Elva only made a handfull of these cars so this is a very rare car

I bought it with the intention of building a historic racing car. I like the idea of the roll cage being hidden away in the coupe body and the MG engine has become very tuneable

The car was absolutely complete when I bought it but the chassis is very rusty.

I carefully stripped the car and removed the body from the chassis which would have been the first step to making a virtually new chassis

In the meantime I managed to buy an Ex. works lightweight TVR which was a lot more money so I decided to concentrate on the TVR project.

I have decided to try my luck on Ebay

If the car sells and I have to take a loss that will be fine. if not does anybody know of someone who makes new chassis for these cars. This will be the hardest part of the job

 and I would then consider finishing the project.

It has a V5 and the original Trojan chassis plate

Trojan took over Elva and built the first few cars from the original Elva Company parts. this is one of those cars

Apparently the later Trojan cars were not as good from the point of view of racing

There is a marvellous Elva book you can now buy which has all the indormation you would need to know about these cars

It is written by Janos Wimpffen

I am not going to be too disappointed if I have to finish this project as it will undoubtedly be a really good car and guarenteed invitations and entries to some of the best meetings

I would strongly recommend viewing before bidding. to make arrangements please telephone 01844 339665 weekdays between 8. 30am and 4. 30pm

Buyer must collect or we maybe able to deliver at a cost
