We are pleased to present this Lotus Elan S4 DHC (Drop Head
Coupé) which has recently been repatriated from Long Beach. br/>California. This is a genuine DHC and not. as commonly seen. an
adapted hardtop version as confirmed by the Lotus 'Classic
Certificate of Vehicle Provenance'. An accompanying letter from
Lotus states that this is a Type 45 DHC with a unit number of 8799.
It also confirms that the engine number G18158. with the suffix G. br/>represents the standard compression and engine size for the
American market. It further states that it left the factory on the
11th April 1969 under the invoice number of ECS4487. br/>representing a factory assembled car for export. The Elan was
originally distributed by 'British Motor Cars Distributors' in the
Los Angeles area; unfortunately. Lotus has suffered loss of some of
the original documents so cannot confirm the original works order
or specifications of that time.

On inspection. this Elan requires restoration; the coachwork has
partially been stripped but. importantly. the original engine still
remains in it resulting in this being a matching numbers Elan; an
important detail in relation to values. Further inspection reveals
what appears to be a mostly complete motor car; the interior and
glass is there but the interior will require re-trimming. Being of
glass fibre construction. there are no corrosion issues to deal
with in regard to the exterior. The gel coat has been stripped on
the front of the bodywork. no doubt done to remove gel cracking
that is common on this type of construction. The history file
contains a NOVA Certificate. US Ownership Certificate. Import Entry
Acceptance Advice (UK duties marked paid) and the previously
mentioned Lotus letter and Lotus Classic Certificate of Vehicle
Provenance.

Offered at 'No Reserve' this genuine Type 45 factory built Lotus
Elan S4 represents an excellent opportunity given the strong
support by restoration specialists and parts suppliers. plus the
rising market prices for this model.
