It looks as if the owner has spent a lot of money to make this Elan look as good as it could.
Also doing a cam belt service recently would suggest that it has been looked after mechanically in other areas as well.
The mileage may be a little high for some but if looked after these engines can do 250k.
With prices rising as they are at the moment I can't see this one being around as long as some high milers.
I would recommend having a look if you are serious about finding one as you may have to wait a while before another suitable one appears.

looks nice and £500 less than mine! (but not Norfolk Mustard which I am sure raises the price significantly!!)

Hi usp892

I put a deposit on it at the weekend unseen. Sorry :oops:

I haven't seen it but the advert and chatting to the seller it sounded too good to pass up.

We collect it this weekend. Fingers crossed it is a good un :D

With prices on the rise and good ones few and far between you have to move fast or you will lose out :o

It looks lovely, but then I usually say that about Pacific Blue! :-D
Congratulations on your potential purchase, and I hope it measures up to expectation.
I would recommend doing a "mytextcheck" on any car before setting off to pick it up, but only because I've had my fingers burnt on a car in the past.
For the cost of it, better safe than sorry.

Thanks for the advice.

I have done an HPI on it so all good.
