Supplied when new by Lotus Cars to the first owner R Walker via Sports Motors Limited in Manchester, this Elan was fitted with black badges throughout after the passing away of the legendary Jim Clarke at Hokkenheim in 1968. There is a Certificate of Provenance and a letter confirming its build date, chassis and engine numbers when new, issued by the archivist at Lotus Cars included.
The car has been in long term ownership of 40-years with the same keeper from 1976 – 2916. Initially as daily run around, it was fully rebuilt in 1996 with a new galvanised chassis including a bare body repaint, a full mechanical, electrical and cosmetic overhaul.
Taken to the South of France when the owners retire there, it remained there for 20-years with little use. The total mileage run on the odometer shown is just over 45,000 miles.
Since returning to the UK, the Elan has had a thorough re commissioning. There is a period radio fitted in working order, the knock on wheels take up the drive without any sign of wear to the peg drives and are shod with a set of Goodyear GT80s in excellent condition.
Some sensible modifications have been made to cope with modern day traffic. These include an alternator conversion and electronic distributor (original retained).
The overall condition can now only be described as very good with very good panel gaps, paint, body and interior. The car is mechanically excellent with good oil pressure, precise handling and all electrics working as they should.
With a current MoT and V5C registration document retaining its original 1968 registration number, a folder containing letters, invoices, old MoT certificates.. This Elan S3 S/E coupe is ready to enjoy. For more information & to view please email or call 07484 895878
