1958 Elva Courier Mk1 #100/L-20

This Courier represents one of our shop's most comprehensive restorations. Last registered for the road less than 15 years ago, Courier #100/25L came to our shop as two halves of a body, most of a rusty chassis, and a few suspension pieces. We returned the car to its former glory and then some, becoming one of the cleanest early Couriers on the vintage racing circuit. Recently endowed with MGB power, the car is very competitively raced in small-bore race groups and scored its first overall win in June 2016 at Lime Rock Park!
