Description

This Elden PH-10A Formula Ford is not only an exceptionally fast model for vintage racing, but this car is also reputed to have never been in an accident. The 1972 Elden chassis is one of if not the most advanced formula fords allowed in vintage racing as the cut-off is through 1972. Also, this model is fitted with the rare original Falconer bodywork that gives this car and aerodynamic advantage over every other vintage FF in both drag and downforce. This model of FF was reputed to have won the inaugural 1972 Formula Ford World Cup at Brands Hatch, England. Also, very exciting as it will fit drivers over 6 feet tall. Recently, the car has been looked over at Putsch Racing with all new fluids, resealed braking system, a new driver harness, new fuel cell foam, new coil, points, condenser, and new battery. The car is running well and the transaxle shifts excellently through all 4 gears. the car is fitted with adjustable Koni coil overs which is the ideal compliment to the Elden's lightweight cast rear uprights and fabricated front racing uprights and nicely plated suspension arms. The brakes are excellent, as is the pedal and it had cockpit adjustable brake bias. Oil pressure is very good and the car cools well. The Ivey built engine runs very strongly with no bad mechanical noises or oil smoke. The car comes with an SVRA logbook, a wooden box of assorted gears ratios and dog rings, one extra set of steel wheels, and an extra set of alloy 4 spoke wheels (looks like Lotus or McLaren style wheels). I do not see any evidence of crash damage or fiberglass repair with this car and in my opinion, this car is the closest you will ever get to going back in time and getting a fantastic FF. I would personally race this car and am very temptedto as it should clean up in vintage formula ford, but my efforts are turning towards running a Nascar and an Indy car next year. If you are considering running the car and may need assistance with your racing endeavors, I invite you to look up Putsch Racing.
