Yep bought and restored by Howard Wiltshire - I thought it was mono white now but happy to be corrected. The photo is deceptive the car was very much Lilac rather than Pink

It used to be owned by Mandy, wife of Simon Hadfield the famed historic racing driver. Mandy and the Elan are on the front cover of one edition of Chris Harvey's book.
