If you decide to sell your very original car at auction you might want to consider Bring a Trailer's (BaT) auction site. It's very interactive with a large Lotus following and an auction that does not close until two minutes after the last bid so late bidders have an adequate time to respond to the last bid. I have no connections with BaT other than to follow the website each day to look at interesting cars and the read the knowledgeable posts.
Unless you are bold enough to put the car on auction "without reserve," BaT will require a reasonable reserve from you which may be lower than you will accept. Good pictures and plenty of them will help potential bidders. BaT also provides a service where they will hook you up with a professional photographer in your area, for a price of course. Even if you choose not to use BaT, you can peruse their past auctions and see what Elan coupes have sold for so you can set a reasonable reserve on whichever auction site you choose.
I wish you well in getting the most dollars for your car that the present market offers.
