  • Elan ss

    Found a 250 elan ss sitting on a skid at a farm. Motor has compression and spark. Ended up bringing it home for free! Track is good but chassis is tough. Hood smashed up hood to.

        Pretty close. Iv learned its a 73 and its bogey suspension. So im not sure if someone just implanted a 250 twin in a regular elan

          Never had one , but thought it should have a "twin" medallion on hood centre and newer ones had black on them like one

              SS didnt necessarily have sliders. Lots with bogies. Shocks on the skis is one part. On the plastic engine cover it would have had a medallion that said 250 TWIN. Not a whole lot more in the way of markings on them. Decals and thats about it

                If it is a 250 SS, there are some specific things to look for.
                1) 1973 was a 250 twin, only SS with the 250.
                2) It should have a tuned exhaust. A wrap around of sorts
                3) It should have disc brakes
                4) 73s all had bogies, no sliders until 74/75.
                Would be an all yellow hood with a black side decal with SS. Front would have a black bar across the headlights and vents
