Pistonheads Elite

Recommended Posts

Smart looking Red Elite on Pistonheads - body line trim in red looks familiar to me though. Sure I have seen it before, was it on Car & Classic not long ago ??

Looks like a lot of effort expended on the car, though personally I reckon removing the body flash lines spoils the look somewhat. The copper vacuum plumbing to the airboxes looks a bit Bob the Builder too.

I saw this car on e-bay a while ago. No MOT, down at Dorset i think. I was gonna have a lok but the auto Elite isnt really my brew. Was only £2000 then. looks like a French mot must add about £5000, need to remember that one!

Cars in France are staggeringly more expensive than they are in the UK.

I think it was on Cars & Classics for about £3,500 a while back. Maybe had more work done on it. That interior is lovely

it is nice but too much unoriginal for me and my money. given the choice i would buy an Elite and restore her myself to original at that price. but good luck to the seller. hope he/she realises that sale price. they are worth it really. DC.

I like the car, not the price. Thats the best interior I have seen in a while.

very expensive...too expensive...but very tidy!!

and the major thing: it has a galvanized chassis (if its true what the seller writes).

wrong steering wheel and gearknob, missing cambelt cover and airfilter box and a critical point:

the waistband trim has been removed and the waistband has been flattened.

some specialists say if you flatten the waistband the body gets weak and more or less the body can be thrown away.

not sure if this is really so critical, but there must be some truth in these statements.
