1957 Lotus Eleven
This is an authentic Lotus Eleven with original chassis and original Coventry Climax engine. It is one of the 270 Elevens built by Lotus and one of the last Club models in existence. It has undergone a frame-up restoration to its original full street configuration by the owner, the same owner since 1975. A 1950's sports car on another level, with all components rebuilt and in excellent condition. Relatively simple to maintain. Easy to title depending on your location.
