CoC is a "Certfificate of Conformity" to EC regulations.
A CoC is only needed for car from 1992/3 on.
Cars before 1993 did not have a CoC and you do not get one.
1964 S1 (engine ready, awainting body repair)
1967 S3 DHC (now adjusted by Brian Buckland, totally calm idle)
1969 S4 FHC (finishing interior, changing wiring loom)

Brian Bucklands 2nd edition book can be found here: www.theelanman.com

These certificates are issued by the manufacturer, Lotus Cars. The French authorities always insist on one, even for pre-1993 cars. However, as Lotus does not have full representation in many countries (not in France in any case) and so you need to contact Andy Graham, Archivist.

There is a small charge (£118 I think) but for this Lotus will also provide the Certificate of Provenance.
