15k: Locost: 1965 Lotus Elan Series 1.5
The original 1960s Lotus Elan is a highly collectable roadster and normally can’t be found anywhere near DT prices, unless its been in a few accidents, leaks oil like a teenager’s face and needs regular ‘fiddling’ to keep it running. Find this 1965 Lotus Elan series 1.5 for sale in Des Plaines, IL currently bidding on ebay for $14,009 reserve-not-met with a few hours to go.
Update: Car failed to meet reserve just above $15k.
Don't pretty much all British cars from this era "leak oil like a teenager's face and need regular 'fiddling' to keep them running"?
Should it fail to drip oil there is something terribly wrong with it and it should be inspected immediatly.
The Lotus here is a top notch British sports car, much more than an MG or Triumph BUT that twin cam engine needs more maintenance than Joan Rivers's face. A knowledgeable Lotus tech should be on your speed dial.
