1973 Lotus Elan +2S 130



1973 Lotus Elan +2S 130

Owned for many years by an overseas based vendor who now wishes to dispose of the vehicle following long term storage.  Now requiring full restoration.  We are in possession of the current V5 with the vehicle now recorded  as SORN.  Tremendous potential!!   

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

  • A complete car that has been under a tarpaulin for many years
    Ran perfectly when taken off the road apart from water pump that may need replacement
  • All original parts other than replacement splined drive shafts to avoid problems with perished rubber couplings
  • Electronic ignition
    Fuel pressure control installed which can act as protection from theft if set to zero
  • Manually controlled additional electric cooling fan
  • Specialist hand-built engine (John Cockerill of Sandsend and Whitby) which has run maybe 10k miles
  • DellOrto carbs
  • Clear cellulose coat lifted in many places and some bubbling of fibreglass
  • Rear bumper corroded as is metal frame of the boot and catch
  • Dashboard finish needs attention
  • Leather interior un-damaged but needs cleaning and treating
  • Rear window seals perished. Glass removed and intact

On-site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Remember, we personally collect FREE of charge around 50% of all our auction vehicles. So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455 Thank you.
