The essential 1960s British sports car, the tiny Lotus Elan, remains a benchmark for handling. With its pop-up headlights, curved windshield, and roll-up windows, it was a symbol of Swinging London, immortalized in The Avengers television series.
This Elan has been cared for very well over the years. The car has spent most of its life in Arizona and Florida. It is a rust-free example that has been restored to a beautiful level.
Details on the restoration, upgrades and maintenance:
