Lotus Elan

SOLD - S4 Body - needs TLC - No engine lid

PostPost by: Briggs1 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 12:05 pm

I have an S4 Body - stripped of paint that looks like someone raced it. Front headlight pods are missing and shows signs of having Plexiglas riveted on to cover.

There is some breakage in the front bottom but it is easily repaired. I do not see any other serious breakage.

Includes doors and trunk lid.

Looking for $800

Located in Delaware.

I assume no VIN plate or title either?

I sold an S4 body to someone in New York state in I believe 1998. We were on the way to a suburb of Phily to buy a Lotus Eleven and we met the purchaser at a freeway or turnpike exit ramp. What was the original color? The body I sold had a cracked windscreen frame, and I had taped a broomstick across the top to re-enforce it and keep further damage from occurring.

Any chance this could have been that body?

Not sure of original color.

But the windshield surround is in good shape.

Do not thin this is the same body.

I don't thin so either. The body I had did not have rivet holes around the headlamp openings. I'm just wondering if anything ever came of the body. This was just after I bought my '76 Modus F3 car and I needed the space and my friend Bill wanted a Lotus Eleven, so the trip was very timely.
