I guess this is even less than a "baby" Elan, that will get someone's motor running. Anyway, I bought this many years ago and it's time for someone to take the project on, I'll never get to it. As the title suggests, it's not all there, the front is missing back to the middle of the front wheel wells. The rear trunk area is "soft", it's there but with some significant cracks. The car sat out in weather/sun for a number of years and there are areas where the fibers are exposed, so the resin has disappeared, at least on the surface. There is no trunk/boot lid and of course no bonnet/hood. But the doors are there, albeit no striker assemblies. It's really a bare shell, that's had a hard life. But if you''re ambitious, here's the basis of a project, maybe a track/autocross candidate.

The frame is a bit of a question mark as I believe it was from a repair job that Rich/Kampena had replaced in a build, so it probably has some issue but not rust to any measurable degree, not sure if it was a crash or simply a Spider upgrade.

Now the sticky part, the body and frame are on the second level of a 40' storage container and not something that is easily gotten to and I don't have any pixs but will attempt a few tomorrow morning, be prepared for something that really will not tell much of the story. I'm in Northern CA and will not ship but I suppose I could sell the doors, but would prefer the whole project to go as one. And then there's the price, not sure what to ask and am open to offers, thinking something around $1500

HI Jerry

I might be interested in the front clip, if it's still available. And even if it is not still available, would you please contact me offline and let me know?

thanks

No dash, just a bare body, well 3/4 of one and a chassis.

I just bought a dash for my 26R from Prestige Autowood and it is beautiful!
