Looking for Salvaged or Wrecked Evora 2+2 Chassis

Contact me if you have or currently know anyone with a salvaged Evora with rear seats. Looking just to keep the chassis mainly. Would consider fire damaged frefirably just so that the chassis is intact. Looking to build as a project car and a great learning experience. Am currently a student about to graduate with an aerospace engineering degree and would like anyone's assistance in a search for and evora chassis that has the rear seats.

You don't want a fire damaged one as enough damage to write it off will have destroyed the chassis - what you want is a flood write off. But with not many around I think its a big ask!

Wow. THIS is a long shot. There probably aren't two wrecked Evoras in the entire country yet.

What do you need the rear seats for? Even if you find one, I bet it would set you back about 10k.

if its a project... why is the rear seat option so important?

a salvage car is (currently) going to be pretty bad, since values are still relative high. its going to take about almost 50k of damage to total one out... or a toast chassis.

Fire damage will have adversely tempered the frame and destroyed it, The 2+0 and 2+2 are one and the same chassis

How much are you looking to spend? I know where a 2011 Evora 2+2 with less than 500 miles on it is.
