Hi all. My S3 FHC is body number 1620 and chassi 36/6055. It is not an Air Flow.
It left the Factory in September 66. Hope this helps.
Take care
Francisco

Thank you to all of you that has contributed. The reason for going down the body number route rather than the VIN route is bodies can be changed, as appears to have happened to unit 6843 if it has a pre-airflow body.

Francisco, your car was the last pre-airflow body I was aware of, but body number 1467 being a air flow has thrown a spanner in the works.

Please keep contibuting with your body numbers so that we can get a better picture of bodies with with air-flow.

Sorry for the confusion, there are too much Elan bodies in the workshop - 1467 is pre-airflow.

I'm certain our Elan Coupe was converted to airflow at some stage.

Body number no 2186, chassis number 36/5286, registered 50 years ago 17/01/1966 Reg no FRR850D.

I would be interested if anyone has any history on this Elan as we've only owned for two years.

Just to add that the body number is 1403. Never knew the body numbers existed until this thread!

Maybe a new aeroflow body shell with those numbers and dates, retaining the VIN/registration?

I guess it could have suffered major damage at some stage and had the shell replaced, as it seems odd for someone to just convert it to airflow!
