1465 or 1515 to be an Elite Lifter?
Yes, certainly for that age range. My first local NATURAL (I was tested) powerlifting meet I hit a 1501 total. I was the top lifter. The second lifter had a 1350 total.

1400 to 1500 is great for naturals who are raw. Youtube twists our perception of strong. There have only been under 90 untested raw lifters in the history of the sport that have hit 2000 raw.

Is shooting for "Elite" classification over a 2 or 3 year period a realistic goal for someone 56?
Yes! Drive is a wonderful thing. I transitioned in 3 years from a torn shoulder and weak deadlift into a near-Elite lifter. Certainly can be done.
