View Full Version : Wanted : Seven to buy

Well, always wanted one, so now the Healey's done, why not?
Am handy with tools, know British cars, will travel.
Any leads out there? A project would not be bad, long as everything's there.

Nope, haven't driven one. I'm a large guy, too, but know of someone larger who does drive one, so ya never know - guess I do have to drive one! Then decide.

Hummmmm. I am probably working then. 2 jobs and all - but if you come up I-95 to Stamford, let me know and I'll buy you a beverage of your choice!

Having gone through the process 7yrs ago you will find that "basket-case" sevens are rare, if non-existent. I ended up buying a nice classic Super7 to rebuild from the ground up. I wanted one with an original Lotus TwinCam, since there were only @350 produced.

On the other hand, you might find a roller, which will let you add your flavor of drive-train. Every now and then https://www.wirewheel.com will have one for sale and they also sell Birkins with or w/o engine.

If you know of someone looking for a restored classic, I have to sell mine to make room for the Elise. Go to https://www.casf.org/1978_caterham.htm

Good luck in your search.
