Lotus Elan SE S4 FHC

Lotus Elan SE S4 1970 for sale

In 1969 Mr Johansson from Sweden ordered his Lotus Elan Fixed head coupe SE at Lotus U.K. with sport tyres, airflow ventilation and heated rear window. It was first registered here in Sweden in April 1970 and used by first owner until July 1978 when it was passed on to his brother that is still the owner of the car today!
Over the years the car has received regular maintenance and a few upgrades. Original delivered with Stromberg carburetors and now with Webers. Modified head, cams and headers give today around 145hp. With original rubber flex joints, the car is still very easy to drive even in daily traffic. The body was recently repainted in 2015 and looks stunning! Most of the interior is original and is still in very good shape. Carpet and wood have been replaced. The original wood, original steel wheels and original steering wheel come with the car.

Here is some of the things done over the years.
1980 Rebuild of the engine with new pistons, new aluminium tank, change to head for Webers.
1999-2002 The car was completely overhauled, alla gaskets in the engine where replaced, also bearings and all other parts that wear. Received Cosworth L2 cams and the valves where reworked.

New original galvanized chassi, new windscreen and a lot of interior bits. New instrument facia and new Koni shocks. New wheels from U.K, and new Rotoflex rubber joints.

 The total travel is just over 140,000km and this car is fully documented both in terms of owners and maintenance. Everything works on this car and it is absolutely wonderful to drive.
This is a stunning Lotus Elan SE S4!


Important information

This car was repainted in original colour tone winter 2014/15. It was prepared by the owner accordingly to how one should prepare a fiberglass body for painting (with epoxy primer) unfortunately the painter was mistaken this for a normal primer and has sanded trough this in some areas. This have now caused some small bubbles to appear in the paint on the body only. Doors, hood, trunk are not affected. When it is warm and dry it is hardly noticeable and then it becomes more when are stored in cold damp environment. For this reason we have recently set the price down on this otherwise perfect car with 6000€! This to allow for a future paintjob when a new owner suits this is required. Also for the reason that we feel it is better to have the work done on home ground for a new owner, so one can oversee it is done 100% correct this time.

Please understand the 6000€ deduction have already been made in the price you see here.
