1966 Lotus Elan drophead with Sprint engine.   Great looking. great handling iconic British sportscar with one of the best rifle-bolt gearboxes around.   Still one of the fastest A to B driving tools.   Ask Harry Metcalfe.   Full Spyder roll bar with extensions (goes through sills and in front of feet). Engine now has correct Tony Thompson supplied block and twin Webers.   Rebuilt with an S4 body by Henry Pearman's Eagle Racing (of E Type and Group C racing fame) in the late 1980s. Engine rebuilt by Hart Motor Services in 2001 and body painted beautifully in Maserati Sera blue metallic by D. J. Rose (historic F1 paint specialist) in the same year.   Still gorgeous now.   Always garaged and maintained with no expense spared since I bought it in 1998.   Forget the unreliability jibes like most simple classic cars. Elans are reliable if maintained correctly.   Supplied with Lotus workshop manual. Brian Buckland's brilliant guide. Sony iPod player.   East Lothian registration Jim Clark's garage connections? - never researched. but possible.   Donuts renewed last year.   Only reason for sale. house purchase.
