Description

Elfin cars were produced in Australia from 1959 to 1983 and at one stage were the largest racing car manufacturer in the southern hemisphere. They have always competed on level terms with Brabhams and Lotus. The Monos were produced from 1964 to 69 with a total of only 19 made. This model on offer was one of the last and therefore has all the final developments. It has excellent early history and a complete history is documented via the Confederation of Australian Motor Sports (FIA affiliate) paperwork. The current owner restored the car 5 years ago with no expense spared. The 1600cc Ford twin cam engine, with a new cylinder head and 48mm Webers, has been developed by the best to achieve well over 200 reliable HP, dyno sheet provided. A brand new Hewland 5 speed Mk5 with LSD transaxle was built up by Pete Smith in the UK. A total of 30 ratios are included. Many spares include painted bodywork and body moulds.Two sets of wheels and tyres. This car has enjoyed significant success, with reliability, in Australian historic events.
