Is There Anything Sadder Than A Neglected, Unloved Sports Car?

1965 Lotus Elan

Whomever owned this Elan never cared enough to keep it in sound condition, unfortunately. The paintwork needs help, with paint chips and cracks just about everywhere. It sounds relatively good mechanically, but should be gone through completely during the restoration.

Alternatively, one could leave the cosmetics alone, sort the driveability issues, and just drive it as is without fear of additional paint chips. It’d be a great way to get the wonderful Elan driving experience on a bit of a budget compared to the best restored cars. Still..this might be a bit pricey considering the work needed.

It’s on eBay in Philadelphia for $30k or offer.1965 Lotus Elan engine 1965 Lotus Elan interior 1965 Lotus Elan white rear quarter
