I have a matching custom trailer, which I used to haul the car to LOG, the Lotus Owners Gathering, when it was held in Texas (2006) and Colorado (2007). The trailer was built by Dennis Brunton of Bradenton, FL. The trailer is specially designed to carry a Super Seven and fit through an 8' wide garage door, and it tilts for loading and unloading without the need for ramps. I store the car on the trailer in my garage.

I will consider selling the trailer separately, if whoever buys the Birkin does not want the trailer.

Also has a lightened flywheel--I forgot to list that in the original post.

I'd be happy to separate the car and the trailer. I'd be willing to sell the car for $20,500 and the trailer for $1,500; but I can't sell the trailer before the car.

I updated the original post to set a separate price of $1,500 for the trailer and $20,500 for the Birkin.


Can I change the title of the thread?

How hard would it be to switch to ZX3?
Its not that hard, if you are into that sort of thing. I'm not; however, many of the Birkin folk are: You can get a better answer from the Birkin forum on Yahoo groups. Its a very active group and much of the discussion covers what is most effective right now with regard to current prices, parts availability, where you are starting from and how much horsepower you want.
