Hi Brice

I tried to call and left a message. I collect Elan's that no one else
wants, If you have a moment give me a call at 781 545-3699. I would
like to see the Elan sometime if possible, did you get a title or just
a bill of sale with the pair. Did you buy these car from Steve
Mastroianni?
Thanks
Gary

Gary,

Back in the late 70s I bought a S2 Elan that had been damaged by a road
fire. Over the years, some of the pieces were used on one or the other
of my S3 Elans and most of the slavageable body panels were sold off.
But, for the most part, the chassis, which was nice and straight and
solid has remained fairly complete. Originally I was going to
temporarily transplant this frame under my S3-SS while I restored it's
original, but the different angles of the front turrets and some other
considerations led to me permanently replacing the frame w/ a new
galvanized one. I also have the original makers plate S/N etc and the
Ohio title, although I've never put it into my name.

I've recently been looking over my project list and the fact that it
isn't getting much shorter. For years, I had my eye on an early FHC body
to fit to this chassis, but a few years ago after looking at the project
list then, made me decide to abort that project before I bought the
body. Maybe something to do w/ the fact that i have a nice, complete
early FHC project on the list. Maybe today I could be talked out of the
chassis etc. And that could help fund one of the other projects on the
list.
