LOTUS ELAN PLUS 2
S. 130 4 SPEED

Big valve head

Red with silver flake roof

Tax Exempt

12 months MOT & 12 Months Tax 

Galvanized chassis

This vehicle was subject to a professional restoration around 15-17 years ago but has been off the road for the last 6 years
 
I have re-commissioned the car and have carried out the following work:-
Replaced the front brake calipers. starter motor. cleaned the brakes. overhauled the brake master cylinder and brake servo. new plugs. points. condenser. strip clean carbs. new screen washer pump. wipers.

While carrying out the various jobs required I found that the car responded well to being taken apart - no seized nuts or bolts.  
I can only put this down to the full restoration the car has had.

The engine in the car is superb. the oil is like new! I would say that at some point it has been subject to a rebuild

The car's paint work is faded in the top areas and there is micro blistering around the body but with a polish up it looks very nice and I have had lot's of positive comments

The interior is in good condition.
The drivers seat requires the seat pad seem repairing and there are areas of the wooden dash board that could be refinished

The few jobs that I feel needed to be looked at are.
   I think there is a small amount of air in the system as there is a little travel when applying the brake pedal for the first time.
 (Although the brakes have been gone through and the car has passed a MOT)
I have to take off one of the battery leads as when left for 48hrs the battery goes flat
The pop up headlight's go down but come back up when the engine is not running. It is my understanding that they work on a vacuum system that must have a leak?

Overall this is a great little car that you can use straight away.
I have seen S. 130's with no MOT that don't start or drive sell for over £8500!

The car is located in Box. iltshire

Good Luck and happy bidding!
