The Elite's was made from 73 to 82 but there was a gap in there.   The easiest way to tell the era is the sled color.  From 73 to 75 were like the one shown were white and had a 440 F/C motor.  There was probelms with the earlier ones with vapor lock as the engine compartments were no well vented.  There was a gap in between.  The Elites came back in 78 with a yellow boday and black frame.  They also had a type 444 L/C motor.  In 81 they went to all black and had a type 464 L/C motor that also had oil injection.  

There is a strong following of faithful Elite owners and that is one reason why they are hard to find.  I myself have had the chance to get a couple, but for one reason or another never got one.  But one of these days.   I like the white ones, but would like the L/C motor.

2k is about the going rate on them.  Parts for the elites are hard to find.  So the paying a few extra $$$$ for one in better condition might help out in the long run.
