Description for Lotus Elan 1966

Over 80+ detailed pictures on my "hobby" website: "TaylorMadeClassicCars"

1966 (titled 1967) Lotus Elan Coupe "pre-airflow”. A true "barn find”, 81K miles, full engine and rear differential rebuild only 3,500 miles prior, but done back in the 1980's. Engine turns over freely (not frozen) but unable to start currently as starter not installed (but is included). Car was owned in California 1970's and in Texas 1980's. Last on road 1986, but has been in storage ever since. Early Type 36 coupe VIN# 36/5736 Has "matching numbers" original engine #LP5909LBA Lotus twin cam engine with twin Weber carbs, nice original wood steering wheel, 3-ear spinner K/O hubs, comes with a new windshield and windshield surround molding. Car is very complete, original and unmolested with all original equipment. Frame has front upright rust/crack, but another 2nd frame (with its own rust issues) is included. Both frames will need some degree of metal repair work. Car rolls freely, transmission shifts gears, all glass good, stainless steel trim good. A Lotus Certificate of Provenance is included, as well as original Lotus Elan Shop Manual. I can transport to a New York/New Jersey shipping port for an additional fee for overseas buyers if needed.

Please remember that this is an "antique" vehicle 52 years old. It needs total restoration and is consistent with a vehicle with this mileage, age and use. Car is available for pre-bid inspections and I would always encourage and welcome this. I am proud of my 100% excellent feedback score and always try to give accurate descriptions so that there are no surprises or disappointments. I am open and receptive torealisticoffers considering all that is included.

Those with less than ten (10) or negative feedback history do NOT bid unless you contact me and communicate first, otherwise your bids will be retracted and bidder banned from further bidding. The winning bid is NOT a right of first refusal, but a commitment to purchase the vehicle regardless of anything, so a non-refundable deposit via PayPal is required within 24 hours of auction ending and arrangements to be made for pickup of item. Vehicle is listed "for sale" by other venues and media, so I reserve the right to terminate the listing at any time.
