Offered with comprehensive service history and running well, this 1971 Elan is in good order and ready to use. The bodywork is very good, with good shutlines, and the dark blue paint presents well. The black interior is smart while seat facings and door cards show little signs of wear and the wooden dashboard shows no signs of deterioration or delamination. Everything is present and correct under the bonnet. This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire such an example with scope for some further improvement.
