1960 Lotus Elite
This 1960 Series 2 Lotus elite was shipped from the factory on October 19, 1960 to Jay Chaimberlain, race driver and the first Lotus US importer, in California. It was initially sold to Jerry Golden. In 1966, the car was sold to Dennis Ortenburger who kept the car for 47 years. Dennis is the author of several books on Lotus, including 'Lotus Elite, Racing Car for the Road,' which is considered one of the best books on the Elite. Dennis showed the car in many concours events and extensively vintage raced it as well. Like many Elites raced in the United States EB 1461 is now equipped with a more powerful 1,500cc FWB Climax engine.

The current owner purchased the car in 2013. It underwent a thorough restoration in 2014/15.
