"Great opportunity to own an iconic lotus, parts are cheap and with a fiber glass body its easy to maintain. With some TLC it will be back on the road for the summer."


The car has been in a classic car collections for many years, driven on 62 miles since its last MOT in 1979 according to the Swedish MOT and mileage. The need car needs a new registration as it not been MOTED since 1979 and has dropped out of the Swedish system. Perfect summer car and still quick compared to modern cars.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Starts and runs, needs a new exhaust system, small leak from the radiator and needs a full service. Wheel and tires are ok. Update the car now runs well and stops, also found the roof although it worn. Now upgraded its score to 3.

  • Interior condition:

    Nice and original leatherette interior, good mats, dashboard and door cards. Complete and fresh interior overall.

  • Exterior condition:

    Repainted many years ago, was probably originally orange and white 2 tone, some crows feet in the fiberglass, but not damaged. Soft top roof is missing.

  • General condition:

    The car needs some renovation work and servicing, its a great investment car. I would fix the mechanical parts and just drive as it is.

Facts about the model

The Lotus Elan was the first Lotus road car to use a steel backbone chassis with a fibreglass body. This style of construction was to be repeated in subsequent Lotus models for nearly three decades. At approximately 1,500 lb (680 kg), the Elan embodied Colin Chapman's minimum weight design philosophy. The Elan was technologically advanced with a DOHC 1,558 cc engine, four-wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and 4-wheel independent suspension.
