A Very Solid Example of Extended Elan Coupé

The Lotus Elan+2 was introduced in 1967 on a longer wheelbase with occasional rear seats; advertised 'for the discerning motorist who requires the renowned Lotus road holding and performance coupled to an attractive two plus two body'. The Elan+2 embodied the Lotus spirit: it was a fast and agile sports coupé, with very elegant lines and combined the performance and reliability of the original Elan with passenger comfort.

A Charming Lotus Elan Ready for Immediate Enjoyment!

0037N offered here comes from lifelong California residency, while most recently in the presence of a notable San Francisco collection. This particular “Blue Plate” Elan presents well in fitting British Racing Green over Black livery with great drivability and overall appearance. Enduring years of ideal climate and storage have the Elan with a beautifully solid body, while retaining all original Triplex glass, chrome and much of the lenses and trim. Glossy older paint compliments the freshened steel wheels with original knockoffs. The cabin displays correct newer upholster throughout with its original wooden dashboard and seat belts. The fitted Abarth steering wheel offers more comfort and driver's entry access over the factory standard. The often plagued door hinge bushings were recently replaced.

The car runs and drives beautifully, thanks to a recent inspection a tune-up. A desirable 831C AX Motorsport Block was installed in 0037N at some point in its life. These thick-walled engines are highly favored among Lotus vintage racers and are scare to come by. All gauges, electric windows and headlight mechanisms are in proper working order, unlike many examples today. Now available for Worldwide purchase and delivery, we offer this wonderful Elan +2 from our Houston, Texas showroom for immediate driven enjoyment.
