Posted: December 2006 - now SOLD
Elva front-engined Formula Junior
Chassis Number: 100/49A
Built 1959 this car has been with the same owner for the past 20 years having spent most of its life in California. It is almost totally original apart from updates required for current vintage/historic racing i.e. roll hoop; fire system; fuel cell; transponder etc.
There is 20 years worth of spares including block; crank; water pump; spare wheel; nose cone mould; a fitted cover; the original fuel tank; original steering wheel; and a custom built lightweight aluminium tilt-bed trailer plus many other items. This car has a recent 1100cc engine with 2” main; Arias pistons; aluminium flywheel; race crank & rods; single DCOE carb; 1275 type close ration transmission; original LH gear change; Elva mag wheels; recent Dunlop tyres; Alfin drums front & rear; rebuilt transfer box; and a bolt in roll hoop (body unmodified). For 2006 the car has received new/rebuilt 12G295 head, valves & 1.5 rockers; a body off repaint; chassis frame inspection and alignment check; full inspection of wheels; new rear hub bearings an UJ’s, plus hard wired AMB transponder.
Last raced November 2006 but as the owner is now approaching a very important birthday, he feels that “being the oldest in the field is not fun any more.”
I have known Kent for probably all of the 20 years he has enjoyed this car, and there is no doubt that this is a superb example of a front-engined Elva Junior fastidiously cared for. Anyone want to buy me a very special Christmas present?
