Yes difficult times Mark but not a waste of time as at least a reasonable number of club members are aware of the van and just maybe someone would like to become the caretaker at a future date.  My experience with ELVA enthusiasts suggests that news soon circulates amongst members if of sufficient interest.  Your thoughts on value appreciated and perhaps an advert in the magazine worthwhile in the New Year.  Thanks again.

I would have thought that advertising an old vehicle for sale at this time of year is rather a waste of time. And that Spring would have been a better time. Also relatively few club members who have access to this site, so perhaps an advert in the Club news mag' might serve you better? As for price, PV vans in good restored order were being offered for sale a few years back for around £3000. But given the current economic state of the country, sad to say, it's is not a good time to be selling anything!

As it seems that 72 people have viewed this 'advert' but there has been no direct contact, I must now consider offering the van elsewhere.  Can anyone kindly provide any advice regarding a realistic price please???  My main interest is to see it go to a good enthusiastic home rather than get involved with haggling over the money.  You guys have the knowledge and so thoughts will be much appreciated. 
With all best wishes for a Happy New Year.  Rog

Thank you for your kind comments.  I will certainly recommend a new owner to join the Club.  The PV has been stored in a dry industrial unit so has remained as per the articles having covered very few miles since.  Have not advertised elsewhere yet as really want it to go to someone who has a genuine interest.  Contact on 07976 234470.  Rog

Hi Elvaman,

Have seen the old article on the original renovation of this vehicle. It looked very smart; if its still in the same condition, it'll be a fine example of this model.

Wish I had the space to keep it myself. Are you advertising it elsewhere? Please keep us posted, as we'd like to invite the new owner/s to join the Club.

In the late 1950's, the ELVA Engineering Co. (later ELVA Cars) used a 'PV' as the race team run-around/transporter for collection of parts, tow race cars to circuits etc. I realised that that original van had long gone to the scrap yard in the sky, but I was fortunate enough to find a good rare example of the exact same early 'PV' which was used to replicate that van as accurately as possible.  Carefully and accurately painted and sign written by professionals, the van remains in a fabulous unspoilt condition, having a current MOT, all original parts etc.  The van has featured in magazines, shows, the London to Brighton run, and several times at the Goodwood Revival.  It is reluctantly offered for sale as I just do not have enough time to get it out and seen on a regular basis. I would love it to go to a true commercial vehicle enthusiast who will be able to show the van and truly enjoy.  Much information available on request.  There are also a few excellent 1/43rd scale models of the Elva Engineering van if you do not have space for the real thing!
