That would have certainly fooled me Barry, but I bow to your greater.... ect ect

Plenty of good people would get caught out on that potential purchase - even numbered. In fairness to the seller, hes not advertising it as an Essex.

It's not an "official" Essex car, but it and its (two other, I think?) companions are noteworthy Esprits nonetheless. Its history is unique and it has all the right bits. I'd take that car as it is over any other U.S. Giugiaro Turbo, regardless of what anybody says.

. . . oh to have had a car like that on U.S. roads in 1981 . . .

I'm sure that its a great car and maybe its just me but personally I think that the advert should make clear that it's not an Essex. Buyer beware and all that but as Tony says its got all the bits.

With a number (37) on the side many people unfamiliar may think that it's a 'genuine' one.

When I bought my first Lotus, a Europa, I didn't realise that it was a custom car (hence a lot lower value) as I didn't know what to look out for - I thought they must have all come with electric doors..!
