"1915 Lotus Replica"
For those of you in the part of this country that gets a lot of rain, here's a "1915 Lotus Replica" I noticed while scanning through eBay.

Now Richard - I wouldn't call it ugly. It's just very unusual!

Something a little more in the spirit. An unfinished Sabre Seven, located in Walworth, NY Nice looking IMO. Needs a few bits and some finishing. Never registered. on eBay auction with a BIN of $6K. I don't know what the reserve is.

Specifics - (all new - 1989)

Toyota 4AGE 16v with T50 5-speed.
Wilwood brakes
Yokahama tires (zero miles)
Centerline wheels
Corbeau seats
Coilover Spax shocks
The Sabre Seven was built using Ford Pinto front suspension components. The space-frame chassis is based on a 92-inch wheelbase and is made up of 1 and 1-1/4 inch square tube stock. The rear-end is a Ford 8-inch located by urethane bushed four-bar links with a fabricated Panhard bar.

Since owning the car I have purchased the following (all still in the box) –

Painless wiring harness
New driveshaft tube, yokes, and universal joints
Weber DCOE 40 dual intake manifold (I do have all of the fuel injection system if someone wanted to go that way – I have not purchased the carbs yet.)
I am aware that the following will need to be acquired –

Flywheel (I have the bolts)
Clutch & pressure plate (I have the bolts)
Clutch slave cylinder
Exhaust
Gauges
Switches
All brake, clutch, and fuel lines. The fuel cell has never had fuel in it.
Coolant hoses. The radiator is mounted in the nose.

I never said that 6K was a good price and somebody should jump on it. IMO more in the range of 3-4K. But you have more experience in buying unfinished projects that I. For what it is, it is done well IMO. It is certainly a better Locost choice (when done) than the 1915 Lotus all-weather Seven RoyzMG posted.

I agree Chuck. I think it's about a 3k car. Tires may have zero miles and still be garbage. A lot of choices they made that I would change.

Now that is a cool project! In the photo it looks small, like a kids pedal car. But I suspect it is just the photo. Not too far from me. But I have too many projects now!
