1969 Lotus Elan S2
It might have been cold outside the sale tent, but the buyer of this Elan would have been driving home in a warm glow, safe in the knowledge plenty of work had been carried out in the past 20 years. The well-presented metallic green body was mounted to a galvanised chassis, while a balanced engine would make this the true driver’s car it was when new. The interior was just as smart. A rare treat and unlikely to lose value now or in the foreseeable future.
