Elan +2 S130/5 1974 last of the line.
MOT and Tax exempt. Runs and drives well.
New clutch, tyres, master and slave cylinders, brake and clutch hoses.
The engine has done minimal mileage since it was rebuilt by a previous owner and has excellent compression on all cylinders.
The chassis is original and has previously been shot-blasted and powder coated. New sill members have been fitted, and the suspension rebuilt with a UJ driveshaft conversion and correct dampers.
All the electrics work including the outside temperature gauge and clock. The original Philips Turnolock radio is included.
All the chrome trim is present and correct including a new front bumper and grille.
The interior is reasonable but tired with a few tears in the vinyl. The under-dash panels are missing but new ones will be supplied as part of the sale as is a new parcel shelf and carpeted boot boards.
The weakest point is the paintwork which is showing its age with typical crazing and bubbles. The photographs make it look better than it is.
This car would suit an enthusiast to bring it back to its best with minimal mechanical work and some time and effort on the interior and paintwork.
Sale includes Elan+2 owner’s handbook and Lotus workshop manual.
