Lotus Elan

SOLD SOLD SOLD 1969 Elan FHC UPDATED FOR SALE

PostPost by: DABARTH » Fri Nov 20, 2015 10:31 pm

Apologies for not knowing how to delete previous posts. Now officially for sale as the chance of finding a +2 trade seems slim to none. Love this car, just want something different. Work fully detailed in previous post, but extensive - many year, frame off "resto-mod". Most things in and on the car touched, improved and/or replaced. Tremendous driver. Wonderful noise. Local award winner for "BEST LOTUS". Bumpers just professionally refinished in correct silver, and the wheels media blasted and powder coated to look the same. Insured for $30K.

Thanks for the time and consideration.

It did.

The previous owner who did a near 7 year body off restoration had made some personal stylistic choices - including those. Everything was done to an incredibly high level, but I had the wheels blasted and powder coated, and just this past week had the bumpers removed, prepped, and painted a more correct silver.

Regards,

Aaron

I watched Charlie Betz working on this car for years(by my count it was 25+)! A word of thanks should go to his friend Jeff W. for his support towards keeping him going and keeping the quality level where it should be. John (another old MN lotus Elan nut)
