Any Interest In My Salvage Esprit (l.a, Ca)


Recommended Posts

If there is anyone interested in my Esprit that was recently totaled, please email me at [email protected]

The buyback amount is $3900 usd, so of course offers above that to make the whole process woth my while.

The engine and tranny are fine. Most of the interior is good. The car may even be rebuildable, as I am starting to think that there may not be frame damage. ...and if there is it is as where the front clip mounts to the frame... not the backbone. A donor would be mandatory to fix the car and keep the cost down though.

I need to get the whole claim settled, so I am mailing the notarized forms in to finalize the claim by Friday(and get serious about my next Esprit)and get my if anyone has interest in getting a spare drivetrain, rear suspension, interior parts for less than the cost of an engine rebuild...please email me asap. I need a committed buyer before I mail the forms in. Hate to see the car go to a salvage yard and rot....especially since the car has A LOT of good parts, and I recently powdercoated the engine.



ps: Car is located in Thousand Oaks, CA, about 1 hour north of downtown L.A, or LAX Airport. Photos of the damage can be seen in "Well, My Lotus Is History" thread in this chat room.

Paul - on the basis a gearbox alone was for sale on LEW in Kansas for $8000, you could make a good profit by parting out the car yourself - I appreciate you possibly need the cash for a replacement, but it's worth considering if you have some storage space.
