There weren't any on the market when I was looking for one, so I ended up ordering all the bits and pieces from Lotus and assembling it myself. If I recall correctly, it totaled somewhere around $1200 as well (including the gasket).
In the past I've arranged to have the seller drop the item at a local UPS store, they're often willing to do that. You can have UPS charge your card to pack and ship it, just talk to the store manager beforehand.
I convinced a ebay seller to end his auction within an hour of listing one for $500 with a BIN of $800 about 2 years ago, SCORE I thought, until it arrived in a million pieces of glass with a couple mixed in hinges and tabs. What a bummer that was. All I can say is the roof is huge and must be real thin cause it looked packed well from what I could see. Insured though. Still don't have one.
