Precariously Placed: 1976 Lotus Elite +2

'76 Lotus Elite+2

It has been said that a picture is worth 1,000 words and boy, does this one tell a lot! This precariously placed 1976 Lotus Elite+2 is sitting on the cider-blocks and 4x4s and is listed on ebay out of Cullman, Alabama with a BIN of $650 or best offer. Good luck getting it home though.

This sale is only for the body, no engine or chassis. So, what do you do with it? Whatever you do, do not, we repeat, do not go under or in this car.  Some will say run away as fast as you can. What do you say?

    Is that the chassis under it? And why isn’t it for sale too?

    The rolling chassis would be worth the $650. The body…not so much

        Really easy to do a search to see if it’s been posted. There’s no shortage of great barn finds out there.

    Thought I recognized this from before.

    Sorry guys, I just find and write some of the BFs. I can’t and don’t post them. I can’t remove this one, if I could I would.

    From the way it is stacked, it would seem that the seller needs someone to take the body so he can get the chassis out.
    I guess I could take it off his hands if he is willing to pay me $650……
    Just my .02

    Ha Ha….Not again. !

    We pulled the chassis out and this body has been sitting this way for THREE years… and we continue to sell parts off it.. I guess I should update the picture LOL

    One of these days, we will set the body elsewhere……. but I guess sitting on these ‘legs’ for so long, says we know how to do this.

    Repost. A pic like that cannot be forgotten.

    It was a waste the first time…..

    If it’s sitting on cider blocks, they must be made of ice, and he better get some cinder blocks under it, or it’s gonna fall on his butt next time it gets jacked up.

    Already up high enough. Just slide a Bronco or Blazer frame underneath! @Dave at OldSchool Restorations, it looks like you already that the frame to do that… :-)
