Interesting restoration project for those who say they've been looking for a barn find or a pre 1983 turbo?

 

Love the bit that says it needs £3000-£4000 spending on it and then it will be worth £1500 !!!!

I did notice that had a giggle.

I think the £3000-£4000 needed is being a little optimistic too. I just spent that on mine for routine things. Nice colour.

Hi,

Seen this one on ebay.

What is your thoughts on its value?

I would think £3000 is probably its value considering it needs a full restoration.

From someone that has fully restored one what is a conservative restoration budget for an Esprit I wonder?

I think it will go for approx 4 thousand .Might be wrong It might appeal to someone wanting to do a engine convertision.Mike

Hopefully it will get a proper restoration and kept in its original specification. It's a early car in a great colour..

It went for £5k

 

Yes that's FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS !!!!!!!!

 

It looked like it needed a complete mechanical restoration, a complete respray and interior spruce up (though the interior did look almost all there).

 

Amazing

Sounds mad to me aswell.

Engine condition unknown, dodgy gearbox, full respray needed.

Tank wasn't drained when stored 15 yrs ago so full fuel system would need work aswell.

Makes the turbo on gumtree for £7.5k look like a bargain

This looks rather familiar.

 

Why do you think it's been re listed so soon after it finished?

 

Edit - just read the comments - perhaps a non-payer?
