Andy Graham, archivist at Lotus Cars in Hethel, is offering a new service providing Certificates of Provenance for Lotus cars.
Those who take up the service will be provided with a Certificate of Provenance and covering letter that details how your car left Lotus. The certificte will, where available, include the car’s full VIN, model and variant, the original engine and gearbox serial numbers, body and trim colours, options, build date and the original dealer or distributor to which the car was dispatched. This service is available at £40-£50 including postage depending on the information available.
If enough information is available, a more in depth option will be offered for £75 which includes the above information as well as your car’s situation in the build sequence for its market and model along with how many other cars were produced in the same colour and trim combination.
The Certificate of Provenance is available for all models from the 1957 Lotus Seven. All you have to do is provide Andy with proof of ownership, including a copy of your most recent registration paper including VIN, engine number and your name and address.
