Blue Leather seats - SOLD

Postby Bern » Fri 07.09.2018, 09:31

Blue Leather seats, original Elan seats recovered in blue leather by a previous owner. I've switched back to the original seats so have no need for these.

Also includes matching blue leather door inserts, but I'll need to swap with yours as I don't have any spare ones to replace with!

There is a mark on the passenger base, and the drivers bolster is a bit worn - see photos. Some other small age related marks.

Seat belt fixings not included.

Not really sure of their value, so £150?

I've got the original invoice, were fitted on 20/07/99 at a cost of £517.00 supplied and fitted, by SJ Sportscars.

I'll list them on eBay after the weekend, thought I'd give you guys first chance!

I need a pair of seats to use while I get my originals refurbished. I will pay £200 + postage.
If you prefer then put them on ebay instead then its OK with me.

Hi Dave,

I'm not sure about postage simply because of the size. A few years ago I used one of those couriers that comes to collect, I'll see if they are interested.

Ideally I was hoping for cash on collection, or I can deliver or meet someone somewhere, say within 30 miles of here.

do they have the lotus word stamped at the header ?
they have the correct lines to be OEM but the colors and panel cuts/trim do not match the OEM full leather seats that came with my blue car.

you say they were supplied by SJS, where they marketed as OEM by them ?

They don't have Lotus stamped on them.

I suspect that the covers themselves aren't OEM, but I've listed them in the OEM section because they are the original seats (not modified seats from another car), and will fit straight in without mods to either the car or seats.

I'm pretty sure that Lotus themselves never offered these seat covers.
