1984 Esprit S3 N/A (on SORN)

Recommended Posts

Vehicle failed it's MoT last May (2009) requiring 2 rear tyres and a fix to a blowing exhaust (crack in the collector pipe just after the manifold). Since the clutch needed replacing too I decided I might as well take the engine out to fix/replace the exhaust and do the clutch. However, I was too busy to do anything with it at the time so I put it on a SORN and parked it up in a dry shed.I have since moved house and have neither the garage space for it nor the funds at this moment to do the work and so I have decided the best option is to sell to someone who will put it back on the road.The car has covered 100,000 miles, however the engine was rebuilt about 5 years ago and the cambelt was renewed not long before the MoT failure. The engine runs well and smoothly. The only mechanical issue is that the gear linkage needs overhauling, plenty of freeplay in it at present.Electrical bits all sound.Interior is black, half leather and is good for it's age though there is a repair either side to the seam where the seat meets the back.Exterior paintwork (calypso red) is good from 10 yards but there are a couple of areas where the gel coat has been polished thin and there are some markings on the roof. This car would need a respray if you wish to exhibit it.All in all a sound car that just needs a little TLC to return it to the road, and a little more to return it to it's original glory.Car is for sale in the above condition for £3,000.
