This car has led a pampered life, no expense spared either here in the U.K. or in its early days in the USA. The history file contains everything, detailing the engine and gearbox rebuild by Lotus Specialists, A.N.E.Bates back in 1990 at a cost of 3,126.72. It has a battery trickle charge unit and a battery isolation switch. I searched for years for such a car but, unfortunately I have just lost my job, so it is a regrettable sale. Pre-Brexit and Covid it would have been 80,000, but needs must. By all means call me about the car but, please do not make offers until seen or driven. Of course this does not apply if you are outside of the U.K.! These are a small number car in terms of production, especially the series 1 being kept original with single S.U. carburettor. Many F1 drivers cut there teeth driving these wonderful cars in the 1960's, and like Jaguar, they have a great history in Class, at Le Mans. Geoff in Lincolnshire: 01507 533760. Offers accepted.
