Time Capsule Elan Knock Off Wheels for Sale

PostPost by: 1owner69Elan » Tue Jun 05, 2018 1:14 am

I have five (5) original Elan knock off wheels for sale, recently removed from my one-owner 1969 S4 SE DHC (Federal). They are in excellent condition. I have converted to 26r hubs and wheels and thus have no further need for the wheels.

I had the wheels checked professionally today for trueness (roundness, run-out):

1. All the wheels are perfectly round
2. There is a small (negligible) amount of runout on three of the rims. The shop said that these were very minor but did mark the locations with chalk. They further said the amount is so small that there is no issue fitting or balancing tires.

The wheels have been in my possession since I picked up my Elan at the Hethel factory in 1969. No damage. No cracks or dings. No accidents. No elongation of pin holes. No rust.

The car (with the wheels) has lived its life in the benign California climate. The wheels have never seen road salt or snow. And very little rain for that matter.

The car has always been garaged and not subject to damp. The car has never been raced or subjected to stressing. I used tubeless tires on these wheels with no sealing problems.

The wheels can be used straightaway. There is no refurbishment or repair required. But, for an absolute pristine look perhaps could be resprayed but not necessary.

$500 USD (for 5 wheels), not including shipping from California

I will pay $500. That was the asking price. First one to claim them based on time-stamp should be the one who gets them at the asking price. Otherwise you should have stated it is an auction up front.

Sorry all for the confusion. I am a bit of a novice in selling things on the internet.

I have contacted the person from whom I received the first offer for the wheels (in the form of a PM). Assuming they follow through at the stated price ($500) plus shipping(at cost) the wheels are now SOLD.

If for some reason that deal does not go through, I will go to the next person in time on the list and offer them the wheels at the same price.
