Lotus Seven S2, 1960. Superb restoration finished in June 2014. (1960)




Lotus Seven S2, 1960.  Superb restoration finished in June 2014.  Rebuilt to a very high standard on the original chassis frame.   Originally shipped to the U.S.A. in 1960 and supplied to Jay Chamberlain of Los Angeles, California who had a close business relationship with Colin Chapman at the time and was  the chosen US importer.   The early Sevens to the US were designated the “7 America”, when the Seven was still only produced in R.H.D. form at the time.  Certified by the Lotus factory as a matching frame and VIN /chassis plate numbers car and a 1960 car fitted with the 948cc Sprite engine.   Comes with the certificate of provenance from Lotus Cars Ltd.  Frame and re-skin carried out by Mick Beverage who did the work on former  Formula 1 driver Piers Courage’s Seven.  The frame was in very good shape due to the Californian climate and was  sympathetically restored accordingly.    The Seven has been rebuilt  to an exacting no expense spared standard with great attention to detail.  Engine rebuilt to fast road specification, gearbox rebuilt and a fully rebuilt correct Standard 10 rear axle.  Correct 13 X 3 1/2” Triumph Herald steel wheels.   Has it’s original Chassis Plate and frame number.   A pure delight in every respect.
