Historically Significant 1960 Elva Mk5 -- your ticket to Monterey or Goodwood
One of thirteen produced -- 1964 Cal Club D Modified champion -- restored to original specifications by Michael Clifford and accepted at various prestigious Vintage/Historic Races.
After a complete restoration to original specifications and several on track tuning sessions, chassis #101, the eleventh of thirteen 1960 Elva Mk5s is ready for sale. This car was the 1964 Cal Club D Modified US National champion and comes with a complete history since purchase.
You will notice that the nose is enclosed as photos from Robert Barker's book of the Mk 5's 1960 debut at Goodwood confirm the way it was delivered from the factory. Car is fitted with a proper 1220 Climax engine, correct four speed gear box, original drum brakes as well as the original frame and suspension (rebuilt of course) and original body (beautifully finished) plus the VSCCA log book.
Michael Clifford took four years to restore the car to a stunning standard, and the car was accepted to the Monterey Historic Races in 2007 and the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix in 2008 and 2009.
This car is ready for the track, car show or museum.
