1978 Lotus Esprit Champion Edition

  Spotted in Miami is a 1978 Lotus Esprit Champion Edition  for $20,000 USD.   This is 1 of only 99 made in the US. Car has been in storage for over 20 years, Engine and transmission are functional, the seller tuned and started her up about a year ago, took her around the block…not bad for 20 year stored car!  The car is mostly complete, all glass is intact, interior is there, wheels are flawless (in primer), the body was repaired and primed several years ago when the seller began a full concourse restoration on her but with way too many projects going on at the moment, we can’t move forward on this one any longer.  The seller is ready to sell and is motivated. What do you think of a restoration of this Lotus?

This is probably priced too high but could be a worthy restoration candidate for someone that loves Esprits.  It has the BBS wheels and the good thing is that its fiberglass.   It will still require a full resotration which includes full body work and paint,  engine work, and full interior restoration. Anyone up for the Challenge?   I would love to see this restoration documented. Click Here
