I inherited this kit from my father who passed away a few months ago.

I believe this kit to be an R.M. Eight.

The kit comes with a lot of parts, please take a careful look at the pictures.

Some of the parts included are:
Ford Zetec motor
Tremec T5 transmission
T9 transmission
Several different bellhousings
KEP engine adaptor plate
Several different clutches
Zetec headers
Side draft Delorto carburetors/w manifold for Zetec
Limited slip differential from a 240SX
VDO gauges
Windshield glass
Pedal clusters

Price is negotiable at $9,000. Please feel free to make an offer. Car is located in Modesto, CA.

Feel free to call with any questions etc, 832-410-5480.

Some text from original eBay ad from Oct 2002:

"This car is NOT TITLED, and is NOT running and needs to be completed. Unique opportunity to own a Lotus Seven replica at an affordable price. The R.M. Classics Manufacturing Company was located in South Africa and was headed by Hans Wilms. The company went out of business in the 1990's and very few cars were imported to America. R.M. Classics produced two versions of their Seven Replica. One was dimensionally the same as the original Lotus Seven; the other was described as the long version. The long Seven is both wider and longer than the original. The extra space is noticeable once you sit in the car. It can easily accommodate a six foot plus driver. I am offering a long version R.M. Eight. The front suspension is complete with Merkur upright, rotors, and calipers. The independent rear suspension is also from a Merkur with professionally made custom uprights, Miata rear calipers and appropriate rotors. Custom made stainless steel fuel tank. Fuel and rake lines have been installed along with pedals. The car is fully carpeted and has a padded dash and interior panels. Leather steering wheel installed along with new column and steering rack. Seats, tonneau, purpose built radiator, fan, three point seat belts, headlights, turn signals, and brake lights have also been installed. The fiberglass body is in good shape but needs some work to be perfect. The bolt pattern for the wheels is 4 x 4.5."

It would be helpful if the "sold" status was amended to the original posts title. Save us having to read down only to find it's been sold.

I wonder what it sold for?

I would not have gone over 5k, would have started at 3500.
