Colin Chapman was one of the greatest post war innovators in the field of formula one and sports racing cars. With seven formula one championships to his name. Like Enzo Ferrari he built road cars to fund his racing program. Many of the technologies of aircraft construction. That he acquired whist serving in the RAF were incorporated into his racing car designs.
In 1962 he launched the Elan roadster. With its light weight design. Steel back bone chassis and fibre glass body. Fitted with the Ford derived twin cam engine, fully independent suspension and four wheel disc brakes. It was a real flyer.

This 1965 model was delivered new to the USA and has been fully developed to 26R specification. The car has a log book and has been raced very successfully. In Targa and other Classic events.

All of the 26R special features are here. Light weight body and chassis. Aluminium alloy differential carrier in a magnesium housing. With a limited slip diff. Frictionless roller spine drive-shafts and magnesium knock on wheels. The twin cam engine produces 160bhp and is coupled to a dog box. Roll cage, intercom, race seats, terra trip and fuel cell are present. A file full of history and bills accompany this car and show conscientious ownership.

Race ready and avaiable at a fraction of the cost to build.
