RESTORED - ORIGINAL BODY, ENGINE & CHASSIS

First Registered on the 16th of April 1970, with the Plates YVF794H' this Lotus Elan is Noted as Being the Last DHC Elan Produced Before the Revised Numbering System in 1970. As a S4 'SE' (Special Equipment), this Elan was Fitted from New With: High Lift Cams, a 4 Branch Tubular Exhaust, a Semi-Close Ratio Gearbox and Pegdrive Center Lock Wheels.

Purchased with Help From Kent Sports Cars in the UK as a High Quality Restoration Project in 1996, this S4 SE Drop Head Coupe was Inspected in the UK Before it's Importation and was Noted as Being in Very Sound Structural Condition, with the Original Underseal still Protecting the Red Oxide Painted Chassis, Signing Off the Report with We are pleased that the chassis is in good condition.

When the Elan Arrived in Fremantle on the 3rd of December 1996, the Lotus was Stripped Down, and the Restoration Process Begun. The Engine, Semi-Close Ratio Gearbox and Differential were Rebuilt by a Specialist Machine Shop, with the Rebuilt 4 Cylinder Uprated Past it's Original 'SE' Specification by way of Larger Valves, Modified Cams, Fully Balanced Rotating Assembly and the Head Gas-Flowed to Optimise Performance, like wise the Drive Shaft's Rubber Donuts were Replaced by CV Joints.

In 2010 the Gentleman who Embarked on the Restoration Gifted the Lotus to his Son, Partially Completed. The Son Embarked on Finishing the then 13 Year Restoration, with the Lotus Obtaining it's First Registration (Club Permit) in 2013.

Following the Return to the Road, the Lotus was Further Improved, with The Healey Factory Commissioned to Redo the Body and Paintwork in 2014, Bringing the Complete Package Up to Meet the Standard Set By the Mechanicals. Continuing the Development after more Miles of Use, the Lotus is Now Fitted with an Alloy Radiator, Twin Thermo Fans and Sport Air Cleaners for Greater Reliability and Ease of Maintenance.

To be Supplied with the S4 SE DHC is a Hardtop Purchased New in 1996, that was Sent with the Elan, but Never Assembled or Fitted, Requiring the Installation of Clamps and Plexiglass to Complete.
