Lotus Elan

1978 Caterham 7 - withdrawn

I am putting my 7 up for sale, and thought I would notify the good folks here as some have identified interest in adding to their Lotus collection, and it is an enthusiast crowd.

Change of mind, hanging onto it.

Hello Ted,
It is the standard cockpit, the long version I don’t believe was even available in ‘78, though I would have to check the books again.
Why outside the forum: well a few reasons...if someone is seriously interested I expect them to readily identify themselves, not a good idea on this public forum, and if / when it were to be listed on a different site I would rather a price not prejudice any bidding. Also because it is not an Elan don’t want to upset the marque specific enthusiasts here since it is after all an Elan site. I believe this is reasonable rationale.
The car needs nothing, I have had, and enjoyed it, a long time; so will expect price to the current market accordingly. I see you have a 7 available on your site, though did not see a price.

Thanks for asking,
Jack
