This beautifully presented, top class Lotus Elan +2 S130 4 has spent the past six years with owners on the outskirts of York and has arrived with us in superb condition having been subject of a major mid 1990’s body off restoration. The Lotus was rebuilt using a brand-new galvanised chassis, the body superbly prepared and painted, the interior re-trimmed and the car mechanically rebuilt with many parts re-conditioned, powder coated and carefully re-fitted to the car.
Having covered relatively low mileage since its initial restoration, the last two previous owners over the past six years have carefully detailed and fettled the car, taking it to an exceptional standard. The more recent expenditure has ensured this now aged top quality restored car drives and performs as one would expect if fresh from restoration. Expenditure includes the desirable CV joint driveshaft conversion, new top ball joints, steering rack gaiters, speedometer overhaul and speedo cable, new fuel pump body and gasket, new ignition items, heater fan motor, throttle and bonnet cables, new brake servo, brake master cylinder, new Powerlite starter motor, various new switches, Halogen headlamp kit and very recently the carbs have been stripped and set up with a local specialist.
Since 2013 the Lotus has only covered 1000 miles with as much enjoyment and pleasure taken out of detailing and carefully preparing the car. As result this Elan +2 is incredible to drive with superb, tight handling, a fabulous fit correct and original engine, the gearbox is sweet up and down the gears, brakes are efficient and perfectly balanced, and the car offers impressive performance and lots of fun on the road. The underside matches up to the high standards of its mechanical condition with a stunning, clean chassis, various powder coated components and generally very tidy appearance. The paintwork has a lovely deep finish and importantly has no evidence of crazing giving testament to the quality of work back in the 1990's. The interior is beautifully presented with a nicely aged feel, the engine bay is excellent, wheels and tyres in excellent order ensuring this fabulous Elan Plus Two is ready to use and enjoy.
