This is an auction for my 1968 Lotus Elan Plus2. It has not been used for the last 32 years & was partially dismantled many many years ago.
Some parts have been lost (nothing drastic) but it is virtually complete & ready for a total rebuild/restoration.
The engine is stripped & appears to be very good. It has been bored to +30thou. There are no marks or steps on the bore & it turns over very freely.
Any inspection is welcome. The car moves easily(I have freed the brakes).
Delivery can be arranged just send your postcode & I will get a quote.
There is NO RESERVE but it is advertised elsewhere & if bidding is slow or non existent it will be withdrawn.
These cars are getting quite rare & should make a good investment.  
If you need to know anymore please ask & I will do my best to answer but silly offers from the obviously brain dead will be ignored.
Please remember that this vehicle is for restoration. look at the pictures. you bid to buy not to view.
