1970 Ford Cortina Lotus
This car is well known to the Lotus Cortina Register. It cannot be described as original as it underwent a major restoration 15 years ago.
After 11 years of ownership I have reached the point where I have done everything I could do with it and its time to move on to something different. Apart from attending numerous car shows in the UK and having been on display 3 times at the NEC, YMK has travelled for several years into Europe including France, Belgium and Holland.
It passed its MOT in April and has just had a new 3 piece clutch fitted.
The Nick Stagg rebuilt twincam engine produces just under 130bhp. More than the book value of 109 due to modifications.
Everyone says it should be white but the Mk2 Cortina was available in many colours. YMK was red but has been white and amber gold over the years. I have MOTs back to 1980 and lots of other history. Out of its 47 years 35 years have been with just two owners including me.
This car is brilliant fun to drive and turns heads wherever you go. Its a challenge at every petrol station to avoid the I had a Cortina conversations. In the 60s and 70s the choice was far less so indeed everyone had a family member with a connection to a Cortina.
This car is not concours as it is maintained to be driven and enjoyed. Technically there are some items not original (Dellorto carbs, no airbox, servo changed, doors from a series 1 car etc) but these are minor items only immediately obvious to the trained eye.
Interesting history notes available and loads of photos.
Corgi model of this very car now available.
Viewing available M20 or M2 services in Kent by prior arrangement.
How much? looking for £25k currently insured for £28k.
