This is a 53 year old vehicle in quite original condition. Matching engine and chassis numbers. Body is in good condition, no major damage but the usual pitting and minor cracks, last repainted in 1994. There is some damage around the driver's side door and the door fit needs adjusting; similarly around the bonnet (hood) and engine compartment; a crack near the right front parking light from bottoming out in the driveway. I've tried to keep the car as original as possible, so none of the 'upgrades' that are common on Elans of this vintage here- rubber rotoflex couplings replaced in 2011, no electric fan or electronic ignition. 1,050 miles since engine rebuild in 2011. I believe the 26,000 miles on the odometer to be correct- I'm the third owner that I'm aware of and I have only put 3,000 miles on the car since 2005.
Interior is good for a 50+ year old car that's never had any refurbishing. The original wood steering wheel is cracked and now taped but serviceable and can easily be refurbished. Walnut dash is in excellent shape. UK radio does not work in the US- I've taken the speakers out but still have them and go with the car. The passenger side window is perspex, not original glass. Passenger side seatbelt strap is torn. Very slight fuel leak from the back carburetor otherwise the engine is running very well. Rev counter reads 1,000 rpm too high and Temp gauge does not work, all other instruments and gauges working. Glove box fiber board needs replacing.
