  • Lotus 7 Owner looking for information about his car

    Posted from the GGLC chapman report.

    Dear Fellow Lotus Owners,

    I hope you can help me acquire some information about the history of my Lotus7. I imported the car to Australia in 2008. It has a California Depart-ment of Motor Vehicles ID plate DMV60045CA CODE4No.290045. I wonder if this prompts any memories? When I got the car, it was in a sorry state yellow all over, but when I removed the many coats of paint, the original light green color emerged. Intermediate layers were: red ,dark green, black and finally yellow. I think the car is a 1967-8 series 3, and it is fitted with a Ford
    1600cc cross-flow engine with a single down-draft Weber, plus an escort rear axle and a roll bar (since removed by me). I purchased the car from Michael Gue of Essex Racing Services on the East Coast, but he can’t help me with any history. I have tried the CA DMV, but only got through to an endless recorded message, expensive, long-distance call to go round in a loop. So I was hoping one of your members may be able to help.
