I've bought some good stuff from this seller...he knows his Elans! I'd be interested in some early parts as well, trouble is we'd both probably want the same ones :shock:

John - the whole tacho has rotated clockwise - great way to pretend you have a higher redline than anyone else!

Don't get too excited - it hasn't reached the reserve yet :!:
It was on EBay last week(?) with a starting price of about ?1500 - no bids... :P

The owner has sold a lot of stuff in recent years - some good, some not-so-good... but hey that's EBay for you :lol:

I bought some bits from this guy, he is a nice genuine guy but no mug he will not give this away. I saw this car listed last week so would expect the reserve to be min ?1500.

Have a look at Item number: 120275321999 this looks a better buy as it still has the engine

If I did not have my car 90% complete, I would be tempted. I like the concept of a spyder zetec car but could never bring myself to remove the original engine because of historic/originality concerns.

However, if you buy the car without the engine....................
