George,

FNM 459E was first registered on the Isle of Man on 20 Apr 67. It is a Type 36 Series 3 SE, with a Unit No in the 62## range and an Engine No in the LP73## range.

In July 2001 it was at auction with H&H. You may wish to contact them to see if you can do an owner audit trail to the current keeper.

You will notice George, that the then owner was fitting a galvanised chassis. Having done that, he, or she, was so disgusted that the car would only turn left, that they parked it up in the garage, and there it has lain till this day.

Alan Barker will be along in a minute :lol:

Oh Alan, I was looking forward to you regaling us, should that be ll, on the virtues of a galvanised chassis :D
You have disappointed me.

PS. I have some fitted to my cars. Only turn right!

Hi Leslie,
if you don't mind me asking how many Elans do you have.
Have you ever owned a Classic TVR by chance and what do you think of them. :roll:
After 40+ years of Lotus i have tried Classic TVRs and they are not too bad :wink: :wink:
