Hi John,

I assume you mean the wishbones for your 1969 Elan? :poke:

Regards

its a restorable condition. new hood (and possibly frame), possibly just get a ahrdtop, (with petezip's moonroof idea) new seats and some paint work.
not a minor project but one i would be crazy enough to take if i had the right place to work on it... but then again. the sale is for the engine, instead of the whole car.

am i the only one seeing potential ? or maybe im just dreaming :roll:

Steve Strange (Douglas Valley Breakers) would never part with a whole car, so unlikely to be obtainable.

Can't see the damage to the dash, door insides or the boot interior or indeed the fuel tank area. Lots of wiring will need replacing as will all the trim. It's possible the intense heat may have distorted the tub.


Whilst anything is always possible, I suspect this one is a bit too far..........

Moral: don't smoke in a car...… or look after your electrics!

i have refurbished wheels before, easy enough job. just time consuming. all depends on the price tag.
