1971 Lotus Elan Sprint FHC - Drivers car For Sale

Now MOT exempt and reduced price After 16 years of build and lots of development, I have decided to sell my Lotus Elan. Rebuilt on a brand new Lotus galvanised chassis, rebuilt from scratch, by this I mean: Axminster panels Fuel injection alloy fuel tank All bushes replaced with polybush adjustable rear A Frames TTR driveshaft, Diff output shaft hub shaft TTR Rear dampers / platforms and fast road spring Full re-spray only 12 months ago, including original wheels. rollcage with sill bars New prop shaft onto Ford Type 9 5 speed gearbox with gear lever in the correct place. 1st is not the standard type 9 ratio, but a much taller gear closer to the ratios of the bullet 4 speed 'box rebuilt by BGH geartech. Alloy bell-housing QED concentric clutch slave cylinder Avo Front adjustable dampers slightly thicker Front Anti rollbar Fully adjustable ride height All callipers rebuilt . Twin cam engine with Kent Fast road cams (supplied by TTR) QED Vernier cam pulleys Stainless steel exhaust manifold. Alloy radiator with twin fans Fuel injection on Jenvey 45 throttle bodies MBE ECU, Modern starter motor, Custom Alloy / Carbon Fibre airbox. Ported head, new pistons, balanced crank & rods baffled sump. Gel battery, rear window and side windows are poly carbonate, but don't resonate This is one of the sweetest running twin cam's I have ever been involved with. Currently this car has full harness (out of date) belts. The rear has been fully fire walled so that I could sprint it (I haven't ever competed the car) The interior is not to standard specification but is close, including a new dash, original seats and original Chapman signed wheel, refurbished by Len Chandler. This car is a real sleeper (as much as a gold lead sports car can be!) It looks very much like a standard Elan Sprint, handles sharper and goes quicker, but cruises better. I haven't had it on a rolling road, both Torque & HP are significantly increased.
