Post Auctioned by Bonhams ELVA MK.1B #100/B/25 .. SOLD!!
Thanks to Bob Engberg for spotting this ..
https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/24956/lot/36/
Interesting text details much of the history of 100/B/25, the car currently in Italy
Description suggests this car one of last of the Mk.1B built which may not be incorrect, but my Mk.1B now also in Italy, is chassis #100/B/32. The Mk.1B was still being built alongside the updated Mk.II version.
The auction estimated price would seem to be somewhat optimistic particularly as there is no reserve, however could be a bargain for what appears to be an unspoilt example of an early ELVA sports racer. But ...
Not necessarily a problem, but these early cars had an aluminium tag stamped with the chassis number riveted to a chassis tube in the engine bay .. this car has had the paint removed from a similar area and the tube stamped.
There were a small number of replica Mk.1B cars built on the US east coast a good number of years ago, but doubt this is one of those ... usual case of caveat emptor!
