Long Stored Lotus – 1967 Lotus Elan SE

In addition to its Twin Cam engine with side-draft Weber Carburetors, rust free frame, and CV joint axle upgrade, this 1967 Lotus Elan SE’s best feature might be its low, 47,000 original miles. The seller claims that the British roadster was owned until recently by a 90-year-old gentleman who kept the car in climate controlled storage for the past 42 years and, because of this, every surface with the exception of an older repaint is original. Photos show the Elan to be in fantastic condition and we love the color-matched knock off wheels. We also don’t mind the fixed window frames as they keep the windows from bending out at speed and funneling air and rain into the cabin. With many Lotus Elans living a hard life, it’s rare to find an original so well cared for and ready for continued use. Find it for sale here on eBay in Middlefield, Massachusetts.
