26/4882 owner?

PostPost by: zog » Sat Jan 09, 2016 11:23 pm

I just picked up an original early Elan Owner's instruction and service pamphlet. It shows the orignal owner as a Ricardo Balandra of Santa Cruz California. The engine number is LP3867 which I cross referenced to the chassis of 26/4882.

If anyone knows the current owner of this car I think these books should be with the car. Any Sherlock Holmes out there?
