1968 LOTUS ELAN +2 For Sale by Auction

1968 LOTUS ELAN +2 Chassis No: 50-1214 Engine No: Q 85877P Auction Estimate: AU$32,000 - $36,000 (£18,000 - £20,500 approx.) https://www.mossgreen.com.au/m/lot-details/index/catalog/473/lot/140990/1968-LOTUS-ELAN-2 This rare 1968 ‘Black Badge’ Lotus Elan +2 is finished in period correct Porsche Golden Green with its original black interior trim and carpet. Purchased by the current owner 18 years ago the car has been well maintained by him, always garaged and drives and performs beautifully. Originally delivered to Geoghegan’s in Sydney in 1968, this Elan +2 features a new Spyder chassis with internal roll bar and sump guard fitted. The twin-cam engine has had a recent refresh, the 4-speed close ratio gearbox is smooth, and it has a constant velocity rear drive (as opposed to the Lotus doughnuts). Fitting a new set of 165 x 13 tyres on to the original 13” Lotus alloy rims is recommended. A purpose-fitted Catalina car cover sporting a Lotus badge is included, along with the original jacking plate, and a Lotus Elan workshop manual. And as for the ‘Black Badge’ on the bonnet? Some say that these were fitted to a limited production run of cars to commemorate the death of the legendary Jim Clark in April 1968 who had been so successful racing for Lotus in 1963 and 1965. Others meanwhile posit the theory that this story is apocryphal and that having run out of the traditional yellow Lotus badge, those in the factory in Norfolk, of necessity, turned to a box of Black Badges that had arrived by mistake, and simply used these until the next batch of yellow badges arrived. This car is being offered for auction on 10th December along with many other highlights including: 1965 SUNBEAM TIGER MK1A 1970 MORRIS MINI COOPER S MKII MINI MOKE CALIFORNIAN 1275CC 4WD PROTOTYPE 1968 LOTUS ELAN +2 1935 TRIUMPH 548cc SIDE-VALVE MODEL 5/1 1926 BSA 500cc SIDE-VALVE FLAT TANK 1950 NORTON 500 cc MODEL 18 1969 SHELBY MUSTANG GT500 FASTBACK (LHD) 1974 CHRYSLER VJ VALIANT CHARGER XL COUPE 1936 BSA EMPIRE STAR 1948 NORTON 500cc MODEL 18 1966 MERCEDES-BENZ 300SE COUPÉ 1968 FIAT 125 SAMANTHA BY VIGNALE 1976 DAIMLER VANDEN PLAS 4.2 1991 NISSAN SKYLINE R32 GT-R COUPE You can browse the full catalogue here: https://www.mossgreen.com.au/m/view-auctions/catalog/id/473/
