BIG, heavy duty Build Table on CL in the Reno NV area.
Not too far from Sacto, not cheap either.
No relation to seller and all that.

I saw this in my news feed. A little closer to me and I'd be hitching up the trailer.

Somebody's gonna walk away with that car for $500. Pull the parts needed for a build, part out & sell the rest, make a profit. Wish I'd been able to find a deal like that in my part of the world when I started my build!!

Engine is in, needs completion.
No relation to me but fairly local so I can verify the description if anyone is really interested.

Original post under wrong header. Can't say what all is left. He said no trans but didn't mention engine. The picture isn't clear enough for me to tell. The glaucoma makes detail hard to make out. Looks like the whole front suspension is intact and the rear shows something in the wheel well.

https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/cto/ ... 79387.html

Just throwing this out hoping somebody can benefit from it.

No relation to seller but I am near enough to take a look if anyone is seriously interested.

1970's RQ Riley Trimuter unfinished project. Trike w/ Rotary engine. Doesn't look like an RX7 engine. (Fichtel & Sachs Snowmobile Rotary?) They are asking 1200

I'd say keep the eco stuff and knock off 3k. He'd get what he's asking if he'd kept the original driveline.

Looks like an example of being able to get titled but the year model makes living in an emission check area problematic.

Too bad he won't swap for a harley.

The advertiser claims this is a genuine 1962 Lotus 7 with 170 original miles on it that's been in storage for 33 years. It could happen, I guess?

Here it is (8 photos) ==> https://losangeles.craigslist.org/wst/c ... 31187.html

I have no association with this vehicle, nor knowledge of it.

Cheers,
