Genuine Lotus 7 “the real thing” NOT a clone. Often imitated, never duplicated.
1969 Lotus "7" Seven S3 project, Ford/Kent 1600 crossflow engine, turns over free, downdraft Weber carb, complete car, some front frame rust, Arch Motors frame #AM110, English Ford Escort rear, new stainless steel gas tank, still has original ignition key #FP701. NEW parts included (new rotors, new drums, calipers, stainless steel pistons, tie rod ends, Smith's heater box, spindles, etc.) Previously featured as a "Bring-a-Trailer Exclusive" 3 years ago. Same condition, only more paint stripped off.
NOTE: New Jersey title discrepancy - title shows year as 1965 and VIN as SB2991 The original VIN plate is quite worn away and difficult to read. New replacement VIN plates are readily available for etching a corrected VIN number if required or for your restoration.

Please remember that this is an "antique" vehicle 48 years old. It needs full restoration and is consistent with a vehicle with this mileage, age and use. Car is available for pre-bid inspections and I would always encourage and welcome this. I am proud of my 100% excellent feedback score and always try to give accurate descriptions so that there are no surprises or disappointments. I am open and receptive torealisticoffers considering all that is included.

Those with less than ten (10) or negative feedback history do NOT bid unless you contact me and communicate first, otherwise your bids will be retracted and bidder banned from further bidding. The winning bid is NOT a right of first refusal, but a commitment to purchase the vehicle regardless of anything, so a non-refundable deposit via PayPal is required within 24 hours of auction ending and arrangements to be made for pickup of item. Vehicle is listed "for sale" by other venues and media, so I reserve the right to terminate the listing at any time.

Will sell world-wide, but any and all shipping/transport arrangements to be made and paid for by winning bidder/buyer.
