I don't want to be vague, but I have a possible opportunity to buy a 64 S2 Seven LHD project and I'm looking for some help on its value. I can't share much except it's apart and mostly complete with a Cosworth 1500 non x-flow. It needs assembly and finishing, but the engine does run well I'm told, and the frame is solid and straight. Biggest missing item is the bonnet, but I believe everything else is there. It's been in dry storage for many years and I'm assuming if I get it that I'll end up going through everything. The current owner has no clue what the value is and I'm looking for a ball park figure to start with. Although I've seen the car in the past I don't have any pictures to share right now and I'm not 100% convinced the current owner is ready to let it go.

Any insite is appreciated given my limited description.

Will share more on car much later. Pictures just starting to be sent from owner. It may be better than I originally thought.

Does it have a chassis plate
Has it been authenticated by John Watson
A correct bonnet is available from caterham [a true long length short scuttle non louvered with scoop]

You should ask this question on the USA Sevens web site. There are very knowledgable guys who will have the right perspective.

the genuine Lotus Seven market is down right now, having just sold an S2 for only $25K. it was running/driving presentable showable condition. so consider restoration costs unless you're going to keep it. Good luck!
