That is a one-page advert which ran in the classic car magazines for quite a while; hardly a "brochure", imho.

I think this is the double sided sheet that CN used to post to interested parties. That said, I can't for the life of me think why anyone would want to pay a tenner plus postage for it :?: :shock:

You can have mine for ?10! I have a copy floating around somewhere along with a old CN catalogue (any offers :D). A friend of mine bought one of the CN body shells years ago. Let's just say, it was not the best quality bodyshell in the world... there were lots of air holes which had to be filled..

Yes, some of the trim they used to sell back in the 80's would have fitted an MGB better than an Elan :lol:

Be nice to MGs now.. :D I have one of those as well (just to help me appreciate the Elan even more).

I actually like MG's. :) It was a comment on the fit of CN trim.
