This car is in the rare colour of Tawny / White one of only 25 Sprints made by the factory in this colour between September – December 1972. It had like most cars a Lotus factory replacement chassis some 8-10 years ago, it has a very original interior and a correct Big Valve engine fitted with Dellorto carburetors as standard. Four new tires are fitted and the wheels are in good condition. In the history file is a Certificate of vehicle Provenance supplied by the Lotus factory confirming the cars original colour and details. It also comes with a letter by Andy Graham giving the cars history from new via the Lotus archives at Group Lotus PLC in 2014.

Chassis Number: 366910 Engine Number: LP7843LBA Number of cylinders: 4 A well-known and competitive rally car in the hands of Drew Wylie, this capable Elan competed successfully in the Circuit of Ireland Rally in its more recognisable red livery with silver centre-stripe when built by Gary Dunlop Motorsport. It was discovered by our vendor in a sorrier state than it was during its rallying heydays. As a result a comprehensive rebuild was undertaken to bring it to GTS Rally Spec incorporating many 26R additions along the way. To begin with the Elan body was removed from the chassis to be fully repainted in Orange with Green bumpers, photographs of which are available to see. The shell was then re-crafted to incorporate Elan 26R front and rear wings and 26R headlights whilst the chassis was stripped, strengthened and repainted black. The all steel twin cam engine was masterfully rebuilt by recognised specialist John Smurthwaite of J.S. Motorsport, Warwickshire at a cost in excess of £7,000 - the resulting dyno sheet readings showing that it is producing as much as 167.5bhp. The gearbox was rebuilt and straight cut to close ratio with magnesium casings and tail shaft, the differential

This stunning Lotus Elan Plus 2 has been owned by one of our regular customers, a classic car collector based in Staffordshire. The Lotus has been driven over 175 miles to us performing superbly in poor weather conditions. The car coped with rush hour M1 traffic heading north and has been proven reliable, usable and a true delight to drive. The owner is now only parting with the car due to his plans to concentrate on a mainly Jaguar collection. The Elan was first registered on 29 th November 1968 but we do not have early history. We do know the car was taken off the road in 1996 and was purchased in 2004 needing a full restoration. The Lotus was then subject of a body off restoration that included a new Lotus galvanised chassis that was painted Black during the rebuild programme. The body was professionally re-sprayed in a low bake oven and the engine was stripped and rebuilt with new piston rings, bearings and seals. The cylinder head was treated to new guides and valves and the carburettors were professionally rebuilt. The gearbox and differential were stripped and rebuilt, the brakes were re-commissioned with new pistons and seals and a new servo fitted. New Spyder drive shafts

1969 Lotus Elan S4 Special Equipment FHC with 26R and other modifications An S4 with some provenance in Scottish Motorsports circles, this Elan was supplied new by the Lotus factory to Dicksons of Perth. In the hands of a Dundee based owner the Elan is understood to have had considerable period competition history mostly in hill-climb and sprint events. A complete rebuild of the car was first contemplated around 2002 and many new parts were purchased then but the project never quite got off the ground. The Elan and its new parts were subsequently acquired by motorsports and restorations specialists, Classic Autosports, who undertook a ground up restoration of the car (concluded in the spring of 2009). The principal features of the car and the detail of that restoration (photographic record available) are as follows:- Complete rebuild around new galvanised Spydersport chassis New suspension parts nickle plated Spydersport upper wishbones replacing standard McPherson struts at rear New Elan coil over shocks with adjustable platforms ( spare set of brand new Spydersport springs may be available with the car) Complete bodywork strip-down to repair all glassfibre imperfections followed
