PostPost by: jfornarola » Fri Dec 28, 2012 2:24 am

I've decided to complete the project and so it is no longer for sale. Thanks to those who have inquired.


I am selling my 67 Elan project. It is very close to completion but I must part with it.
36/7480, LP9254
Photos are at: http://s1095.beta.photobucket.com/user/ ... tus%20Elan" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Current status: Most electrical work is complete. Low speed on the defrost motor is not working. The engine was run on a dyno and returned about 150HP at 6500rpm with about 123 ft. lbs. Dyno sheet is available.
I recently changed the oil pan and pump to a John McCoy pan and pump. These are installed but the remote oil filter needs to be plumbed.
The interior needs to be completed. A good-condition top is included as are two frames.
frame gusseted and powder coated
New AVO 2.5" coil overs
New Poly bushings front and rear
New Quaife diff with original 3.77 ratio
New gaskets in transmission
New clutch, clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder
New brake master cylinder
New brake hard lines and Stainless flex lines
Brakes rebuilt with new pistons and seals
JRE 10.5:1 pistons
Elgin reground cams to .430 lift @ .290 duration
Dave Bean 4-2-1 header
2.5" oval aluminized exhaust to SpinTech aluminized muffler (straight through which may require a resonator tip).
Dual Webers with Keith Franke Hypo tubes etc.
Gas tank cleaned and sealed. New hard lines installed with stainless flex pipes where needed.
Several sets of door panels and other spare parts.

Needs final tuning, EGT installation, O2 installation, suspension set up, interior (carpet) and side panels (not included) and windshield installed. Other items I was on the look out for: ash tray, jack, wiper arms, glove box handle.
