Hello; I sourced a 5 speed gearbox for my 1972 Lotus Elan plus II from a 1975 Lotus Elite Type 75.

Just to give you other avenues/choices to pursue...Mark

in case you have not read it already, Victor Hollnagel has written an interesting article on that topic :

make sure you get the Plus2 clutch housing bell as it is different from that on Elites, and the tail end as well (the Elite box itself is not that hard to find, but the two extremities are more scarce and justify 9/10th of the value of the setup). The driveshaft (at least the first segment) may be of use as well, so that you have bits to get it shortened or made for your application.

And if you want to get it overhauled before installing on your car, I understand Graham Boulton is the man, don't let approximate parts dealers get near it (been there, paid dearly to learn).
