Priced with a guide of £45,000 to £50,000, the four owner car has covered an unverified 65,611 miles and has been in dry storage since 2005. Its condition is described as being a “little tired” but, as the auction house points out: “Whether this little white Elan interests you as a motoring project or a piece of movie memorabilia, please come and talk to us”.

      Cardiff

      In the early sixties; a pal of mine ( age twenty seven ) and I ( aged twenty ) built TVR and Lotus kit cars for local petrol heads

      In 1964, a legendry local hooligan – Maurice Charles, was selling his ex factory supported D type for either eighteen hundred and fifty pounds in his local car showroom

      Maurice blew up two race engines in practise, failed to enter; so the engine was fine

      My pal couldn’t get finance or insurance on the D type; so he bought a new Elan………

      Charlie Sgonina – a famous local two wheel flyer – drove a DBR 1 ( about twenty millon these days ) on the road and in local sprints

      I bet other of Matthew’s contributors have better sob stories, but I won.t bet much
