This 1969 Lotus Elan + 2 is finished in Satin Black with black leatherette upholstery. Having had just the four previous owners and showing a mere 64,454 miles on the speedometer. The car was subject to a full nut and bolt restoration in 2011 by SMS of Spalding. This included a new Lotus galvanised chassis.
No expense was spared with every component being either rebuilt or replaced. To accompany the car, there is a huge history file, which contains over £50,000 of invoices for restoration and ongoing care.
In 2017, Paul Matty Sports Cars carried out a suspension upgrade with new Koni reduced droop shock absorbers and springs being fitted. In 2018 the Elan was taken to Lakeside Engineering Ltd, Lotus Specialists for a full engine rebuild. With an invoice on file for £5,668 for the rebuild and the car only having covered a mere 1.500 miles since.In March 2019 two brand new Weber 40 DCOE carburettors where fitted, with another £1,400 being spent.
This is one of the best Elan + 2’s that we have seen, and it is extremely well sorted. The bodywork is in outstanding condition and the interior is excellent, including the original steering wheel and radio. The brightwork shows virtually no signs of any pitting and still gives a great shine.
As you would expect, the Lotus drives without fault with the recently rebuilt engine being very strong and displaying excellent oil pressure. It is a fun car to drive which still feels quick even by modern standards. Although MOT exempt, a fresh MOT will be applied upon sale along with the car having a fresh service as well.
