Pacific blue S2 #253 (SOLD)

Lotus Elan S2 #253, Pacific blue with blue hood, 1994 M-reg, 49,000 miles

Having owned my Elan for 7 ½ years and driven less than 5,500 miles, the car deserves more use than I’m giving it. Very good mechanical and cosmetic condition, it’s ready for Spring (and Castle Combe).

Currently 49,000 miles with MOT to 27-Jun-2018. Pacific blue S2 with blue hood, and half-leather seats. Very original spec – even down to the original supplying dealer’s stickers on the tax disc holder / rear screen / number plates. The tool kit is complete, and very shiny :-) .

Previous 3 owners up to Sep-2010 drove the first 43,700, mainly using Lotus franchised dealers for maintenance. In the last 7 ½ years I have added under 5,500, with three services at Steve Williams Lotus. The last service, in Jun-2016 at 48,337 miles, included cambelt, and alternator and PAS belts. Other replacements in my time have included stainless 2.5” Piper exhaust system (including sports cat), new Cobra alarm / immobilizer, two new dipped and two new main beam units, radiator fan, Hall Effect sensor, and new front Michelin Pilot Sports at 46,800.

There is a small selection of new spares: pair of new A-pillar seals, front rubber ‘lip’, boot seal, radiator fan, orange clips and butterflies.


Good points
Very original, very good condition cosmetically and mechanically
Full history
No outstanding work needed so far as I’m aware

Not so perfect points (all shown in photographs)
Wear-point on hood just beginning to show on one side, but caught some years ago and reinforced inside to prevent further wear.
Small number of bumper or bonnets chips, mostly touched-in
Parking scuffs on alloys, but no serious damage
Minor parking scuff on N/S door, due to someone else, could well polish out but I haven't got round to it
