100th Lotus Eleven produced (Series 1). Imported by Jay Chamberlain in 1956 and raced on West Coast. According to 2 logbooks, was raced by Dudley Cunningham in the 1990's and purchased by Donald Kaas of Philadelphia in late 90's who had it restored. I purchased it in 2000 from Mr Kaas and the car has been in an auto museum since.
