Description

William I'Anson Ltd are pleased to offer for sale this very attractive 1959 Lotus Eleven Series 2 to Le Mans Specification.

A very late production 1959 Lotus Eleven Series 2 with chassis number 547, sold new to the U.S.A. The last of three complete Lotus Elevens to leave the factory.

Reportedly raced from the first owner in the U.S.A. Rebuilt to Le Mans specification when imported into Australia in 1993. 547 was then raced in Australia with the last four owners.

Benefitting from a Coventry Climax FWB engine, 547 would be a charismatic entry to the very enjoyable Motor Racing Legends Stirling Moss Trophy series, with the potential to also join pre-’66 grids, and a superbly usable road car.
