Post Chassis difference
Met a new Elva owner, but after some research:
Where the difference between a 100/xx and a 100/xx-A- ?

The saga of chassis numbers .... :roll:

The various ELVA chassis plates "ELVA Engineering Ltd., Bexhill-on-Sea", "ELVA Cars Ltd., Hastings", "ELVA Cars (1961) Ltd., Rye" show model type and "Trojan-Elva, London" Courier plates include engine and gearbox numbers! Trojan used the Hastings or Rye plates for the sports racers, GT160's, and the McLaren-Elva series.

So we have my Mk.1B with #32; a F/J with 100/32 and surprise surprise a Courier with 100/32. So you need to identify the model type as part of an individual car's ID.
The suffix "A" was used on some F/J ID plates to indicate built with an Austin (A35) Rytune power unit, not related to the "chassis". I am not aware of that suffix letter being stamped on any Courier or sports racer ID plate, but nothing would surprise me! :lol:
