Comments This car was restored by me in 1968 and has been owned by me since. The car was purchased from the 1963/4 New York auto show by Boulton Auto Co. in Louisville Ky. USA. I believe that the #26/0221 car (Bourne body #26/0192) may be the 1st left hand drive car imported as there was a LH/1 inscribed in white marker on the inside of the trunk behind the drivers side seat under the matting. I am the 2nd owner of this vehicle. June 17, 2012 - Update: I sold my Elan to George and Clifford Stanwick of Atlanta, GA. George owns three S-1s (mine included) and his brother, Clifford, of California, also collects Lotus cars. The car was listed on and the response was phenomenal! I had inquires from as far away as Germany, and 28 offers. If you would like to view the photo album Google 1963 Lotus Elan S-1. There are several Filicker sites with full photos. I had this car for 42+ years, did all the restoration and maintenance including rebuilding the engine, transmission and differential, brakes etc. myself, and I will miss the car but it was time to move on.
