1960 Elva Courier MkII SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
Elva Courier MKII. This is an original round tube car that has raced extensively in single ownership from 1960 but is road legal and road registered with a V5 in my name.

It currently runs the later BMC engine with warm cam and single side draught Weber mated to the MGA four-speed gearbox.

I re-imported this car from Belgium and have had it extensively recommissioned. Recent work has included a full rebuild of the rear drum brakes and half shafts, a new pedal box, complete front brake overhaul and engine refresh. During this time I had the chassis inspected and engine compression tested and everything was found to be very sound.

This first phase of work was immediately followed by a complete new wiring loom, alternator and ignition system alongside numerous minor improvements to the cockpit controls, all with a mind to making it very useable on a day-to-day basis.

The wheels were also recently shot blasted, repainted and shod with brand new Uniroyal all-weather tyres.

The bodywork is sound but would benefit from minor fibreglass repairs in a couple of unsighted spots and ultimately a new coat of paint. It is very useable as is.

I am only selling the car because I have spent too much in getting it sorted and need funds to put into my wife's business. It's a very rare and special car with an excellent support network in the UK and readily available parts. Couriers are eligible for various historic race series, having competed at Goodwood in period and even as far afield as Sebring and the famous 12 Hours there.

Please feel free to call any time for more information.
