Gold FFM Jeremy STANDEN Posted July 18, 2021 Gold FFM Report Share Posted July 18, 2021 Hi to all and very pleased to join TLF. Am the new owner of a UK market 1983 turbo Esprit which l recently stumbled across listed as a Lotus kit car in a local facebook group out here in Durban South Africa. Fitted with a Ford essex 3L Locally manf engine and with front and rear end "updated" body reproviling along with a registration from 2005 as a new bakkie ( local term for pickup truck ) MBOZA DUZI l was really not sure l was looking at in the long grass until l found her genuine VIN number stamped in the usual front offside position. The seller, a local car dealer, could only tell me that he bought the car from a very old man who had been denied registration as a new Lotus Esprit by protest from Lotus themselves ( not surprisingly ) and thus a new bakkie was registered. If anyone knows more of the cars history l should be very pleased to hear from them thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
