Hi all,

I was owner of JBC 633 D in Middlesbrough in the early 70's up till 1975. I have photographs and sold it to a repairer in the North west due to a motorcycle crashing into the side in Dunsdale North Yorkshire.

It had cpl2 camshafts and 33 mm chokes. It was I believe 105bhp engine which I overhauled.

Re the Elan Silver Steak. I found the April 67 Autosport advert, but...........

Was there ever a Plus 2 Silver Streak ??

No Kevin, never seen or heard of one. Timeline also would preclude this I feel and the +2 elevated the Elan into the luxury category Andre tried to emulate with his conversion.

Yes I suppose that the Elan silver streak must have confirmed to Lotus that the more luxurious Plus 2 was 'on trend'
