Am looking to sell my very special Lotus Elan, have owned it for many years. A comprehensive summary of work I have done, improvements made, additions, and its overall condition: starting with the world’s best chassis.
54 final drive. The highest ratio available for quieter, more relaxed highway cruising. Have added a Wilwood dual master cylinder for a higher degree of safety, brakes have been rebuilt, Aeroquip flex lines, adjustable ride height at each corner.
it too was excellent, replaced, rebuilt, etc. And the final result of all of this extensive work? A 1,400 pound car with probably around 130hp, smooth, refined, excellent ride, possibly the best steering of any car in the world, quick shifting, super close ratios, awesome looks, and truly THE iconic small sports car once described in an English enthusiasts magazine as being ‘the ultimate in squirtability, the ability to ‘squirt through traffic’ like no other car.
HENCE call. THERE is a reserve, it is rather substantial, and no, this car is not selling for pennies. Sorry, bargain Elans are from a different era.
