1967(F) Lotus Elan S3 Spyder DHC. Ford Monaco Red with Black interior, Walnut dashboard and Black soft top. This stunning Elan was owned by the last owner since 1980 and was the subject of a more than 20 year body-off chassis rebuild. This was an extremely personal, high quality restoration and the owner carried out many period desirable upgrades. He had the full Spyder Convertible conversion carried out, Spyder plastic coated chassis, Vegantune stage G3 150 BHP engine fitted, Spyder nickel plated suspension and sliding drive shaft conversion, Koni adjustable shock absorbers, stainless steel exhaust system, steering rack and gearbox also rebuilt by Vegantune, new differential, electric windows, slightly flared wheelarch lips over polished period knock-on Wolfrace alloys, modern CD stereo etc. The car was bare shell repainted from the original Orange to the 1960s period colour Ford Monaco Red.
The car has only covered about 5000 miles since the rebuild was completed in 2002 with total mileage from new only around 70, 000.
We have a huge history folder with all of the bills going back 40 years and all of the old MOTs ( current MOT runs until October 2019 ) plus a large batch of photographs documenting the restoration including the show detailed rolling chassis.
If you are a purist wanting a completely unmodified factory standard ( if there is such a thing on Elans ) car this might not be for you, however, if you want a very well sorted, well prepared, superb looking and driving car this may well be for you. Paint is still excellent with some minor stress cracks to be expected on a 20 year old respray of a fibreglass car but the chassis and suspension are still in show condition.
Due to change of owner's plans, massive price reduction from £ 29, 995 to £ 24, 995
