1960 Lotus Elite Series 1 Left Hand Drive

1960 Lotus Elite Series 1 Left Hand Drive
This 1960 Lotus Elite is for sale for $100,000 in Winter Park, Florida. It has 12,000 miles with a Clear title and is Yellow with Green stripes with a Tan interior.
1960 Lotus Elite Series 1, very rare Maximar bodied LHD, "very few (perhaps only one or two) built" as described by noted Lotus author and historian Dennis Ortenburger in his book "the Lotus Elite"(copyright 1990). Also documented by Club Elite as series 1 Left Hand Drive in 1979. Series one cars had an advantage in being 200 lbs. lighter than Series two, ( 1200 lbs. versus 1400 lbs.). No evidence of pedal set ever mounted on right side of passenger compartment. Chassis/Body unit in good condition with no evidence of any major repair. Older restoration, runs and drives well, with 12,000 miles on odometer. Very little use since restoration. Engine has new timing gears, rings and bearings, as well as Derrington twin carburetor setup with tubular four branch header. New Made in England stainless steel exhaust system, Made in England Monza fuel cap, and brake and clutch master cylinders. Supplied with Lotus certificate of provenance and clear Florida title in seller's name. Engine is original numbers matching Coventry Climax as supplied by factory. Offers considered, Please call Mark @ 503-779-6061 with any questions or email if preferred.

Note: it has come to my attention that a false narrative has been spread by an individual who had previously tried to acquire this car. Among other spurious remarks, they have made the mistatement that no Series 1 cars are Left Hand Drive. This is false as two examples are known to exist. Also they have spread the rumor that this car was converted after a wreck. This is patently false, as the car was documented in 1979 as LHD before it's restoration was started, while it was in a non running condition. It has never been a major collision to my knowledge. If there are any questions regarding the car's provenance, I welcome conversation via email or telephone.
