  1. Welcome Christopher! glad you found the thread.
  2. Hi @SparkyDo you believe the early dry sump cars and Essex cars had a black chassis from factory? Cheers, Lex
  3. interesting @v8vantage, the Jim Loose cars..i wonder if they were put on afterwards or from factory. I quite like them.
  4. That is lovely @LOTUSMAN33 I wonder if any of the few 1980 non-essex cars had them? that were Essex spec.
  5. that looks lovely @Finlandese, you must be very happy!
  6. yes indeed @Bazza 907 I had to re-read that myself. Perhaps he could get some mechanicals done for that price. @LOTUSMAN33 I dare say it wont be leaving for a while! I don't think any sized cheque will stop it leaving eventually though.. I'm sure @Bazza 907understands.
  7. I will see if I can find it. I think you guys should get one back over there, you have lost all the good ones. If properly restored it would be a very special car but it’s a really good runner in the meantime. I was lucky enough to drive it - my first Esprit drive. I drove one of the 3 Australian delivered Sport 300 here about 6 months later It was for sale for $55,000 AU - I didn’t quite appreciate what it was in 2010 unfortunately as I had eyes only for a Bond car.
  8. Some pics I took when I saw It in 2010 when I was considering buying it. HC engine, re-trimmed black. Still trying to find the new owner here in Australia. It sold in 2018 for the equivalent of £15,000 at auction after it wasn’t advertised as anything special. If it still had it’s dry sump lump I would have bought it. Also all the original leather had been replaced and not correctly. It’s a hot looking thing though. Lex.
  9. no that white one is definitely not, more like an '84. I'm just referring to the red car in the pics..
  10. Hi Roo I just found this post from 2017. This is the car I’ve been searching for, the 3/3 FYEO white/brown cars for 1980 and the sister car to mine 0953. 0928 white heat was the first and was destroyed in ‘85. Would you be able to get me in touch? I’d love to see some photos and see what state it‘s in. I can probabably let him know how important the car is! Amazing it’s ended up in USA. cheers Lex
  11. Dave the top one must be 10952 with the red louvres and now LHD.. good going back through old posts where we now have some more info.
  12. Have just been going back through the pages. Here are the before and afters of #1002 in the register from some different posts. Looked like a lovely car. “first registered to Kuwaiti royal family. Copart car. Wrecked in accident and written off”
  13. I haven's seen one yet, so the deposit is conditional. Australia are just bringing 250 examples of a "Rallye" edition that has all the good bits. Just didn't want to miss out it it is just really good..!
  14. I've got a deposit down for the top spec version when it's available in Australia.
