Following the inevitable “downsizing” when the kids leave home we are no longer able to garage our beloved Lotus Elan M100, registration number H278 DKR, and the time has come to pass it to a new owner who can give it the care it deserves.
First the bad news:
• The passenger door window has just stopped working.
• The material section on driver’s seat has become unstitched from the leather.
• When it rains, water comes in from either side of the windscreen, (but this should not be a shock to those familiar with the M100).
• The engine management light has had a mind of its own for several years, sometimes on, other times off.
Then the good news:
• The car has been in our family since new with only two registered owners, my brother and my wife.
• Its mileage is 98,598 at the time of typing this.
• MOT valid until 25 Feb. 2022
• Hood in excellent condition
• Higher spec. brakes fitted.
• Car is largely original, (it even has the factory fitted radio cassette player and most of the tool kit).
• New radiator fitted 2019
• Replacement headlamp motor fitted 2020
• Bodywork good, for the age of the car
• Oil pressure excellent
• Original Lotus O.Z wheels in very good condition
• If ever you are feeling a bit down, just take this Lotus for a drive……goodness but it will lift your spirits.
Asking price: £7,500, located in Worcester, Worcestershire.

Hmmm… Thanks Rambo… now, I have two options:

1. Complete a V5C (new keeper registration) or;
2. Complete / or receive a Form D8 (divorce application)

It’s most likely that I’ll get back to you and Mitcham when I’m discharged from hospital :lol:

Cheers

It really is a dilemma and I am in a similar position....does being married for 41 years mean it is too-late to get a pre-nup? :cheers:

I'd suggest posting some photo's on here if you want a quicker sale. A few nice photos are sometimes the icing on the cake

Oh aye, and details of when the cambelt, water pump etc.... were last changed as people will only ask

Good luck

Original? You mean from 1990/91?
If so, probably not a good idea to fire the engine up until replaced.

I understand what you are saying, but now with no facility to do work on the car myself, (hence the reason for sale), I am at the mercy of a local garage and the new owner may prefer to do this work themselves - all part of any future negotiation. However, have just received a quote from SJ Sports and actually the cost of the parts, including the water pump, isn't as bad as I thought, (having had to pay a small fortune for an second hand headlamp lifting motor), so might bite the bullet and get it done.
You do realise the wife will think this is a cunning ploy to not sell the car, still Tb10 has advised which divorce form to look out for!

It does make you think about these cambelt changes though doesn't it ?! Not the first one I have heard of that was still on the original belt !

Hello Mitcham, curious to ask; 4th photo of your car, is there some sort of black rubber or plastic edging on the passenger door window ? If so, does it help with the old ( wet thigh ), syndrome! Please enlighten me, Clive. GLWTS!

Sorry for the late reply regarding the rubber around the top of the windows.
It helped when the car was parked-up, but unfortunately did very little when driving along.
