  7. Yes , I bought it last year from a member on here . And it was running not long before I bought it . I bought a few projects last year , but due to poor health have decided to dwindle them down to one or two . I sold a lovely S1 just before xmas , a burgandy one . I put the white S2 on Ebay to test the waters . Its a good car and the S2 is becoming rare now . But as a non runner it failed to create much interest ,so I ended the listing . I would like to get it running , but as I said due to health problems , it looks like I may have to sub this out , or sell as is . regards Lee
  8. Hi All , Looking for some expert help from you all . I have an S2 elite ( non runner ( , and a 2.2 LC 85 Excel , runner . I want to see if i can get the elite running , using parts from the excel to see the state of the engine . Are the ignition systems the same ? . I have fuel up to the carbs with clean petrol , but weak spark and not starting . Before I go out and replace everything at significant cost . Does anyone know if I can tranfer parts over from the two cars . Many Thanks in Anticipation Regards Lee
  9. that was my elite , as a new ebayer , I couldnt list above 1 k , so thought that I could start low and see how it whent . Unfortunately buyers thought they were gonna steel for a few hundred quid . Probably my fault not theres . Still for sale I wont 4k , considering the good body , good chassis and good interior . I thinks its a bargain . I want to do a nut and bolt resto and this is too good for this . ##Lee
  10. thanks Tony , yes , as i said before , its been a rubbish couple of years . now time get these cars back on the road . We will meet up soon , have you seen the excel and europa under cover in kingsthorpe . I live in pitsford and drive past most days but havent managed to bump into the owner . i have your number now .speak soon
  11. Hi All , thought would post a couple of the S1 purchased in the summer . When ive had a move about , i will post some pics of the S22 Elite I purchased from John Hazel . But Im sure long term members will know the car . I am in a bit of quandry . my initial plan was to buy an elite or eclat to nut and bolt restore . I now have this S1 that needs recomissioning rather than restoring . I have read through some old paperwork , and it appears that the car was in not bad nick in the ninteties but , the PO decided to have it restored . it had a respray in rollsroyce burgandy , a replacement spyder chassis and a full retrim ( letters from trimmer in the states regarding new old stock material . it then seems to have been dry stored since It seems too good to mess about with . Does anyone recognise the car ? thanks Lee
  12. it seems a bit steep on price and considering where it is in the country . that might put some people off . may be worth a cheeky low bid ?
  13. hi all , Well after a challenging 12 months since i struck the deal with john " THE NUT " Hazel . The Elite S2 is here in its new home on the outskirts of Northamptonshire . Lock down , poor health and job changes , protracted the process , but with Johns help and patience we finally got there . During this time I also bought an S1 Elite . I will post pictures soon and may be asking lots of questions ? . Thanks Lee
  14. yes i think i have been slightly naieve . Got hooked in by my enthusiasm . Ten gran is probably was its worth . I expect its too be sale fore a while unless someone with more money thank sense wants to take it on . I will keep you all updated , you never know ? . Kindest Regards Lee
  15. Hi All , i had another look today and im not sure , The owner is now saying he has had other offers nearer to 14 grand , I think he hooked me in with the cheap price , that would have stretched me anyway . I have told him i will leave it for now . And if he cant get rid I would probably have another look . I runs ok but the right bank has a hint of smoke . This would have been a cheap car as an investment , but looks like i need to curb my enthusiasm . thanks for the information and replys chaps. Lee
  16. thank chaps , will let you know how i get on Regards Lee
  17. Thanks for the rely , he is asking ten grand , just passed its mot and body looks straight and engine sound good with no smoke . He has been honest with me and said he has kept it going on a shoe shring , cheap tyres , one fuel tank blocked off as leaking and hole cut in body to replace alternator . Some electrics not working , wipers , fuel gauge and rear lights ? , is it worth a punt ? . Even as a breaker
  18. Hi All , I am a fan of the elite , ecat and excel and have owned a few . Getting back in the game and have just bought an elite s2 . Chatting to a friend about the car and as these things go . He mentioned a friend of a friend ( you know the score . has a v8 lotus on a 96 plate for sale . I have looked at it and it looks fairly strait , but the owner of the last 7 years has kept it legal but not given it a lot of love . I know its a long shot , but what do you think this car would be worth ? . I know this is a how long is a piece of string question , but what would a low of the low v8 price be in the current climate . Thanks Lee
  19. interesting , need to see a complete car in the flesh to make call . I will visit mike at lotus bits and ask him . I have secured a car once the lock down has finished . And today when speaking to a mate about something completely unrelated , he mentioned an elite s1 that has been sat at his farm only 10 miles away from my home . I am looking at it tomorrow . I think the idea of later oz wheels came from a book i had that showed a section on lotus bits . It showed a yellow s1 eclat with oz wheels i think , has anyone got this book ? . regards lee
  20. thanks for the replys chaps . I will update on my search for a car . I am really kickingg myself for for selling the cars . I sold the last one , a reasonably good car that ran but just needed recoming . It was a late k reg excel se and i sold it for 3and a half grand . Regards Lee
  21. Hi All , How common is the elite onto excel conversion . I visited Lotus bits last week as i am looking to get back in the game , Mr Taylor was very generous with his time as always , and said that he has done the conver alot . I have searched and could not find any pic or details of completed cars . Are these owners not on the forum or shy ? . Has anyone got a picture of the above conversion with the latest se oz wheels ? . This is the look i am going for , I think Thanks Lee
  22. anything really . I have a few ideas and probably dont want complete originality . Interesting , have you a car that could be for sale . Thanks Lee. [email protected]
