Lotus 5 speed box

I have a Lotus five speed box out of a +2.
Can anyone give me an idea of the value of one of these?
Thanks,
Chris

It probably also depends on condition, has it been rebuilt by a reputable reconditioner or does it still have the standard heavy, imprecise shift etc. and (probably by now) worn bearings, synchro etc.

A good 5 speed box will sell for between ?1200 and ?1600 easily. You need to make sure you have the speedo drive with it, the mtg brkt and prop shaft. with these you should achieve your money. I did.
