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.
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. Awesome steering and handling. Wheels are the correct, s/e center lock Lotus brand new wheels, all new hubs and chrome knock offs, fairly new Michelin radials.
.new LED bulbs in the gauges and interior light which works perfectly), air horns, drilled and safety wired oil drain plug, original factory plastic battery cover, brand new trunk lock with keys, heater is very effective and keeps the interior cozy even on a 20 degree day, an extra 12v outlet for my XM radio, original airbox, pushbutton solenoid, tight vacuum system (headlights don’t sink when going up long hills), original factory hand engraved VIN plate, and..
..BUT the Series 2 (of which 1250 were built, a lesser number being the high performance ‘special equipment’ model) is the most beautiful of all.
