1962 Lotus Other

This is a car that has never been restored. The first or second owner was US Air Force Captain Donald S. Sammis who was stationed at the RAF in the UK. He purchased the car in England in August 1963 and had it shipped to the US in summer of 1966. Engine Coventry Climax aluminum inline four cylinder, rated around 75 HP when new. SU carburetors have been rebuilt by the previous owner, along with the fuel system and new spark plugs to make it run and drive once again. Girling disc brakes have also been rebuilt from years of sitting idle and are reported to work well. Elites also featured a fully independent suspension and weighed just 1110 pounds.
The car should have new tires and an inspection before adding serious miles, but this is an honest example and a very good car.
