California Elan!

Postby Grosbard » Fri 14.05.2021, 22:47

Finally a California Elan for sale! And seems mechanically well sorted. If I were open to the color red (which, very unfortunately, I am not), I would already have bought it myself.

But I'm still looking for a California Elan for myself (not red or yellow), so if anybody knows of one, please let me know!

Mine is for sale but is a 49 state car according to the VIN, no idea what the actual differences are between that and a California car.

I had messaged the seller asking about timing belt history- they said they'd check and never got back to me. Crazy that there wasn't even a single bid on the Wheeler Dealer car....

It's really just the MEMCAL that's different I think. Your car seems more tempting all the time.

This red car is now on Facebook Marketplace for $16,495. Been there all week

Dropped the price to $14,800 Canadian because I have a really silly project(s) on the go and need the space+, have a previous M100 owner coming to see the car tomorrow so...

On the upside and assuming I finish the project(s) before I die, the good news is that these poor victims are convertibles (1974 MG Midgets, one has an unknown but tasty A series drivetrain with a fat 40 Weber hanging on the end, the other is a the stock unit but neither will ultimately end up as "stock"

I just wish I could sling the M100 drivetrain there but there would be a 90 degree problem with getting the power to the wheels so one will probably be electric while the other...?

I need to stop doing this - and I will.

Soon...

No, really, soon. :D
