    Interesting. It's not that expensive for what you get, however you wonder where the market is for these. I'm sure it's extremely limited, and there are used Westfield 11's out there.

    So what is this? Scrap an MGB and use the bits to build a Lotus-looking car, using this frame and body?

    I must say, that's about as non-Lotus a chassis as I can imagine!

    The ad talks about MGB sized cars, the pictures show some sort of space frame, with presumably proprietary suspension bits attached (maybe MGB, don't know). Don't know if MGB sized is an approximation, but I think a real 11 is closer to MG Midget sized. But of course many of the 7 replicas are bigger than the original 7, so who knows?
