Ready to race. New Tilton clutch, new external oil pump, head reconditioned with larger valves. S/N 1201 is one of only 2 Trojan Factory Team MK IV-T Sebring cars Elva built. This Courier was approved as Category GT by the FIA. Car was raced almost continuously since arriving in the US in 1966. Restored to vintage racing specs in 2010 and raced in SVRA and VSCDA through 2018. Extra full Kevlar body in SCCA form. Car is now as fast as its ever been in vintage racing.
Ownership transferred from Carl Haas to Fred Opert in Jan 1966 then sold to Willie McKemie in Austin, Texas. Willie, Fred and one other driver raced first at the 1966 Daytona 24 hour race, placing 31st then at Sebring 12 Hour for 25th overall, finishing ahead of some very notable drivers of the day. Willie ran the car in SCCA for several years then it was campaigned by Walt Taylor, Ed and Mark Brannon before being passed on Craig Chima in 2001 who was E Prod Champ in 2002. Since 2010 I have raced with great results in VSCDA and SVRA.
