Car description

1985 Lotus Turbo Esprit. Carbureted turbo engine. This car needs a complete restoration. It is mostly original. It has a numbers-matching engine with recently rebuilt carburetors. Unfortunately the transmission input shaft is broken, so the car will not move on its own. I am on the fence about continuing the restoration since I have so many other projects, so I thought I would see what offers I get here. Thanks!

If you are unable to source a replacement transmission, I can offer a used transmission to the buyer for $500.

More photos of the car are pending!

Condition: As-is. Car needs a transmission input shaft and a full restoration. Carbs recently rebuilt.
