I found this on Ebay-looks too good to be true. Maybe someone can find out where it is located and put some eyes on it. The guy has a good feedback rating but doesn't give a location. BE CAREFUL,but maybe a steal of a deal! Rich

Sorry,I looked this up on my phone and for the location it said "Hell No" it cut off the rest of Norway, (see attachment) so I figured he just didn't want to give his location-looks like it's in Norway,too bad-unless someone can look at it and get it here!

Yep, the location says Hell Norway and it exists. See the attached Wikipedia.

Might be a little hard to check out the car for any of us!

IIRC, the Birkin was the same size as the original Lotus which means 39 inch frame vs 42 for a book. I recall sitting in one and could not be comfortable as my wide shoulders put my arm outside the body when turning. For some of the Loti, replicas and copies, and most Locosts, one's fit is determined more by the designer's and builder's choices than a simple frame size measurement.

Still, what could it cost to ship if it is running condition? 2-3k USD maybe? Still a good price at 10K for a Birkin. If titled as a 1995 Birkin or Lotus, it may not be allowed into the country (USA) until next year (only a few days away) under the 25 yr rule.

We must have some Norway contacts here. Do a website search for Norway. you might find someone with a connection there.

Actually I did a search for shipping to the USA,looks like about 2k will get it here... Like the previous reply above-pretty good deal for a Birkin. I did email the seller about the title,I will post anything I get here.

Sounds like somebody already pulled the trigger. Was it you?

Was checking the ad out last night. The time left banner then said 13 hours left. I think the ad's time was up. Also said Zero bids.
