This Lotus Elan has never been over restored - the doors, boot , bonnet fit as they would have done when it left the factory. the dash still has an original dealer sticker on it.
In the last 9 year it has had:
The rear Driveshaft conversion from rubber donut to solid drive with new halfshafts, diff output shafts, hubshafts etc.
New Front & rear shocks & springs
Aluminium rear uprights
Fast road Exhaust Manifold, Centre pipe and Silencer
Front anti roll bar bushes
4 new tyres
It had a new chassis(looks like a lotus chasis in 2010/11, not galvanised
Since the above it has had low mileage and only in dry weather, garaged throughout.
It has a standard lotus twin cam, 1558cc engine, the S3 was pre - big valve head and I have no reason to believe it is not the original.
This car drives & handles extremely well, slick solid gear changes and excellent steering response as should be expected from an Elan. This is an honest car and reluctant sale.
Guaranteed to make you grin whenever you drive it.
