  • 2003 Birkin S3 For Sale.

    I'm having to sell my Birkin as I need additonal space to undertake a new project.
    Thought I would be OK but turned out not to be the case.

    The car was purchased in 2003 from LA Fox Auto,South Elgin Illinois (Birkin importers).
    The car has a Califonia Title, registered as a 1966 Lotus Super Seven.

    It has a 2.0L DOHC 16V Ford ZX3 Zetec Engine with the following upgrades.

    Dunnell Intake Manifold.

    VGS 40mm Fuel Injected throttle bodies with larger volume injectors.

    VGS Fuel Rail.

    VGS air velocity stacks with ITG foam air filter with quarter turn fasteners.

    Fuel pressure regulator.

    Pectel T2 harness with ECU fully programmable with the ability to map and monitor all parameters such as fuel and air curves via communication port on dash.
    Plug and play action with use of computer lap top. ( All software and cords to be included.)

    Focus Central under drive pulley system including balance(drive pulley) water pump pulley and alternator pulley.

    Aluminum high volume baffled racing oil pan with pick up.

    Low resistance alternator with new timing belt cover and easy to use access belt tensioner.

    Compact Aluminum starter motor.

    Aeroquip fuel lines and connectors.

    Aeroquip Lower chamber breather set-up with ventilated oil catch can.

    SPF performance blue silicone water hoses with billet aluminum flush mount connections.

    Raceline water rail.

    Performance Distributor "Screamin Demon" coil pack and 10mm "Livewire" spark plug wires.

    Birkin Individual header tubes with 4 into 1 collector.

    Oil filter relocator with aeroquip lines/connectors.

    Mocal 13 row oil cooler with aeroquip lines/connectors.

    Siera type 9 five speed gearbox.

    The car has a carbon fiber dash and switch panel with toggle switches and push button start.

    Merit master battery cut-off switch with alternator protection.

    Quarter turn quick release fasteners on nose cone and rubber draw latches on the bonnet/hood.

    PI Research C-Dash which allows you to read and record on board information.

    15 inch Kosei K1 Racing wheel with Pirelli P7000 tires (Including spare).

    I now live in Mariposa, California and any inspection is welcome.

    I'm asking $35,000.00 for the car, which I believe is a fair price.

    Good luck with the sale. You may also want to post this on USA7's to get the word out nationally.

      Hello John, sorry to hear that you are selling. Please try to keep it in the neighborhood ;-)

      Edit: Just read that you are no longer in the neighborhood, anyway. Oh well, please feel free to sell anywhere you want.....

        Hi and thaks for the post.

        We moved to the Mariposa area due to my wife's ill health,
        I hope the car stays in California just for the title paperwork if nothing else.

        I sold the vintage cars that I had, the last one is on it's way to Norway at the moment.

        I'm working on another car at the moment and I still need more room so had to put the Birkin up for sale.

        I still get down to LA as we have family there so will stay in touch as much as I can and I read the threads on here most of the time.

        All the best

        John.

          What did you sell to Norway? I had a couple of prospective buyers looking at my 64 Galaxie a few months ago.
