1960 Lotus Elite S1.

I am downsizing my small auto collection and offering a fully, ground-up restored Lotus Elite for sale. This particular Lotus Elite is truly a piece of history and an investment grade sport car. It was the First Elite brought to the US and Sold in Jay Chamberlain's dealership in CA. This car is one of the best Elites in existence today, both in terms of restoration quality and historically.
