Castle Combe Autojumble & Weather Forecast

PostPost by: elanfan1 » Wed May 16, 2018 8:54 pm

Hopefully quite a few of you will be attending Castle Combe on 26th May and bringing some parts to sell or trade. The auto jumble there is usually quite good. I thought it might be beneficial to post up some of the items you can bring that others might need.

I’ll start, I can bring:

Elan, Plus 2 Europa toolkit and toolroll
New Sparto repeater lenses (maybe a complete set of lamps)
13 x 4.5J lock on wheel (by arrangement in advance only)
Elan dash rocker switches
Original NOS Chromed elan speaker grille and new speaker.
NOS gearknob with 4 speed gate emblem
Sprint stripes in vinyl
Robinshaw and Ross hardback signed by both authors
Elan dash rocker switches
New cigar lighter elements

Post up your stuff!

If anyone wants any of this stuff I should be parked up near the concrete pad where the jumbles tend to gather I’ll be in a metallic sand Volvo XC70 OX08LUE

Steve,
I could bring a spare Zetec engine with me, but I don’t think that anyone has ever needed one :mrgreen:

I do have an early enamel Lotus nose badge for a late S2 or early S3, also suitable for a Locort, pretty much mint condition £300
Kindest regards

Hopefully someone will rip your arm off for it, pretty much impossible to find these days!

Badge pictures for Graeme and anyone else interested. This type of badge is for an early car in the few short years between approx. 1964 and 1967, it's a lot flatter than the later badges and the font is a lot slimmer. It's a very lightweight thin brass disc quite simply made, probably finished by hand prior to chroming/enamelling. There is very slight scuffing to the enamel next to the L and the chrome has lifted in one small spot to the outer edge

I will have this with me for sale at Castle Combe this weekend, £300 no offers. It will go on Ebay next week if unsold.
