Elva 100 Formula Junior 1959 for sale. Your chance to acquire and enjoy this stunning car and to be part of one of the best organised and most competitive historic championships. This car is eligible for both the UK including front-engine-only rounds and the European Lurani series. French blue with white nose & wheels. Superb and ready to race. New car forces sale.
In the last two seasons, the car has benefitted from new rear hub carriers, completely overhauled running gear, new brakes, new wishbones, new fire system, full chassis check and rollover bar. Currently running a very strong 1098 Swiftune engine on Webers (SU's included if required)
This Elva 100 has a good history including the Goodwood Revival and Pau and has recently raced on the Brands GP, the Silverstone GP and most of the UK club circuits. Current HTP papers.
This beautiful example of the Elva 100 was sold from the Hastings factory to "J. Smith" as an export specification car (hence the export spec wheels) and shipped to the United States. It was brought back to the UK by John Harper in 1981 and later sold to P. Bowker in 1983. It then went overseas again with Alessandro Ripamont, and from Italy moved to Switzerland to the ownership of Colin Ruffell. Colin then moved to Australia and so the car raced there until yet again returning to the UK via Chris Alford. It then went to John Quenby CEO of the MSA, who raced the car extensively across Europe who then sold the car to Mike Ketcher in 2004. Mike embarked on a total rebuild (full photographic record) which included the Swiftune engine and the new roll bar.
This Elva 100 has great potential and would be eligible for a Goodwood entry in 2012 and is priced to include a Brian James box trailer and a host of spares - including bodywork.
