The battery ground on my car ('67 Elan SE) runs UP through the trunk by the left rear shock tower and disappears. Maybe it was moved?

I think I have seen mention on here of owners putting the earth lead onto a bolt on the tower to keep it away from the wet (and hence more corrosive) region at the bottom of the boot.
So you may need to remove your parcel shelf to see where it has been earthed.
