Lotus Elan Sprint, DHC For Sale (1971)****NOW SOLD****NOW SOLD****NOW SOLD****NOW SOLD****
1971 Elan Sprint DHC.
Time to sell as I have only driven it 40-Miles this year and less than 20 last year. Iím simply not driving it as it should be. Hopefully the pictures will give you a guide to its current condition, viewing is essential off course.
Owned since March 1998, subject to a full rebuild the following year.
Original Chassis and Engine. (These can be checked as I have a copy of the old-style green logbook, showing owners back to first sale)
A Lotus Heritage Certificate and Build Spec Sheet from Andy Graham at Lotus, is also available.
Sensible modís were incorporated during the rebuild, in addition to a new wiring loom (Sue Miller), a few are listed below:-
Solid Drive Shafts (Sue Miller Type, now Kelvadon)
Alternator (Ray Dent, small size)
Hi-Torque Starter Motor
(The original parts, Starter/Dynamo, front wishbones, Do-Nut Drives etc, I have kept and will come with the car, should the new owner wish to return it to exact 71-Spec)
The full-hood is as it came, back in the late 90ís. Intact, but I have never used it as the car has never been out in the rain. There is a Taunae Cover currently in use. (The hood frame is fine)
The bad bits:-
Currently the Fuel Gauge undereads. Fault has been traced to the Fuel-Tank sender unit. Normal I would have changed this when draining the fuel for winter.
The paint job I had done back in the late 90ís is starting to show its age ,predominantly on the bonnet, around the bonnet recess and a few on the rear bumper.
Realistically priced to sell, any questions, or you would like to view it, please drop me a message or call me on 07710-740949. (Ascot, Berkshire UK)
