Custom built Lotus Super 7 / Caterham. Built better and stronger than any kit. Less than 300 miles on the build (see details below). Car is titled as a 1970 MG - clear NJ title and registration.
There is a lot of money and a ton of time in this car. I expect this to go well beyond the starting price, but this is a NO RESERVE auction and will not ended early for any reason, once any bids are made.
Please read through all details and email any additional questions or call 908-723-2264.
