I see also a non complete dashboard (instruments switches etc) and could you post more detailed pictures also of engine bay and front and rear underside ? Cheers and thanks

I'll take more pixs in the next few days as they are stored about 15 miles away. The instruments I believe are mostly all there but out of the dash as you have observed. I recall a couple switches missing, not sure which ones, might have some pixs of it before I began the disassembly. You might PM me with an e-mail as it's easier to send multiple images in that manner. Might try dropbox or some other resources once I get them collected. Are you interested in just the FHC or the pair?

Carsten,
Yes it is so far. I believe the original color was BRG. If you like more pictures, PM me your e-mail and I'll provide a dropbox link.

Still for sale. Did not find it earlier as title a bit confusing. 37.500 too high for car's condition.
And description not very complete, although seller provides more information/pictures:
both chassis seems to have surface rust only, DHC engine is out because of low oil pressure and DHC transmission needs rebuild too.

Seller is willing to lower price. A bit of initial emotional attachment here, in October 2017 he will have had 50 years of Elan ownership ... (but not these ones).
I would go for the pair, at least for the FHC (read my signature), but shipping for a non-runner from pacific side of US to Germany and customs and VAT and and and ... price would need drop so low ... a shame.
I would suggest interested buyers in the US contact him again for updated price negotiations ....
If any european buyers wants to buy the DHC, I would add up to the buy the FHC.
1964 S1
1967 S3 DHC (running and boy, it is a joy)
Looking for a LHD FHC in any state for a good price.

OK, I've been re-calibrated on the price, both for $28K and would prefer to sell both at once but would separate. Too much on the plate and tired of storage costs, ready to simplify my life, well maybe a little.
