Can anyone help me with direct contact info for a Victoria, Australia gent who uses Ebay name Ellingsen44. He has been trying to contact me about the Elto and I think" that Ebay blocked the direct contact.. Or please forward my contact to hin, as barnstormer1 AT cox dot net.. (the actual email address is obvious, with the substitutions of "AT' and "dot", I hope)
This is my Dad's resto-recreation of the Harry McQuinn Elto that won numerous championships circa 1937. McQuinn went on to become Cheif Steward at Indianapolis. He had some running gear parts from it to start with. First photo is from a mid 1980s magazine color feature story they did on it. No modern parts. T-front, T rear, right angle gear box, overhauled Elto engine. All alum body with no filler. Brass radiator. Rest of photos as it sits in our heated and cooled collection room. Could use some freshening up of some of the chrome parts, that can be taken off easily. Asking $25,000
The above is the Post commented on in the previous message. I just brought it up to save anyone making a massive trawl of old messages. I must say the car does look very nice.
