seems to have the harnessing...
anyone know what a set of front and back clams would go for? guessing an engine would be about $2k and given the sparse interior, someone with time and mechanical skills might actually be able to make a decent ride from this

Probably not. The ideal use for this chassis would be to re-chassis a car with minimal damage other than to the chassis (80hrs to switch the chassis).

To give you an idea the front half would cost at least $13k before you even started:

Front clam ($5200) + lights ($1300 x 2) + crash structure (~$3000) + radiator ($1000 (incl housing)) + "stuff to complete it" (~$1000)...

And this is before you put it together and paint it!!!

If someone could find a car that's been wrecked from behind and another wrecked from in front, they could possibly end up with one of the cheapest Elises on the road.

Then again, decent 05's are selling in the 20s.
