Lotus Elite number 1354, built in 1960, but was registered in MD as a 1962. Current owner bought this Elite in 1996 and did not think it was worth fighting with the DMV for a date correction. The Canadian restorer had nearly completed his work in 1996 but some small tasks were finished up by the current owner, who also installed a Ford Siera 5 speed transmission from a kit developed by Ian Hammer in the UK. The original four speed gearbox and all the parts that were swapped out to do the conversion will be included with the car. This five speed has a .82 overdrive that makes highway driving much more enjoyable! Also a modern electric fan was installed to improve cooling and the original fan will be included with the car. There are no bumpers on the car.at this time, but a complete set of original bumpers are included along with a dual brake master cylinder kit and a kit to install sealed bearings in the rear hubs. The paint is very good, engine runs strong, gearbox operates smoothly, and this Elite been regularly maintained including occasional compression checks. Current owner will guarantee this car will pass MD State Inspection.
