    For Sale Elden Mk10 Formula Ford Being Sold For Charity

    Background: For the past 13 years Rocky Mountains Vintage Racing (RMVR) has held their annual Race Against Kid’s Cancer race weekend. These events have been dedicated to raising money for the Morgan Adams Foundation (MAF) who is dedicated to sponsoring research into children’s pediatric cancer. Over those years RMVR has raised about $2,000,000 for MAF. Cool, huh?

    A Recent Really Neat Deal:
    Because of this long-term relationship and in a desire to support the club’s fund-raising efforts, one of our generous RMVR members has donated a restored Elden MK10 Formula Ford to MAF. They will sell the car in a Bring-A-Trailer charity auction (i.e. no BaT fee incurred) starting in Mid-July. MAF will get all the proceeds. Neither the car’s donor nor RMVR receive any of the proceeds. It all goes to the MAF.

    Since that auction won’t go “live” until Mid-July, an web page has been created to help inform potential buyers about the car and, of course, to build interest in the coming BaT auction.
    When the actual BaT auction becomes live, we’ll update this posting. But in the meantime, check out the above web page. And if you know anyone shopping for a race-ready FF, please tell them about this posting or send them the link to the web page.

    Or, If you already have a FF, maybe consider entering this annual race weekend. It’s held at High Plains Raceway, a circuit loved by all who race it. (Probably a field of 30+ FFs.)

    Drop me a personal message with any questions.

    Cheers,
    Bob Alder - Denver
    Note: This car is not being sold via this ApexSpeed posting. It will only be sold via the BaT auction.

    Just bumping to remind folks of this upcoming charity auction. Nice race ready FF. It has an RMVR CF logbook, but since it has outboard suspension on BOTH ends, it would qualify as a Vintage FF in most all vintage organizations, even Monoposto. Yes, it's '73 built but clearly a continuation of the '72 cars.

    Since that auction won’t go “live” until Mid-July, an web page has been created to help inform potential buyers about the car and, of course, to build interest in the coming BaT auction.

    We have so much admiration for what you’ve done for charity, Bob.

    We’re always deep in the Rockies that time of year, but will support your cause at some point.

    Awesome work, and this car auction is flat wonderful.

    Hey "ApexSpeedsters." The auctioned Elden FF will be at Children's Hospital (Anschutz hospital area in Aurora, CO) tomorrow if you are interested in seeing it and thinking of bidding when the BaT auction becomes live. We expect that auction to be live next week and we'll post a link here when it does become live.

    Why you ask at the Anschutz medical center, the Children's Hospital? Each year we have "Media Day" there, kids in treatment at the hospital can come out to the parking lot where we set up a Radio Controlled race course. We create racing teams with one of the kids, someone from the local media, and someone from Morgan Adams and race the RC cars. Media Day let's the kids get out hospital for some fun and hopefully the media folks will give RMVR's upcoming Race Against Kids' Cancer some "ink." All good fun. Anyway we'll bring the soon-to-be-auctioned Elden and some other race cars to stir up interest and for the kids to see, sit in, etc.

    In any case, if you have an interest in bidding, please get your bidding credentials up and ready.
    • If you need to review the BaT’s FAQ about how to bid. Get registered and organized well before bidding starts. Don’t be left behind when the checkered flag drops on the auction.


    Cheers,
    Bob Alder, RMVR
    Feel fee to call me with any questions about the Elden.

    We hope! That's the one problem I have with BaT, I don't know why, but they don't tell you exactly when your auction will go live. They seem to do everything else so well, there must be a legit reason!

    Stay tuned! And thanks for your interest.

    We're working with BAT now. We have approved the ad copy, etc. But they tell us when it will actually go alive, hopefully in the next few days. We'll post here ASAP with a link to the auction.

    Thanks for your interest.

    That's great to hear, but for some reason, it doesn't show up in my daily BaT email!

    I think that is because the email was generated a couple of hours ago, before this auction went live. It might be in tomorrow's email.

    Yes, the auction is now live on BAT:
    https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1973-elden-mk10-formula-ford/

    As a reminder, if you plan on bidding, please get your credentials in order before doing so. The auction will last one week, but don't delay in getting signed up to bid. Those instruction areHERE.

    In addition to the BAT auction site. our previous info webpage on the Elden FF is still available. It was written more for the FF cognoscenti as opposed to the requisite BAT ingo in the BAT posting. Read both. Feel free to post any comments or questions on the BAT site and we'll answer quickly. Or, feel free to call 303-981-6364 if you have more complex questions.

    Thanks for looking and hopefully considering bidding. Should be fun.

    For the benefit of BAT'ers who are not on Apexspeed, you might consider posting that link to the previous info on the BAT auction.

    Typically, they are. Some sellers do a long post early in the auction, with their description of the particular car. And in their words, not the BAT formulaic language. It seems to help drive bids. Seller engagement is everything.
