Lotus Elan

Most of an S3 for sale

PostPost by: mcarling » Fri Dec 18, 2015 12:54 am

I bought this car back in February: lotus-elan-f19/new-1967-coupe-t30044.html

My project is to produce an electric Elan. I obtained a new complete rolling space-frame chassis from Spyder and have moved the body over to the new chassis. So, the original rolling chassis, including the transmission and the disassembled engine are for sale.

The car reportedly departed the factory 24 June 1966 but was titled as a 1967 model year.

Once again whatever the vigilinks are that this site uses they are preventing me from viewing an eBay item in the UK from France

Malheureusement, l'acc?s ? cet objet a ?t? bloqu? en raison de restrictions l?gales en vigueur dans certains pays. Conform?ment ? ces restrictions, nous nous effor?ons de bloquer l'affichage des objets concern?s. Nous regrettons de vous informer que pour des raisons techniques, les utilisateurs ne pourront pas afficher certaines annonces qui ne rel?vent pas de ces restrictions. Nous vous prions de nous excuser pour les d?sagr?ments occasionn?s et nous esp?rons que vous trouverez d'autres objets int?ressants sur eBay.

I am fairly sure that I can view it if I knew the item number or what to search for, "Lotus Elan Rolling chassis" doesnt bring up anything for me, can anyone help please?

Yes that works for me just fine when I type in the number.

Message to Jeff Cocking, there is something in the vigilinks (whatever they are) that prevent me from viewing many items on EBay, items which I can view without restriction if I search for them either by guessing the description or like this time asking for the listing number.

What is it that creates these vigilinks when people link to the E-bay listing?

actually getting a title is the easy part. Coming up with VIN plates is the real problem here .

I'm intrigued.

How do you get a title 'easily'?
