    • Sorry for the delay. Vacations and a new house keeps me off the computer and out of the shop. Just had new half shafts constructed. I had rebuilt the hydraulics, masters and calipers. What do you think it is worth? I did have the engine running but it had set for many years and I would assume a full restoration is needed. Limited spares, 2 sets of wheels, steel and Al, Nose mold comes with the car. We are in NM and can help with shipping for cost.

  1. Larry,
    I am another guy interested in the RP16 if you want to sell. I race with a friend in the Seattle area here who runs one that we dragged back from Texas a few years back. That one was $6K and in much better condition but still had to be completely assembled so there are comparisons. If you can give me an idea of the transmission condition we might be able to come up with a price. I would drive to NM to get it and just bring it home on a U-haul cause it is cheaper than the gas penalty for pulling my car hauler down. Email me and we can talk.
    Best Regards, jj

    • Jeff, Sorry for the delay out on a job. I have done some work on the car and started the engine. The half shafts were not with the car so I have had some made here locally and they will require a bit more work to be usable. What do you mean condition of the trans? I believe it is a MK8 and is all there. I have not opened to check the internals but knowing this car was raced then parked I assume it should be useable. I would have to think on a price as this car came from an estate and the family has an interest in seeing the car run again, not sure how to handle that right now, but will chat with them this week.

    • James, Good hearing from you. I hope the Elden works out for you. Where is it? I have been trying to catalog all the cars I come into contact with. I don’t have a US supplier for the body molds. Of the MK 10 there are several body styles, Falconer, MK10A, forward side radiators by front wheel MK10B if I recall and later the MK10C with radiators outboard by the cockpit.

      I was in contact with Len at Marchant and Cox in the UK, http://marchantandcox.co.uk/, and they have the molds for all the Eldens . Their prices seemed fair and I hear the workmanship is very good.
      I need to order a body set for my Mk 8 which lacks a body but it is the bottom of the Que right now. I have in my shop a cockpit mold for a MK8, I haven’t used so not sure how it would come out. Let me know how I can help, lhaynes99@gmail.com.
      Also http://www.eldenracingcars.moonfruit.com/#, is the web site by Peter Hampsheir for the Elden marque and you maybe able to contact him through that.

      Again good luck and would love to track the progresshere on the blog.

      Larry H
