Two 1974 Lotus Elite’s for sale
Two 1974 Lotus Elite’s for sale. They are currently sitting in a field in Rush City, Minnesota. Here is what I know.
Car 1 (White): Originally yellow. I have a clear title. Does not run. It was from North Dakota and had been passed down for 1-2 generations. Underside appears rusted. L198ooks complete.
Car 2 (yellow): Found in California. No title. Looks about 90-95% complete. Gas tank in back seat. Underside looks very clean. Buick 3800 V6 installed? I bought from a non-profit, who received the car as a donation bc owner was moving back to England.
This was a project that I wanted to start in 2018, but just no time. I can send a few more pix and go take more pix as needed for a serious buyer. I hope they go to a good home as I am a car buff, who loves older European autos.
Looking for $5,500 obo. AS-IS, I can provide 1 title and bill of sale.

Lotus Elan GTS 26r “Ultimate Road Going Elan”
This car is very well known. Ex- Craig Chima. Purchased from Craig about 2015.
I purchased the car for my friend Ron as I was over “Lotused” at the time. It was the best way so I would not lose it. While Ron had the car, he had Twin Cam Sports Cars in Sarasota, FL put in the Bean cartridge water pump front cover. When Ron got ready to sell the car, per our friendship I bought it from him.
At the time of our purchase, it was described to us and on www.lotuselan.net as follows:
The car was completely disassembled and rebuilt while in Craig’s ownership and was rebuilt using the following Tony Thompson parts:
• New chassis
• New lightweight 26R body
• Complete suspension (upper and lower front a-arms, and lower rear arms - all nickel plated)
• Shocks all around - (adjustable ride height coil-overs with street valving)
• Springs all around
• Front anti roll bar
• Front and rear axles
• Alloy radiator
• Alloy fuel cell (fits in stock location under the wood rear floor)
The car has a Quaife limited-slip diff with 3.9 final drive, CV joints, close-ratio synchro gearbox (2.5 first gear), and I when we bought it, we were told that the the twincam had been freshly rebuilt with probably under 1500 miles on it. The car has been driven less than 500 miles since. The twincam has Dave Bean cams with mild head porting, is 10.5:1 compression so still runs on premium pump gas and should make about 145bhp. The car is on 14" Panasports due to the poor availability of 13" street rubber in the U.S. but sits at stock ride height and while it got new rubber in 2014, and the rubber still looks brand new, I would buy new tires for it. The interior and trunk area are completely carpeted in the close loop black carpet that they did British cars in during the 60's. Car has stock seats that had been recovered under previous ownership. The windshield glass and side windows are perfect, and the soft top assembly has maybe been used 2 or 3 times in the past 7 years. The car is not for everyone (absolute purists) but I agree with the statement when we bought it that it was probably the best driving Elan anywhere. Car has no heater and as with all fuel cells, the fuel gauge is erratic. Car is located in Buffalo NY.
I do have an unfinished lightweight (without rear window) hardtop, a Safety Devices roll cage and a heater unit that could go with the car if the price is right.
Asking $69,500 and open to offers. This is a once-in-a-lifetime car. It is that good. It pains me to sell it, but that is life. Car has been driven very little in the past few years for two reasons. I am fixing a fuel cell vent issue on the car and due to medical issues, I cannot work on old cars any longer. I cant pull engines, change tires, etc etc. I have sold all my old cars except for my Caterham, but who knows I may sell that as well. I will have to stick with newer Lotus cars.

Lotus Elan Plus2
If you are looking to downsize your Lotus collection and need to sell that Elan Plus2 you meant to work on, but never found the time. I can help!
I’m looking for an Elan Plus2, preferably a Plus2S, but really any Plus2 for restoration. It would be good if it was running but needed repair, paint and general tidying up. A non-runner is not out of the question. Please contact email@example.com
