Where can I sell a classic Lotus Elan in need of restoration?

I have a very early 1967 Lotus Elan +2 that I bought in 1979, Chassis Number 50/0111. In 1984 I did a major renovation/restoration, fitting a new galvanised chassis etc, but got married in 1986 and ran out of time, money and inclination to work on the car. It was then put, under cover, across the back of the garage where it has remained, neglected for the past 25 years to be my retirement project. I am now partially retired, working just two days a week, but find I still don’t have the time, money, inclination or skills now to get the Elan fit and well again. Can you please advise the best way to sell her on to a good home.

Answered by Honest John - the next auction is at Brooklands on 31 August. The last reader I advised to put a part-restored car through Historics got nearly three times what he thought he would get.
