Williams FW45


1961 S2 lotus 7 America,  Right hand drive, imported to NZ a few years ago, (ex Vermont, USA ) with its team mate a 58 Austin Healey Sprite SCCA car HP, my thinking, drive / keep  the lotus and sell the Healey 

Having just finished the Healey and its ready to race, I decided that the one I’m going to keep.

The Lotus has been in dry storage since the mid 1980s, and is period correct to the day it last ran, It arrived engine and box out, I have fitted and assembled everything, just not started, but was race ready, when stored.
