|Comments:||This is a RHD S3 SE FHC
Body number 2024
UK Licence Plate: BOO 758F
I bought this in the UK. I moved the car to the US in 1994 and now resides in Austin, Tx
Car originally was dark/Royal blue with gold bumpers when I purchased it in 1983.
The car originally had *many* racing modification to Body, Chassis, Suspension and Engine. There was a sticker for "Eagle Racing" in the boot, not sure if this is relevant. The car had huge 225 wheels in the rear and 205s in the front when I originally purchased it. These have since been reverted to stock rims.
Over the years, I have slowly had the racing modifications reverted to somewhere close to original as they became broken/worn out.
The car now has a Spyder chassis (No. 125) on it.
Lotus have confirmed that the current Engine was an 1969 SE spec. TwinCam out of a Lotus Cortina. Not sure what happened to the original engine, or when the engine swap would have occurred.
It has been confirmed that this car left Lotus in September 1967 as a kit.
