Comments: This early +2 has only 2 Owners from new, 1660 cc Engine with 4 speed gearbox, MOT history and general service history back to 1981. A non standard example set up for driving pleasure. It drives amazingly well and is a credit to its former keeper. Paintwork is tired in places hence our very realistic price.

Purchased by the 2nd owner in 1977 as a project. After stripping down everything was rebuilt. A new zinc sprayed Lotus chassis and sill braces were fitted. Body was stripped back to gell coat and repainted. The engine was fully rebuilt and the gearbox had new bearings. The car returned to the road in 1981.
The specification and recent works include:

Tall block 1660cc engine fitted in 1999 original head with big valves , CPL2 reground camshafts and unleaded seats.

The head was rebuilt with new valves and guides in Jan 2006

TTR diff output, drive and hub shafts

Electonic fuel injection with Jenvey throttle bodies and Emerald ECU with adjustable maps. Race Tech digital read out panel.

Elise Probax S1 seats

Koni adjustable rear struts fitted in 2005, new Protech front dampers and springs in Nov 18.

Large bore silencer in 2012

Gearbox was rebuilt in 2012/13 with new bearings and seals

Rebuilt brake servo, new track rod ends, clutch slave cylinder seal and tyres replaced in 2017

Caliper pistons changed to stainless in August 2019

Engine removed for oil leaks, rebuilt with new gaskets and seals, new clutch pressure plate, oil pump, water pump and timing chain. carried out in Oct 2019

Twin aux belts are fitted to allow less strain on the water pump.

The paintwork is still the original 1981 paint so there are various areas of fading, crazing, blistering and there is a minor scrape on the passenger side rear quarter.

The car will be supplied checked over as it was serviced in May, given 12 months MOT and supplied with a limited 3 month/3000 mile warranty.
