Time has come to say goodbye to one of the Lotuses, and Ii have decided the Elan must go.

It's RHD, has the big valve TC, and was bought from UK Sports Cars in 2006.
Brought to Norway - and have since then been thru a lot of work.

New galvanized sills
New seat belts with anchorages (?)
New brake master and clutch slave
New brake hoses
New bushings on all four corners
New donuts
Engine has been thru a complete rebuild, and also fitted external waterpump
Sandblasted, rustproofed and painted wheels (sorry, chrome went with the rust..)
New Pirelli P3000 tyres

The car is fitted with a webasto sunroof, and has a new galvanized Lotus-build chassis.
The interior is in very good condition.
The body is good, a crack in the left door is the most visible 'fault'. The crack has been repaird and strengtened from the inside, but you can see the crack in the paint. Ought to be grinded and re-painted.

Car has cost me over £20k, but will accept £16k.

Car is in Norway, close to capitol Oslo

(actually, I'm not sure if this is the first waterpump (original type), the first one leaked, so it was exchanged for the outside type instead)
