Lotus Elan S4 DHC, 1969.   27,900 miles from new!!   Unbelievable find!  Just 3 owners from new.   Superb original example with such low mileage and brilliantly commissioned by the previous owner.   Original engine in very fine fettle indeed. Smooth and free-revving with plenty of power.  Beautiful delicate handling and precision braking, making this one of the best Series 4 Elans we have driven for several decades.  New clutch kit fitted a few hundred miles ago.  Replaced clutch slave and master cylinder.  New brake master cylinder.  Stainless steel brake hoses.  New prop-shaft U/Js replaced.  Prop-shaft balanced to make this such a smooth Elan to drive. Replacement rear suspension inserts (Konis) and top mounts.   New front shock absorbers and springs.  Tony Thompson aluminium radiator fitted with cooling fan (original parts retained). Waxoyled chassis.  Recent 4 X rotoflex couplings fitted.  Lucas electronic ignition.  Carbs overhauled.   First owner J.D. from Selby 1969 until 2003.  R.W. from York 2003 until 2004.  A.A. from Dorset 2004-2019. This is one of the finest Elans you could ever drive and reminiscent of when we enjoyed them in the late Sixties through to the Seventies before they were mostly restored.   Original soft-top and frame.  Original stickers in the engine bay.  Original running-in sticker on the windscreen and sticker on the speedo.  Original early Workshop Manual.  Original Owner’s Handbook.  Original Service Voucher Book.   Old V5 registration documents from 1969 showing the continuous ownership.  A real collector’s item that can be used on a regular basis due to it being thoroughly well sorted.   Comes MOT’d (although MOT exempt) and old MOT certificates showing the slow progression of the mileage (3k in the last 10 years).  Freshly serviced.  Worldwide delivery facility.
