This wonderful little LHD Elan was exported to Portugal from new and stayed there until I bought it in 2014. At that time I brought the car to the UK to be extensively restored. Most of the work was carried out by Paul Matty.
The car has a galvanised replacement chassis and the brakes, suspension and steering were extensively overhauled. The Engine was re-built by JS motorsports and fitted with JS42 camshafts and produces 146 BHP on the dyno with plenty of low down torque which makes it not only fast but extremely tractable to drive. The gearbox was re-built and a new limited slip differential fitted. Solid drive shafts were also added. The car has a full stainless steel exhaust system and new aluminium fuel tank.
The bodywork underwent a full strip back and seven stage process to a reach craze free high quality finish in Lotus yellow over white by Option 1 of Bromsgrove. The hood and tonneau are as new. The interior and dash are in excellent order.
The car has been impeccably maintained and serviced since the restoration, covering only 9,500 km since 2014 and has proven to be extremely reliable and a joy to drive. The car is in Mallorca with all its import duties paid and with a Spanish historic registration plate. It is a perfect car for the island and great fun on the twisty mountain roads with its incredible handling and raspy exhaust!
It is with sadness that I now offer this fantastic car for sale for £46,500 / €54,000.
