Want to buy Lotus elise shell NJ area

Looking for a clean title lotus shell without a motor or trans, or one with a damaged motor or trans for a swap. I have cash in hand for the right car. Willing to travel within reason.

Maybe you will find what you are looking for but just keep in mind that the engine and trans in an elise are the cheapest part of the car, so it seems unlikely that you find something like that. Probably your best bet is to find a rear damaged car and replace the subframe and whatever else broke and go from there.

I dont want any body damaged car. I want a clean title shell. I won't consider anything else. Thanks for your insight.

Uhhh, so go buy a good car and sell the drivetrain

Sorry, but this is kind of a silly attitude.

A drivetrain is a couple grand, why would someone not replace them and get actual money for the car?

There are so many Elises technically totaled, repaired as good as new and available more cheaply than a clean title car it is crazy to keep looking for a clean title with no drivetrain
