1972 Lotus Elan Plus 2S 130 Coupe Project (VIN: 72020254N), lightweight (1,530 pounds), nimble and outrageously fun to drive - the Lotus Elan Plus 2 is the epitome of Colin Chapmans belief that light weight will trip huge horsepower every time. The Lotus Elan was the first Lotus road car to use a steel backbone chassis with a fiberglass body. This style of construction was to be repeated in subsequent Lotus models for nearly three decades and when hired to help develop the DeLorean DMC-12. The Elan chassis was also the design inspiration for the Mazda Miata and Toyota 2000GT. The Elan was technologically advanced with a DOHC 1,558 cc engine, four-wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and 4-wheel independent suspension. Gordon Murray, designer of the McLaren F1 supercar, reportedly said that his only disappointment with the McLaren F1 was that he could not give it the perfect steering of the Lotus Elan. This is a half restored project vehicle that needs paint, the interior installed and the engine finished (it needs a cylinder head and there is a Weber or Stromberg head available at an extra cost), all parts come with the car and the chassis is gorgeous - completely powder coated and restored, incl brakes, suspension, rear differential and new rims / tires. The 711M tall block engine has been fully rebuilt as well as the transmission and differential. Put your Elan body / interior on this chassis, turn it into a track car or restore it to factory condition! You can finish this Elan in any exterior and interior color you choose. Comes with a clear Indiana title. Offered at $11,900.00 / best offer. Call or text Brian @ (812) 760-5513 - Evansville, IN 47715.
