Lotus Elan Series 1 And 2 Original Heater Box on


Cold Spring Harbor, New York, United States

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.

By Tim Pollard Motor Industry 30 June 2010 15:48 Britain's business secretary Vince Cable today fired a warning shot across the bows of the car industry, saying that subsidies would end and warning that the pledged £5000 subsidy off the first electric cars was in peril.'Our starting point is very clear,' he told delegates at an automotive summit arranged by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. 'We've moved on from the era of subsidies. We just have to be realistic about what's affordable.'Cable said the new coalition Conservative-Liberal Government had not yet decided whether or how to implement the new low-carbon vehicle subsidies promised under Labour, which had set aside £250m in initial funding.'It is still actively under consideration,' said Cable.

The Lightning GT is a fresh take on all-electric mobility; a performance car with unabashed sports car proportions. Made from carbon skin draped over the chassis architecture, the dynamic shape features bulging wheelarches and creased feature lines running from front to rear. By combining these classic, British sports car design cues with state of the art battery power and innovative electric motors, the Lightning follows the path of the Tesla Roadster and has been developed with the goal of generating exhilarating performance.

By Lokinen Motor Shows 10 March 2009 12:00 Getting To Base Camp Thannon It had all gone too well. Having failed to secure accommodation near the centre of Geneva, I’d easily managed to get an apartment in the same block as my two forum blogger colleagues, Robbie (1977) and Mark (car4mh). I’d also, purely by chance, managed to get a flight that landed ten minutes before Robby’s flight into Geneva which meant that we could jointly figure out the best way to get the 35k/m from the Airport to Thannon Le Bain, over the border in France and split the cost if necessary.
