Default Locost 7 Seven Project Lotus - $2500 (Pearland)

Craigslist, no affiliation.

I bought this project from a local guy who had to move up to Boston, but honestly I have too many projects as it is so this needs to find a good home.

It is a book chasis that was cut and welded by a local fab shop. The engine bay has motor mount locations for an MG motor, but I was just going to cut them out and use one of the four miata motors I have sitting around. The nose/scuttle/from and rear fenders were all bought from kenetic I believe. It has an aluminum fuel tank that I was told was 9 gallons. The front suspension is all fit up, but the back needs to be finished. The control arms are already made, but you just have to make the mounts for the rear shocks/springs. The pedal kit is a Tilton unit with a whole kit of different remote mount reseviors. It has lincoln lsd diff/axles/rear hubs and brakes/front hubs and brakes. The steering rack is a new MG unit, the steering column is from an audi, and the radiator is a large aluminum unit for a civic.

I can build a rollbar and weld it in if desired by any potential buyer.

Let me know what questions you may have.

Oh that's tempting, but you've got to have a LOT of faith to trust some unknown person's home brew control arms and brakes. Guess I just don't have that much faith. Interesting though.

They aren't hard to build! I'm in the middle of a "7" build right now, its using a boosted Miata 1.6 but isn't done yet. Should have the same or better power-weight ratio than a Lamborghini Gallardo when its all finished

Make an intro thread, introduce yourself and post pics. We would love to see it.

Will do! I've been thumbing through this forum for a while because of my other 2 Miata's (It's starting to get ridiculous!) but haven't bothered to do some posts yet.
