967 Lotus Elan SE. It comes with the original "Lotus Cars" Factory Warranty, import papers and original bill of sale. It also has all log books dating back to 1972. It has a copy of the Lotus Cars Factory workshop manual.
This was Don Roberts CP championship car and has been raced and carefully maintained since it's last rebuild in 2011 and a complete freshening in 2013-2015 including new stub axles and CV joints. You have your choice of any two of 4:11, 3:90, 3.70 TranX LSD rear ends. Jay Ivey built the 1700cc engine which produces a durable and reliable 183 bhp @ 7100 rpm. This is a rare car with all it's log books and history since new. It has 2015 belts and is a turn key competitive vintage race car. At the 2016 National Championship’s. I finished 6th overall and fourth in class in a field of thirty-eight entrants. (Despite that I had not raced since April 24, 2016 due to a rotator cuff injury and surgical repair.)
I have retired from actively campaigning after twenty-two years of vintage racing. I am a ten year survivor of leukemia. I will continue to instruct and mentor younger drivers, but I'm more interested in traveling for pleasure not only for racing.
