Yes, that's a Lotus Seven S1 from about 1959. I owned one for about 20 years. It would have had an A Series (or Coventry Climax) engine originally but a Ford 1300 had been "transplanted" with the exhaust running via the passenger footwell. I bought it with a bent chassis so had it repaired at Arch Motors with an S3 front end. Paranoid about the alloy nose, I copied it in GRP for everyday use. Another car I should never have sold!!!
