1969 FHC for sale

PostPost by: Flightmate » Fri Aug 26, 2016 3:33 pm

Selling my 69 FHC. I bought it from another forum member earlier this spring. I'm happy I had the experience of owning it, but have decided it just isn't the car for me. We also just had our first child and I am finding there is very little "extra" time left over in the day to go for a joyride. Here is a link to the previous owners for sale thread:

lotuselan-for-sale-f2/sold-sold-sold-1969-elan-fhc-updated-for-sale-t35675.html

The previous owner was super nice to deal with and accurately represented the car. The car has definitely been very well cared for and it shows. The car is in the same condition as when I bought it other than I did a full tune up on it. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and coil. I also put a quieter muffler on it, but the one on it when I bought it is included.

The car runs fantastic, and is a blast to drive. There are pictures in the link above, but I can provide any extra pictures if needed.

Located in Minnesota.

Asking $27,000.

Thanks!

are you taking a LOSS on this?
there's a very nice red coupe on sale right now on Bring-a-Trailer that's up to $20K now and has 4 days to go. Watch what it sells for and price yours accordingly. Perhaps even list it with BaT.
Good luck and don't take a loss!!!!

Thanks! Good advice. I had a blast driving/enjoying the car this year, so even if it would be a loss on paper I consider it money well spent. :D :D

A couple more pictures after washing. This is a super clean car ready for a new owner. Headlights do shut all the way, just got bumped while washing and I didn't catch it until after the pictures were taken.
