Lotus Elan Series 1 And 2 Original Heater Box on 2040-parts.com
Cold Spring Harbor, New York, United States
This spare heater box was amongst a bunch of parts that I acquired when I purchased a 1964 Lotus Elan S1. The parts had been salvaged from another very early Elan in the 1970s and stored ever since. The outer casing has got light surface rust but frankly it should clean up really well and will look great when it's repainted. However, one of the vents has clearly been knocked off and has since disappeared. It's a similar box to a Triumph Spitfire so one should be able to source a new vent and repair it. These Elan heater boxes are very difficult to come by these days. Buyer responsible for shipping costs as it's a bulky item or can be picked up in Cold Spring Harbor, New York. No reserve, no Buy It Now. Get yourself a bargain.

EXECUTIVE EDITOR WES RAYNAL: This car is an old-school hoot with its rear drive and big honkin' V8. The 425-hp figure is magical. That was the power output of the mighty 426 Hemi through the 1960s and '70s.

This week sees the Concept of the Week title go to Alfa Romeo and Bertone for their collaboration on the Alfa Romeo BAT 7, the second addition to the BAT series that began in 1953 and finished in 1955. First seen at the 1954 Turin motor show, this wildly futuristic ‘dream' car came about after Alfa Romeo contacted Giuseppe "Nuccio" Bertone of the Bertone carrozeria to commission three concepts with the lowest possible drag coefficient. The cars were named BAT for "Berlinetta Aerodinamica Tecnica."
Built upon the Alfa Romeo 1900 chassis, the BAT cars featured large rear bumpers and curved fins, and the concepts achieved a drag coefficient of just 0.19 - an impressive result.

Geely is poised to show 39 new vehicles at the forthcoming Auto China 2010 motor show in Beijing, among them will be this new TXN taxi. While most of the new cars on show won't be built around entirely new sheet metal - some will feature new powertrains, for example - the Englon TXN is indeed all-new. Sitting in Geely's Englon range, a sub-brand initially created for the taxicab, the TXN is intended as a replacement for the aging TX4 built by British automaker LTI (as well as at Geely's Shanghai Maples factory).
