I'm interested in placing a bid on the following 1967 S3 Elan -

I was wondering if anyone on here had any information about the car and had ever possibly owned it?
Its had a colour change from yellow to red and is now been used as a race car.

Appreciate your help.

Thanks, John

I owned and raced the car from 1992 to 2003. it was originally red over white then I had an accident at Brands in 1992 and when I rebuilt it I painted it yellow and re registered it with an age related number. Well after I sold it I think it had another big crash and looks to have been totally rebuilt with new chassis , body ect. so not much left from my ownership.
