Two 1974 Lotus Elite’s for sale

Two 1974 Lotus Elite’s for sale. They are currently sitting in a field in Rush City, Minnesota. Here is what I know.
Car 1 (White): Originally yellow. I have a clear title. Does not run. It was from North Dakota and had been passed down for 1-2 generations. Underside appears rusted. L198ooks complete.
Car 2 (yellow): Found in California. No title. Looks about 90-95% complete. Gas tank in back seat. Underside looks very clean. Buick 3800 V6 installed? I bought from a non-profit, who received the car as a donation bc owner was moving back to England.
This was a project that I wanted to start in 2018, but just no time. I can send a few more pix and go take more pix as needed for a serious buyer. I hope they go to a good home as I am a car buff, who loves older European autos.
Looking for $5,500 obo. AS-IS, I can provide 1 title and bill of sale.

Lotus Elan Plus2

If you are looking to downsize your Lotus collection and need to sell that Elan Plus2 you meant to work on, but never found the time. I can help!
I’m looking for an Elan Plus2, preferably a Plus2S, but really any Plus2 for restoration. It would be good if it was running but needed repair, paint and general tidying up. A non-runner is not out of the question. Please contact jeffwposton@hotmail.com
