Comments: This car was originally an S3 coupe that became a DHC somewhere along the way. It has also apparently been "converted" to SE specs since it has most of the visible S3 upgrades, but the Lotus list doesn't show the SE version being available until well after mine was built. MIke Pomfret reports that the car's dispatch date was April 27, 1966, the original order# was 2881, and the importer was BMCD (British Motor Car Distributors. I have owned the car since 2/02.
