  1. Sadly the auction house tried to claim these were the best examples in the world but the cars didn't match the claim. The cream always rises to the top and the best cars bring the best money.....this collection was obviously not up to a high enough standard.
  2. More Loose goodness. It wasn't just Lotus he dealt with, he was also an Aston Martin dealer and he also brought some Lamborghini Countach into the USA before they were officially imported.
  3. For a supposedly unmolested original car it has a lot of non original pieces on it. Buyer beware.
  4. Essentially no. Had an engine bay fire and quite a few components replaced including rear window.
  5. Bazza you have the wrong car, you're thinking of 337 that was white when it left the factory. 307, this car in discussion, was Essex Blue.
  6. It looks like an Essex, is painted like an Essex, has Essex bits on it but isn't one according to Lotus who built it.
  7. Ex Jim Loose "Essex" look a like up for sale in Paris. https://suchen.mobile.de/fahrzeuge/details.html?id=326977661&damageUnrepaired=NO_DAMAGE_UNREPAIRED&isSearchRequest=true&makeModelVariant1.makeId=15900&makeModelVariant1.modelId=7&pageNumber=1&scopeId=C&sfmr=false&sortOption.sortBy=creationTime&sortOption.sortOrder=DESCENDING&searchId=588143ce-13df-e7d3-3097-3fee2f44b812
  8. Yes it's 33. Here they are together.
  9. Pretty sure the blue car, 0975, is the pre production S3 so a factory car. Probably why it got the number plate.
  10. Wrong font on the "OPW678W" number plate Fab, not worth unscrewing it!
  11. Nothing wrong with powder coating if done right. It's all in the prep and a good undercoat to powder coat over. Find the right shop for the job and you'll have no problems.
  12. Great result, nice to see "JPS" World Championship Esprits getting the attention and respect they deserve. Only 100 UK Domestic cars were built, rarer than those common white ones that leaked when driven underwater!
  13. There are still a few platers in the UK that do aircraft work. They specialise in cad plating for the industry. I would check to see if they are willing to do car parts. Cad plating is far superior to zinc plating for corrosion protection. It is also an ideal base to powder coat over.
  14. Simon there are some unique parts on the "JPS" World Championship Commemorative Esprit. You can find the list here: http://www.v8vantage.com/jpsesprit/JPS Images/Commemorative Model JPS part numbers.pdf Part number is A079G4019F. Here's what they should look like.
  15. Thanks Richard. All my cars are like that, I hate getting my hands dirty when I'm working on them!
