For Sale: Lotus Elan S3 SE Coupe

Lotus Elan S3 SE Coupe

This lovely Elan S3 SE Coupe is up for sale through a member of the club.

The car is a Lotus Elan S3 SE Coupe, with serial number 36/6858. NSW Historic rego. Bahama Yellow respray (originally blue, then black).

Imported from USA in “project” state in 2010 and lovingly and painstakingly restored in my garage over the next 5 years. Fully photo-documented and costed on a spreadsheet. A full body-off rotisserie restoration onto a new Spyder chassis, including Spyder rollbar and side intrusion. Fully retrimmed. The only totally leak-free twin cam motor I have ever assembled!

Has driven very few miles since completion, only to Kings Day and for its annual health checkup. This car deserves to be driven much more than it is. It’s not perfect, not show quality, but it is very very tidy, and starts on the button, and all electrics work.

I have found that for me, with car restorations, the journey is more fulfilling than the destination. I would be delighted if someone from the Club took over its care and exercised it regularly!

Cost? I’m thinking $65,000 but come and have a look, have a drive and you tell me what its worth.
