We are selling a 1960 Elva Courier, the car was first registered 11/11/1960. The current owner acquired the car in the late 1960s and converted the car to race spec and it was raced throughout the 1970s.
It was raced in the Spreckley and Oldham & Crowther Thoroughbred sports car race series in which it had success - collecting wins in its own class, the class national championship and then going on to win the overall national championship in the 3rd year.
The car was raced in the “Coupe de l’age d'or” at Le Mans. The car was then stored. Once again the car was raced in the early 90s by the owners son in the Goldsmith & Young Thoroughbred series ,unfortunately a minor “off” into the Armco damaged the nearside front wing.
The car body has been has been adapted to be removable. The body was consequently removed with the intentions of it being repaired. However, as time progressed the repairs haven't been done. Luckily, the chassis and the rest of the body are undamaged.
The engine has not been run since the mid 90s. Due to this the engine will need to be reconditioned as will the running gear. The owner has come to the conclusion that he doesn't have the time to repair it and would much prefer to have the garage space that it is taking up. He can supply evidence of all results from the races the car has been entered in.
The car is also avalible to be viewed at any time.
