Yes, I remember the car when it was first salvaged and recall the damage.

On the way to Brands :shock: , I'd advise that you take a detour via Castle Combe as that may help. :poke:

Welcome to LEC in any event.

Gear lever throw...yes they are all like that, except for those who have fitted the short shift kit!

They may be still available. Do a search for short shift in search box above.

Hmmm, Angie's always liked yellow ones......

It looks pretty original, if not a tad unloved in recent times. I think a good clean up by the garage would get a more favorable return.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Says he has a deposit, but also said he didn't think it was worth 2g even!. I reckon going by what he said to me on the phone it's a bit worse than the pictures make out.

It certainly looks well looked after. Reg. No. looks familiar but Evesham ?? Maybe familiar to Fredjohn, Saltire et al.... ?

Hi All

Looking to purchase my first Elan and seen this for sale on Gumtree

https://www.gumtree.com/p/lotus/lotus-elan-m100-s2/1297865422

Was wondering if anyone knew any history on the car or if anyone had been to see it and passed on it for some reason.

I'm not completely useless when it comes to maintenance but if anyone has any insight or thoughts about this specific car that would be appreciated.

Thanks

Edward

Hi Edward welcome to LEC and your wise choice of car .
I have seen this car advertised before but know very little about it . Being Palacio purple i think its one of 12 made and our Kathryn may no a bit more , also our Muley is a purple owner.
Being Yorkshire based you will hopefully have a few local hands that may be able to view with you .Which is always helpful.

Best of luck with your potential purchase .

Looks a good price but it seems to have struggled at MOT time these past few years :?

Could be a useful.negotiating tool though

Don't know much about this specific car. Palacio is not everyone's cup of tea ~ but there is a certain cachet in owning one. :) Hopefully the MOT issues have been addressed e.g. new tyres? When was the cambelt last changed? Not particularly cheap to have it done professionally. Seems cheap but I think it's been for sale quite a while

1 of 29. Not as exclusive as you thought Clemo!

I don’t know anything about this car, but I have seen it for sale a few times. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, it could just be the colour putting people off. I understand mine was for sale for ages before the previous owner bought it. It seems to be a colour everyone admires, but few would choose to own! Personally I love it!

About right. I was there too this year. I'm not colour blind but I do have a rather unusual taste for colours.

Why was he colour blind just at Silverstone and not all the time?
