Looks like I got home from Watkins Glen's vintage Grand Prix with 43 good photos of Bill Branson's Elden Mk10... but I failed to actually meet him and exchange contact information, and I'd really have liked to have seen his car with its cowl removed. I understand these cars had movable pedal assemblies for quick driver changes, eh?
Hello Larry- I've been racing my Elden MK 10, PRH 001 with RMVR, VARA and others for the past several years. It is the prototype for the MK 10 series with some rather "unique" features. I rebuilt it after a rather large shunt in 2009 so I'm somewhat familiar with the restoration process for the cars. Contact me if you wish at firstname.lastname@example.org, I'm in southwest Colorado.
Hi Larry I have just finished restoring my Mk 10c chassis 100/44. This car is ex USA and was apparently stretched 6 inches by the US importer ( along with three others). Mail me on email@example.com
I can't speak for all of the vintage groups, but most Elden 10's are 1972-1974. It appears they all share very similar chassis attributes but differ in radiator placements etc. Please check your local vintage group.
Here in New Mexico it will be accepted.

Hi, I have two Elden Mk8s and a Mk10c in pieces along with a Mk10 Falconer that is owned by a friend. All are still in their original gel coat. I also have a very good supply of spares. I've raced Eldens since 1975 and once worked for the Elden dealer in Southern California. Great cars.
I have a Falconer bodied 1972 Mk10 (C/N 77/10008), a 1972 "boat tail" (C/N 74/10005), a 1973 Falconer bodied Mk10 that I do not have a chassis plate or documentation for and one of those three "stretched" chassis referenced earlier in this thread that I'm not quite sure what to do with.
I met with Brian Hampsheir in the UK in 2004 and saw what was left of the "works" at the time. Unfortunately, he subsequently sold off the molds and patterns to some folks who are not upstanding and he now regrets having done so.
Please feel free to contact me via the email address in my profile.
I recently picked up 1972 PH10B AM72-70 in California and imported it to Canada. I only have logs back to 1996, but know it spent a lot of time around Santa Rosa with CSRG. After extensive preparation work at Huffaker in Sonoma, I'm looking forward to getting it on the track here once the snow finally goes away!
I'd be grateful to anyone who has information about the car's history and is willing to share it.
