Gordon,

I'm sad to see you putting the car up for sale, but know its been the most used and enjoyed Elan in Australia. Good luck and to whoever buys this car you will enjoy it.

Gordon missed a few items, went i rebuilt the car it had a new un galvanised chassis, new wiring harness, dashboard, +2 calipers and disks with dual circuit 11/16" master cylinder with remote reservoirs, stainless extractors (copy of FIA).

Cheers

V

Nice pics.
I am looking for the chrome trim pieces on each side of the windows as shown here in your 2nd photo.
I think I have checked all the usual sources.

Thanks

I know the car, a few years ago Gordon kindly took me for a ride in it. The car would make a fabulous addition to any collection and if I didn't already have an S2 I would be sorely tempted.

HI the stainless trims either side of the glass are available form TTR and Type 26 Register amongst others I'm sure. You will need to shape them to fit carefully

Sorry not at this stage David.
I have a stack of spares to be included which will go with the car.

I do have a number of spare cam covers and a twin cam head I will sell separately likely on eBay
