And what do you figure they are worth just as is for the parts? The picture shows the only damage in each car and none of them start.

no way of telling from the pics if the frames or suspension mounting points are tweaked imo.

I was recently speaking with a very experienced vintage Lotus mechanic. He said 'Everything can be repaired.'

How big of a check do you want to write?

technically you can fix a car with suspension mounting points destroyed, 'all' you have to do is get a new frame from lotus (per lotus).

So I agree with above, all are repairable!

Most can be raced even if the suspension points are damaged in that spot. It is not hard to fab up new suspension points in a shop that builds cars from scratch like mine.
Making the bodywork look right and selling it with that kind of repair is hard.
