ELAN RESTORERS WANTED !

PostPost by: Verve » Tue Mar 24, 2015 4:07 pm

Hi ... If anyone is restoring an Elan (S1-S4 ) and are in need of numerous parts ... feel free to get in touch , as I am in the process of having a mass tidy up , of all my Elan spares collected over the years ...

I have all sorts of stuff ... too much to list ... some of it interesting ( Chapman Steering Wheel , Big Valve Head , Super SE Block ) ... some of it boring ( brakes , driveshafts, dynamo`s , starters etc ) ... some of it pattern only ....

I drive my Sprint Drophead all year round all over the place ... and I would like to see more Elans get back on the road ... so , if I can help with these parts , please get in touch ...

Hopefully I`ll have sorted a lot of the items by the weekend ... and if you are a genuine Elan Nutter ( like me ; ) , you are very welcome to come & have a browse over a cuppa tea ... but please , no wheelers or low ballers ... I want these parts to go to genuine peope doing genuine cars , at very fair prices ; )

Cheers ,

Paul ( Near Retford , Notts. ).

Hi Paul, I'd be interested in a RIGHT side vacuum pod, or at least the large coiled spring that holds the lamps down. Any chance?

Hi Paul

I'm trying to track down a boss for a Chapman wheel (I have a wheel) and the horn unit if you have one per chance.

Many thanks

Hi Guys ,

Thanks for all the messages from around the world ( my computer has about crashed ; ) ... unfortunately I am an old Dinosaur ... & would very much prefer to meet any fellow Elan Restorer face to face ... we can have a cuppa ... I can bore you to death about my Elans ... then you can have a good look at the parts , make a fair offer & take any you want : )

If I itemise everything , take photos , send emails etc ... I`ll be stuck on this computer for another 2 years ... & I`d rather be driving my Elan & give the parts to charity ; )

I will get back in touch where I can .... but meanwhile I must get back in my barn & sort the wonderful junk out ; )

I`ll be back ... & thanks : )

Paul .

Hi Guys ,

I`ve "finally" worked my way through the jammed inbox ( not the parts unfortunately ) ... & I should have been clearer , that I only want to rehome these parts "in person" ... and if anyone can make it ( who I have missed ) , feel free to get back in touch : )

I`m pretty flexible on viewing times ... certainly not a problem on Sunday 12th of April when the Newark Autojumble is on ( I`m only 20 minutes from there ) ... not a problem over the next couple of weeks either ...

Sorry for the delayed responses ... I think I need a holiday now ; )

Cheers ,

Paul .
