Homebuilt Needing Restoration: 1957 Jaguar D-Type Replica

The seller of this next car doesn’t quite seem to know what he has, but I think perhaps the builder didn’t know what he was building, either. The body is a fiberglass replica of a D-Type racer of unknown provenance and the frame appears to be a homebrew job. The car is setup with a full cage around the driver and no provision for a passenger, so this is more of a Saturday track car than a Sunday driver. The engine appears to be something taken from a motorcycle with a sequentially shifted transmission mounted to the side (notice the shifter setup to the driver’s right). Once you get this thing sorted, it will probably be a blast to bomb around your local racetrack, but I’d love to see it street legal. Find this 1957 Jaguar D-Type Replica bidding for $5,100 in Lutz, FL on eBay with 2 days to go. Tip from Charlie.

From the seller:

You are looking at a fiberglass home built replica racecar made to look like a 1957 Jaguar D-Type. See all 152 photos below this description before bidding! This was found recently by a friend of mine where it was sitting for a long time. It was built many years ago as a racecar, so there is no title. Don’t really know much about it , just thought it was cool, so please take a look at all 152 photos. The motor turns over when you rock the car in gear, but it hasn’t ran or started in a long time. This is being listed as a non-running project, and parts may be missing or need fixed, restored, cleaned, adjusted or replaced, and there are blemishes, cracks, rust, etc. See all 152 photos below this description before bidding. If you have zero percent feedback, please contact me first before bidding. I have provided 152 extra pictures below this description, so we will let them do the talking, but please ask all questions before bidding.
