Wow! An Elan dune buggy. First of those I've seen. I'm betting it doesn't look like that anymore.

The plus 2 has not been taxed since 1987 so its stored in some garage somewhere, exported or has been scrapped :cry:

For the top pic, love the old school slit curtain shutter motion from top to bottom (if I think rightly).

    body-s2-modified-capture.jpg and
    I acquired an Elan bodyshell with some similarities to the one in the first post although the wheel arches are not the same but I suppose could have been changed. The seller was on behalf of a deceased estate and had no information at all about its history or where it came from, does anyone recognise it?

    That’ll be one heck of a speaker in the rear bulkhead!
