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
Lotus first applied the Elan name to its small Ron Hickman-designed two-seat Roadster of 1962. It comprised a steel backbone chassis clothed in a lightweight fiberglass body. Power came from a 1,558cc Cosworth twin-cam version of Ford's ubiquitous 'Kent' engine. With independent suspension all round and four wheel disc brakes, the Elan was both light and nimble. It was, however, lacking in space and in June 1967 Lotus introduced another Hickman masterpiece - the Elan +2 Coupe for those that needed more accommodation. Based on a suitably lengthened/widened version of its smaller sibling's chassis, the newcomer enjoyed better aerodynamics and superior grip (thanks to a 0.30 drag co-efficient and six-inch wider track/fatter tyres). And, as the name suggests, it offered two extra seats - in the company's own words, 'The +2 is designed to carry two adults and two children on a long holiday in comfort'. The +2S version was introduced in 1969 and brought such cosmetic improvements as remote boot release and flush fitting interior door handles, plus an improved exhaust system. The very tidy-looking +2S offered is finished in Silver and trimmed in Black. It was evidently the subject of a re

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
