Yeah, seems like an honest idea, except that unless you're familiar with Lotus, the damage isn't so bad. So while they are not lying, they aren't being all that forthcoming, either.I'll give them credit for posting lots of pictures. I can't see how that car is worth the asking price though.
He said the frame, not the body.:huh: Looks like more than a nick to me...
Here we go again...
Actually, it looks like the area around the pick up points for the upper wishbone are torn/deformed. That's generally considered irretrievably damaged. :shrug:He said the frame, not the body.
Honestly, I dont think the guy's misrepresenting the car at all. If i were looking for a rebuilder, that's a solid candidate. That's the nice thing about these cars, i'm pretty convinced that anything that broke could be remade in my garage in a weekend other than bolt-on parts. The tub's good, the dinged frame area is what looks like a bolt-in shock mount...
Honestly, if i was looking to make a project/toy, I wouldn't say no to that car. I'd say HELL no to the price, but at about 10-12? Game on!
The seller's being honest about condition, there's pictures of everything. For someone who knows metal, i see nothing to be scared of.
