This ad appeared in the Lime Rock program and in the May, 1958 Sports Car Illustrated magazine that also had the MK II road test.

Advertisement ca. 1958 A MK III is shown along with a Courier. The "Vogue Motors" in Chicago was that of Burdette Martin. The Dallas dealer was "Bo Crim" (can someone verify this?).

Millard "Rip" Ripley owned a car dealership in New York and drove this MK IIb at Sebring in 1958, and joined us for the 2008 Elva Anniversary at Sebring.

Ran across this photo in one of the 1990's "Elva Newsletter" being published in the US. The ad was for a new Harley-Davidson. I haven't been able to locate the race that included a #91 Elva MK 7 at Road America, seen in the background. Maybe someone can?

Beginning in 1991 or thereabouts, Lee Brenneison of Berea, Ohio, edited a Newsletter for the "Elva Owners of America." He asked for contributions showing Elva ads, and printed this one in Vol IV, No, 1 of the newsletter. The ad must be from around 1960.

Carl Haas imported Elvas and here is an ad from ca. 1963(?). It was reproduced in EOA Newsletter Vol.4, No.2 (1994):

Domenic Ravesi was a Austin-Healey racer in New England in the mid-1950-'s and then a renown cam grinder. He also sold Elvas and here is a small ad that appeared in Sports Cars Illustrated in 1958.

And something makes me think Ravesi had the first Lotus MK VI in the US.

A 1964 ad for the Elva Courier MK IV. Amazing number of dealers listed.

The Harley Elvason ad is not 1963, the 1963 car had a different rollbar. I believe it might be car 70P/047 and I suspect it is 1965 or later.

Your submissions have been great. Would you mind sending me higher resolution images of the Harley ad and the Mk VII line drawing. I would be very interested in any Mk VII Elva data you have.

Hope to meet you at the Road American reunion in September.
