Footnotes

  • The drophead coupé version of the Lotus Elan S3 was also available in Special Equipment (SE) specification, in which form it came with a slightly more powerful (115bhp) engine, close-ratio gearbox, higher-geared final drive and servo assistance for the brakes. One of 2,650 S3s produced, this example was used as a daily driver and around ten years ago benefited from engine, gearbox and rear axle rebuilds, seeing little subsequent use. The car was then taken off the road for restoration and dismantled, only for work to stop after the owner moved abroad. He has now returned but other commitments have forced the car's sale. We are advised that all parts appear present with the exception of the windscreen wiper motor. The condition of the original chassis is not known; the body though is in generally good condition, with only minor crazing to the rear deck, while the original seats are described as restorable. It is worthwhile noting that the rare, chromed side window frames are in good order and that the winder motors are present in the doors. A Safety Devices roll cage and a fuel cell bag tank are included in the sale. Offered with Swansea V5 document and sold strictly as viewed, 'VBY 202E' represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire an Elan S3 ripe for restoration to the new owner's personal specification.
