Donated 1963 Lotus Draws Over $20,000 For Animal Charity

LotusFrom time to time we have the happy privilege of seeing a beauty of a collector car come rolling through our program. Most often, cars of a certain age are recycle ready and draw reluctant interest from potential buyers. But sometimes we see a show-stopper like this 1963 Lotus Super Seven Series II dream boat!

With an original Lotus 7 frame, and a Lotus engine, stamped Lotus 2Ecurie Canada, the car drew curious attention throughout Ontario.

She came to us as-seen, having a rich history that included being raced in Quebec in 1970 with Robert Roy at the wheel. The Lotus was also entered into some Concours d’elegance, near Toronto, through the last 20 years.

Lotus 3Our diligent agent saw the value in this ol’ girl, and he put in the legwork of promoting her to his broad buyer base. Fielding calls from the curious and the committed alike, his hard work eventually resulted in a sale outcome double what the donor hoped for!


Lotus legacy to make a lasting impact!

The Fortier family selected the Ottawa Humane Society as their charity of Lotus 4choice. Little did they know, coming to us with hopes of a return of “around $10,000.00,” that their beloved keepsake would bring such a fabulous return for the cause they love.

With a gift that will exceed $20,000.00 scheduled to be disbursed to the OHS this month end, we are delighted to celebrate one of the strongest donation outcomes in the history of Donate a Car Canada! Our heartfelt thanks for the generosity of our donor family, and the engaged and devoted efforts of our re-sale agent!
