1959 Elva Formula Junior
This Elva Jr was the subject of a full bare frame restoration in 1992 / 1994, and has had little use since. The frame has been straightened and repaired with new mild steel tubing. Most of the suspension pieces and brackets were made new. The body has been stripped and repainted and all interior aluminum panels replaced. All the mechanicals have been rebuilt.
It has a race spec 998cc BMC motor, twin 1 1/2” SU’s; Ribcase 4sp; drop gear housing on the Morris / Sprite differential, fuel cell, fire system plumbed(no bottle), 5 point belts, roll bar and adjustable seat for different drivers. The old story "too many cars, to little time" applies here as the car was run in 3 events only, in 1995. It has been in heated, dry storage since then with it’s fuel and antifreeze drained. It will need a new battery, carbs cleaned/rebuilt, oil changed, fuel and coolant added to run.
The car comes with an extensive spares package including suspension pieces, brake kits etc; along with any original parts replaced or remade and all photos taken during restoration.
$35,000 US for all.
