GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present for your consideration this 1971 Lotus Elan SE Drop HeadCoupe for your consideration. “The Elan very simply represents the sports car developed in tune with the state of the art. It comes closer than anything else on the market to providing a Formula car for ordinary street use. And it fits like a Sprite, goes like a Corvette, and handles like a Formula Junior. Driving it is very simply another sort of automotive experience altogether. Most people tend to come back from their first ride a little bit glassy-eyed..” – stated by the Car and Driver Magazine. As we were going through our detailing process and safety inspection, we took this car for a cruise and were very happy with the results.
The car has been in the same ownership for the last 43 years! The interior remains in good condition and shows well for its age. The car both a convertible boot and a tonneau cover. The car comes with its tool kit, owner's manual and shop manual. The DOHC 4 cylinder runs well and manual transmission functions as it should. The fiberglass body remains in good condition. The black paint is starting to show some age but is in overall good condition. This early Lotus rides on P155/80/R13 tires with 13 inch steel wheels.
