Chassis: 951
Chassis 951 was the second Lotus 19 produced and it was sold to the Arciero Brothers for Dan Gurney to race. The talented American drove the red liveried machine to numerous victories, including at the 1960 Nassau Speed Week and the legendary win in the Daytona 3 Hours. This was the first ever sports car race at the legendary track. The car was subsequently fitted with a V8 engine but has since been fully restored to its original configuration. Still owned by the Arciero family, the famous Lotus 19 is seen here at the 2010 Monterey Motorsport Reunion where Dan Gurney was honoured.
