I didn't even know there was one of these in Houston. I would be calling you up if it weren't for the fact that I am not currently in Houston; stuck out of the country until my company clears me for travel. Why the foam over the radiator? vibration?

The foam seals between the hood and the top of the rad, hopefully forcing the incoming air through (rather than around) the rad. The other edges are sealed with baffles.

Very attractive Elan - GLWS!

I guess I never noticed the foam before. I only saw a Europa once before I bought one. I have only seen one Elan as well. Does this have the DB CV conversion or the original rotoflex?

I am stuck in Norway but my home base is Houston. I am hoping to get back this fall. If you are still looking to sell I will give you a ring.

Stunning Elan Sprint! Best of luck with the sale. My S3 Elan Super Safety is under restoration right now. I hope it turns out as beautiful as yours.

Who ever buys this car will be delighted.

@tbsmith Bummer, I come back from overseas in mid-September. I guess this will be the one that got away.
