Wish I had the money.. That car is a bargain at the current asking price.

What is the current asking price ?
Nonetheless, freshly built, one race weekend, now for sale ... what went wrong, did the customer not like the car ?
1964 S1 (engine ready, awainting body paint)
1967 S3 DHC (now adjusted by Brian Buckland, totally calm idle)
1969 S4 FHC (final interior stuff)

price is in the add at the link : $39500

The provided vin is a bit odd as it show a 5 digit unit number... the paint scheme is a bit loaded to my taste, but on paper and the photos the car does not look bad for the price...

"not to bad as price" is an understatement - the engine is about $20k alone

BUT, THEY HAD TO CUT OFF THE WINDOW FRAMES!!!! WHY? Saved at lest 10 pounds

In the VIN, the 1 should be a slash, ie: 36 / 66**

I suspect they took out the complete window frame and motors - saves more like 20 or 30 Kg and sold them for enough to pay for about half the rest of the build hahahha

My Elan is also titled with the "/" shown as a "1". Many US state DMV computer systems were never configured to accept anything other than numbers or letters in the VIN field.
There is no cure for Lotus, only treatment.

just noticed it has the vent behind one door, but not on the other side. What's with that oddity??
