Lotus Elan + 2 1967 Metalic Blue with black trim. This incredible example has only had 2 Owners from new. The second fastidious owner has cherished this car for the last 30 years and now it is virtually better than when it left the factory. Although only having covered 42,000 miles from new, this car has been totally rebuilt to the highest standard having had a new galvanised chassis, new body, new wiring loom, rebuilt gearbox, rebuilt axle, new adjustable shock absorbers, new fuel tank and complete new interior including wood veneer dash. The Twin Cam engine was completely rebuilt with new head and upgraded to Lotus Ford Twin Cam Sprint Special Plus spec producing 137 BHP by Pat Thomas of Kelvedon Lotus in 2009. The cost of this alone was £4800. Also fitted with a special manifold and stainless steel exhaust. The list just goes on. Still fitted with the original steering wheel engraved with Colin Chapman's signature and original Pye radio. The huge history file contains all the invoices for well in excess of £20,000 for the work listed, plus much more, and a work shop manual. As one would expect this 2 Owner 42,000 miles Lotus is in exceptional condition in every area and is a dream to drive.
