Ford Lotus Cortina

In 1963 Walter Hayes from the Ford convinced the owner of the Lotus Colin Chapman collect a limited number of Cortina with engines Lotus. They were planning to release a 1000 cars, but the popularity of the model forced to collect three times more. In 1964, Jim Clark won the championship of the great Britain among the cars with closed body, and in 1965, sir John Vitmor won the championship of Europe among the cars with closed body. Model looked very simple from the outside, if not to count the green stripes. Lotus Cortina had a lower landing, it was MacPherson front suspension with new advanced springs and shock absorbers in the rear of the removed leaf springs and replaced them with A-frame, traction rods suspension and new shock absorbers. Used the standard bottom of Ford 1500, a double bedroom and two carburetor Weber. It was a great car to drive fast. In our days models Lotus Cortina are very expensive and are still used in races of old cars.
