration of the car.   Please feel free to email/call for more information.
