FOR SALE

 

1970 LOTUS ELAN CONVERTIBLE.

In it's original Bahama yellow with black interior. Lotus built car. ith heritage certificate. A very original. nmessed with example. till on it's original chassis.

 

Originally introduced in 1962. he Elan was the replacement for the very pretty Lotus Elite. t was the embodiment of Colin Chapman's philosophy of keeping weight to an absolute minimum.
With the 1600cc twin cam engine. ndependant suspension and disc brakes all round they really are a great. un car to own and drive. They are obviously renowned for their handling and with the recent fine weather we have been having. t's been a delight to take this particular example out for a drive!

 

As already mentioned. he car we have on offer here is an original Lotus built car. till in it's original Bahama yellow colour with contrasting black vinyl interior. t was originally sold through Mike Spence cars. eading in 1970.

 

These cars are frequently modified and changed so it's very nice to find such an original example. he has had a repaint at some point but otherwise looks to have been kept as standard as possible. ith no evidence of major rebuilds or modifications.

The interior is unmessed with. he seats are still very good in their original black vinyl. ll the carpets look original. he drivers side footwell carpets shows signs of age but it would be a shame to replace it. erhaps just a cover mat to tidy it up a bit?

Externally the glassfibre is in good condition. here are one or two minor crack showing. To be fair these are hard to spot and overall the car presents very well indeed. I should point out that for a little extra on the asking price these areas can be sorted.
The wheels and wheel trim are very good.

Underneath you're not going to find a spotless. resh from rebuild look. ust an honest. sed motor car. Importantly you will see that the chassis is in very good condition.

Anyone familiar with these cars will know that the fun is in driving the car and this one does not dissappoint. The engine pulls strongly. he gearchange is good. he steering sharp and the handling just as you'd hope. It really is great fun!

To sum up. his is a very original car. t presents very well inside and out. s structurally very good and mechanically sound.

Viewings are more than welcome and recommended and can be arranged for any reasonable day and time.
If you have any further questions regarding the car do feel free to email or call 01672 512879 / 07813394167.

Overseas buyers are welcome and we can help regarding shipping arrangements.

Many thanks for looking.
