Description 1971 Classic Lotus Elan Plus 2 Very Low Mileage in Great Condition

Lotus Elan plus 2 California spec left hand drive, imported June 2000 to the UK I acquired the Elan on the 14th November 2008 with a shown mileage of 51,234.
For the last 6 1/2 years I have enjoyed driving the Elan regularly, with long trips to La Rochelle and Le Mans, current mileage is 60,123
In my ownership I have upgraded/renewed,
1. Power lite pre engaged starter motor.
2. Super flex top and bottom wishbone bushes.
3. Tony Thompson Racing solid drive shafts.
4. Inertia reel seat belts.
5. Unrated adjustable shocks front and rear.
6. Rear lotocones
7. 3.54 ratio rear diff.
8. Engine mounts.
The previous owner had fitted,
1. Laminated front screen.
2. New wishbones.
3. New wheel bearings.
4. Braided hoses brakes and clutch.
5. Master cylinders brake and clutch.
6. A completely refurbished interior.
I have serviced and greased the Elan regularly, it has the Big Valve head with 40/45 psi oil pressure showing when hot, I have rebuilt the carbs and currently I am returning around 40 miles per gallon, it has head rests fitted which is a nice touch ( California spec ) still has the original chassis and no rust what so ever including the jacking points, thanks to the dry state it lived in for its first 29 years.
There was a part restoration around 1997, however there is micro blistering and some stress cracks showing in 2015. The engine had a rebuild at the same time and currently consumes around 1 pint of quality 20/50 between services.
