I Text the guy a few days ago asking a few questions about the Nova and asking for more photos but have never heard back ;o(.... tbh its probably beyond my abilities.

Glasgow. This looks pretty decent. A lot of work, but if you're a handyman?

Another Elam Nova Mk1, but this time assembled, with all glazing fitted and a canopy that opens. At the risk of attracting more vitriol I would say this one was worth a punt :D

I like the white/black trim combination too, much more space-age!

Yea ....Its a wee bit beyond my abilities, and not sure what the guy means by saying it just needs finishing off!!!!!.....does this mean the dreaded IVA would be required ,,,I mean if it has never been on the road or had an MOT,,, as far as im aware this is a nightmare scenario as I believe this is a very strict and costly thing to do....get a kit car thru an IVA ... I have been in touch with the guy to ask him and await his answer....
Unfortunately unlike down south we dont have many Garages up here who would get the car to a rolling , running standard then I would finish it off, with a few nifty ideas I have in my head....not telling in case someone copies me lol....but hey I suppose i need an actual car 1st....watch this space :0}

No bids at 1900 (can't say I'm surprised) now relisted at 99 start with 1 bid. I suspect it will make about 500 - 750 if it sells this time round.

No iva on this one, it is fully registered. Last tax about 1991. A lot of work but get it at the right price and it is a good start. I would phone the guy and ask what is there and if he had a bin price (not 1900). It would be a long winter rebuild for this one and a bit more.

The car is relatively complete, the body hasn't been butchered about, I would certainly say its a great starting point for anyone looking to build a Nova.

Body has been off.
Not bolted down. Makes life easier for the restorer !

With the extra pictures, (and I like the headlights), I would think that the 1900 was a good price for it.

Even the other ebay Nova, if it had pics showing the chassis and the windscreen (which could be a new screen if its not fitted?...) would be a decent buy at 2000+...

Really not sure why people want to buy something for next to nothing, (ok, everyone wants to pay as little as possible, but lets be realistic), as these cars are not common place, and neither of them are looking particularly bad for a project.

Whatever price is paid, it will take many hours and finances to finish any Nova not presently (or recently) on the road, so the initial cost only really reflects the commitment someone intends to put in to it.

To try and build a Nova from new parts (which we know are available) would be far far in excess of the prices being quoted for these; there have been a few recently coming up on ebay, but that has not been the case in the past, with projects for sale being like hen's teeth! `)

I have a set of the fiat headlights that came with my project, but I will not be using, if you are interested?

I'll keep that in mind, although I have other plans at the moment! `)

Looks like the white project Nova has been removed early from eBay. It was sitting at 1015 earlier today .... If it's been sold I hope the new owner makes themselves known on here :)

I offered 1200 obviously not enough ;-(
