This rolling celebration of Lotus history is far from road-ready, and is even too incomplete to earn "project car" status. The seller calls it a construction project. Your spouse will call it "annulment material." Extra parts will come with the sale, but expect more hand-fab work to complete the project.
Of course, this all assumes a buyer in the first place. The seller is admittedly pessimistic about finding someone with the special interest and ability to get it on the road. If you've ever considered something like this, you surely couldn't get this far for a smaller investment. If you haven't, consider your appetite sufficiently whetted. Your next stage in the addiction process is full of long, sleepless nights weighing a 1,600-lb MR V8 sports car against your welding and machining abilities.
PhiLOL actually likes the tuna here, but abhors structural rust. Save the manuals.
