Elan +2 1968 For Sale (Now Sold)

PostPost by: KevJ+2 » Thu May 25, 2017 11:06 am

Due to a change in family circumstances, I am regretfully selling my wife's car.
I've spent the last four years totally rebuilding, what is now a lovely piece of history. Parts alone have come to 14.5K I have all receipts and hundreds of rebuild photos. New Chassis, suspension, carbs etc etc.
It has recently passed its MOT with no advisories and has an official Club Lotus valuation of 25K
I have a comprehensive build sheet for the car listing all parts used which I can email together with pictures.
I will try and sell, hopefully to someone on here first before I further advertise. I am looking for around £18,500
Yesterday, we took the car to Peter Baldwin's garage in Cambridgeshire to have a rolling road tune up (see photo) The car produced 126bhp which I am very pleased with.
Please PM me if you are interested or want any more information.
All the best,

Kev.

Thanks Ian.
The car was a 50th birthday for my wife who thinks my dad's elderly care is more important. Can't really argue with that :? I won't tell him, I think he would do his nut :lol:
I really hope that it goes to someone here first. Fingers crossed.

Kev.

That is a lovely car! Do you mind if I ask what colour it is? i.e. is it a Lotus colour and does it have a specific name?

Cheers,

Guy

Thanks Guy,
The colour is Glacier Blue which was a Plus Two colour for a short period.

Far far too cheap IMHO. Matty would bite your arm off at that price I reckon!
