RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner, Lotus Elan +2, WGT 3G...

A highly original Lotus Elan +2
Details as follows (from factory archivist):
Chassis No: 50/0863
Dispatched from Lotus on 23rd August 1968 as a kit (separate engine, gearbox and body for tax purposes)
First registered in September 1968

Notes and invoices in the history file, show that the car was purchased by the present owner having been recommissioned by a marque specialist following a period of time in storage. Prior to that the car was fitted with a new Spyder chassis, which remains in very good condition, and the engine, gearbox and diff were also rebuilt. The engine was lightened and balanced and fitted with a fast-road ‘CPL2’ cam and 355 diff. WGT 3G is driving strongly, the benefit of a rolling road setup just a year (and only 600 miles) ago, and regular maintenance, recently by ourselves.

  • History file, including:
  • Original owner’s handbook
  • Lotus Elan +2 Workshop Manual
  • Previous MoT test certificates
  • Some old tax discs
  • Receipts/invoices (back to 1974)
  • Tax to 31 May 15
  • MoT test to Sept 21st 2015 (no advisories)

A well-cared for Elan +2 which has a very original interior, including instruments, gear knob, trim, Colin Chapman steering wheel etc and receipts for regular maintenance over the years.

This Elan presents an opportunity to purchase a very original, well-maintained car with plenty of history and yet also with scope for improvement. Whilst the GRP body is sound with no obvious sign of cracking or deterioration, the paintwork does detract (earlier micro-blistering) and a respray would transform WGT’s appearance, perhaps also a new carpet set. The new owner may opt to have these items of work carried out before delivery and we would be pleased to provide an estimate for this to be carried out in our bodyshop.
