Post ELVA Mk.1B sports racer from 1956 Bonhams Auction ...
A rare example of the very early ELVA Mk.1B with chassis ID as '41' ... see details of the auction entry at https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/26005/lot/249/
Shown as 1955 but I would suggest actually 1956 and the description is not entirely accurate in that not all these vehicles had the Climax FWA unit, as many had the Ford 100E power unit which was upgraded by the use of the LRG/ELVA IOE cylinder head, nearly doubling the power of the Ford engine.
A very effect sports racer in the right hands .. certain worth considering a bid.

I BELIEVE UNSOLD AS DID NOT REACH THE RESERVE ... PERHAPS A RATHER OPTIMISTIC ESTIMATE.
PROBABLY A REALISTIC OFFER WILL SECURE, ASSUMING A DETAILED HISTORY FILE IS AVAILABLE.
