Vehicle Description

 Lotus Elan Sprint FHC – One of the last registered Elan Sprints, simply beautiful with correct matching numbers, lovingly and meticulous restored. Confirmed by Lotus as the 59th from last Sprint ever built, supplied when new by Lotus dealer J A Else & Son. Fantastic service history dating back to the Elan’s first free service back in September 1973 when the car had done 564 miles. There are also 30 MOT certificates with the car including the very first MOT back in March 1976. The comprehensive history file contains the original handbook, numerous invoices, old tax discs and photographs. The detailed body off restoration included a new genuine galvanised Lotus chassis, the body was taken back to the gel coat and great attention was given to achieving perfect panel alignment, particularly the doors. The Elan is beautifully painted in its original rare colour of Tawny Metallic over White. In 2015 the engine was overhauled and balanced plus the cylinder head was converted to run on unleaded petrol. With a few notable exceptions such as an upgrade to an alternator and a deep core radiator, the Elan retains its factory originality and is possibly one of the finest examples on the market today - this is one to keep!
