History:

This Elva was formally owned and raced by Ewan Paul. It raced from 1963-1964 at Brands Hatch, Silverstone, Oulton Park, and Goodwood International.

The Elva was imported to the US in 1967 and was fitted with Jack Brabham’s 2.5 liter Coventry Climax engine and Jack Knight gearbox, as well as prototype Mk 8 wheels. It was updated to 7S specs in order to run in the USRRC series. The Elva is currently fitted with a fresh Ted Wenz Louts Twincam and Hewland.

It underwent a complete restoration.
