Lotus Elan

Elan Plus 2 Parts For Sale

PostPost by: Elanintheforest » Tue Mar 26, 2019 5:10 pm

I’m having a final clearout of my shrinking hoard of Plus 2 parts.

These are all big bits and are for collection only. I’m near Gloucester in the UK.

First a couple of expensive bits!

A pair of restored door frames with glass.

*************** SOLD*******************


A set of 4 Revolution wheels

************** SOLD*******************

Gearbox for Plus 2, Elan S4 and Sprint.
This is a standard box I bought as a spare probably 15 years ago. It has the facility for a reversing light switch, hence it is suitable for the later 2 seat Elans as well.

It came out of a running car that was being broken for parts, as many were back then. It seemed to work well, but of course it would, at the least, need new gaskets and seals. Offers around £420

3 early doors complete with chrome strips, hinges, frames, glass and motors

If you’re restoring an early car, or keeping one long term, then these doors have a lot of parts that are now very hard to find for the early cars. Looking for £250 for all 3, or £100 each. One door doesn't have the glass.

Lots of early other parts, including:

Steering rack with extensions (will fit 2 seat Elans as well) £85
Petrol tanks with senders (x2) £40 each
Window motors (both sides) from a late car - £40 the pair
Seat runner frames (x2) £40 the pair
Handbrake trees (x 3) £15 each
Various bodywork metal frames, £10 each
Boot lids (x2) £15 each
Headlamp pods (pair) £40
Early pedal box £40
Boot floor panel for early car with transverse exhaust (a cut from a scrap car) £20
Heater box with motor in very good condition £75
Heater box in poor condition for parts or renovation. £15 ****** SOLD******

As mentioned above, all these bits are for collection only. I also have several boxes of smaller bits that I will go through later, but anybody coming to collect bits can have a rummage first. These bits include door furniture, door frames, eyeball vents, some dash switches, foglamps, early centre console lids, workshop manual, and a lot more I’m sure.

Open to offers on everything …. Spring clean time!! PM me if interested in any of the above.

Hi Mark
I don't suppose that you have an air cleaner body for the Plus 2 BDA ?
The car didn't have one fitted

Hi Kevin
The original air filter was removed when the chassis was ''repaired'' I think, and the aluminium fabricated vacuum tank took it's place. I was going to fit a works-type Escort filter in there (as per photo), but that may need some fettling to clear the bonnet. It uses an air filter element from a V12 XJS, so nice and easy to replace!

I think I would rather use the Plus 2 nose mounted(Ford??) air filter body and cold air feed to Lotus grp airbox.
Car went well at Loton on Saturday, I was slow, but car was fine. It was delivered to me at 4.45pm Friday and on the hill Saturday at 9.30am !!
I had driven it 9 miles at that point !

Great to hear that the car has finally been put back on the road / track after so long. I'm looking forward to catching up and watching her go!

Sorry, obviously I messed that up!!

I'm enquiring as to whether the right hand door is still for sale and do you have pictures of its other side?

Thanks
