It looks like it may have. No response from the winner as yet though - so maybe not.... who knows - I hate eBay.

It’s more annoying than anything else. Listed as spyder chassis - very clearly - buyer moaning after seeing the chassis pictures that it was incorrect and the v8 was wrong. Ummm lotus never fitted a v8 to these. 😒

the second the weather warms up and if the cars still here I shall commence getting some interest in it myself

There’s plenty of margin in the car at the price it sold for the next guy to make some ££ or get a decent car

Had a feeling you might have done Mike 

It needs a bit of work on the interior and some new Tyres. It’s gonna make someone a nice car with a bit of time and effort. 

Fingers crossed this sale goes through. If it doesn’t it’s tyres and trim and rolling my sleeves up

Deposit paid. It’s gone to a proper enthusiast owner - so looking forward to seeing her progress to the next stage of her life. 

At least she’s now out of her long time slumber and back on the road - just hope the new owner uses and improves her

Make sure you get that chap on here, I would love to see what he does with it

@Barrykearley - I assume this fleabay add is a scam. Seller also has an Excel ad - both with suspiciously little info???

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Lotus-Elite-V8-spyder-chassis/382858432973?hash=item59242411cd:g:NsUAAOSwaNRclkll

Is the price for that bit in Yen or £?
