Selling the M90 (X100) Elan prototype

Postby arbseven » Fri 04.03.2016, 13:27

I have been working on restoring the one and only M90 (X100) Elan prototype that I purchased years ago at a Lotus auction.

Due to moving to UK for next few years and other commitments I decided it is was worth divesting myself of this project (I already sold of my Lotus street cars - the Evora, Exige in US and Sunbeam in UK). The car is complete and has undergone a complete restoration. But needs final assembly. I have about 1000 photos (jpg) of the steps with detailed records. Everything was working when I started (although Lotus had broken the ignition key in lock and removed a seat - that I replaced).

For anyone wanting a piece of history - this would be a great project to finish with little time. The car is in US in storage.

Serious offers please.

I can send pics and details to anyone or they can look at the following for the before pics - I will add more this weekend.

For gods sake post some pictures! The link only shows the old pre-restoration images. We're dying here.

Someone please buy this and finish it up. It would make an outstanding show car. I've been waiting to see this car completed for many years.
