In reply to # 188054 by Shamrock HA...good one, wow 5 grand you say, that's tough. I probably have a good year of body work ahead of me so if I do run factory I have time to save , but i may still have to work some overtime for that kind of cash. Still not out of the question thou.
Well, at $10k I am figuring a new head and gearbox stuff as well. It would cost about $5k to build a good 1275 sprite motor, so it's not that much different costwise. Good luck!

Cheers,
Dan M.

In reply to # 188018 by gladhill1937 And then sometimes there are valid reasons for a V8 in a Healey.
Sure, but my original point was that there are plenty of them already out there if that's what you really want. At this point in time there is just no justification for taking a largely correct car and doing a conversion on it. Now if you had a rusted out car with no driveline, sure, put a Jule chassis under it and convert away.

Cheers,

Speaking of which here is one from EBay that looks pretty nice:

Those bumpers.
The copper tubing that can only be a fuel line.
The hood that doesn't close all the way.

Pretty nice, indeed!

For a conversion that is...
Also has the X part cut from the frame, etc.

Holly crap the x member is gone, how is the frame staying together latterly. I'm amazed the frame isnt folding in. What's with all the gauges, how many things can go wrong that you need that many. Other than that it is a nice looker.

On the gauges, lets see he has separate Oil Pressure and Water Temp gauges, that adds one. Ammeter - totally unnecessary. Oil Temp gauge, very valuable if you ever drive it hard. Hard to see but it looks like a Vacuum gauge, not sure why, but I'm not a V-8 guy. And I think there is a fuel pressure gauge as well, once again very valuable if you ever drive it hard. I am personally planning on adding the 100S Oil Temp gauge and a Smiths Fuel pressure gauge to my BN1.

It's in good shape and is already cracked.

Michael,

I always loved the Elva Courier, the rarity factor is of the charts, and amazingly you have two! Even a lot of Brit Car folk that I've talked to have never heard of them. I had a Lotus Super 7 that is rare but the Courier seems to be rarer than that. I'd love to see some pics.

Kevin--

The Elva Courier was built as a production car, though the ultimate destination for many was the track due to their good handling and relatively high power to weight ratio. OTOH the Elva MK IV sports racer was designed from the get-go as a race car and has a space frame chassis. About the only thing they share is a nameplate, though both originally came with MGA transmissions and BMC A differentials.

Here's a pic of both of them on the track at Summit Point, WV with my son driving the Courier. There is some commonality in appearance.

BTW the Courier is about to go on the market and is truly race-ready. Contact me by PM if you are interested.
