Technical data for 1973 Lotus Elan
You are bidding on a 1970 Lotus Elan 2+2 S2 Coupe. (NOTE: Although this car is listed as a 1973, I was informed today by the UK Lotus Archivist that, based on the VIN, which is 0069-N, this car is actually a 1970 model. I assume it sat in a dealer's showroom for 2 years before it was sold and was then Titled as a '73.)
This car has seen better days but is definitely worth restoring. There are some cracks in the fiberglass here and there, and the right rear was hit by another car, breaking some of that corner off the car. Most of the pieces broken off were saved. (See picture)
The engine is original to the car and the entire engine compartment appears to have never been messed with, as the original air box and other original items are still present. I have not tried to turn the engine over so I don't know if it's stuck or not, but I assume whoever buys the car will be doing a complete engine rebuild anyway.
All the glass is present and in good condition, including the rear window, which has a built-in defroster. The original rear bumper comes with the car as well, and is in good condition.
The frame appears to be in good condition, rust-wise. (See picture of bottom of car.)
I expect payment within 5 days of the end of the auction. The car can be picked up after your check has cleared my bank. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Buyer will be given a Bill of Sale only for this car as Georgia is a non-Title state for cars older than 1985. There is NO TITLE for this car. (EBay does not have an option box for “Bill of Sale Only”, so disregard the “Clear Title” option in their heading.)
