I have known Claude for 30 plus years. Anything he says you can take to the bank as they say.

Hell of a deal on a great car.

I had the pleasure of meeting Claude a few years ago and I agree with Tony. I've seen the car and it's a beauty.

Thanks guys, much appreciated.

To answer Bill's question, VIN is 26/3840, so could be considered as S1.5 as some Lotus books mention. May well be a 1964 car as well, but registered as 1965 as the VIN plate says 'US 65'. Cheers!
