For sale by Classics Central Auctioneers on Sunday 30 October at the Bedford Autodrome. Thurleigh Airfield Business Park. just off the A6.
This exquisite Cortina MkI evocation has been finished to a very high standard. and is ideally set up for fast road specification with the flexibility to use as a basis for historic racing.
Running a 1600cc Kent crossflow engine. with big valve head and 280 degree cam. it is fed by twin-40 Weber carburettors and powers a Bullet close-ratio transmission.
The powerplant is set up for 10. 60-1 compression and features an alloy flywheel and AP Racing 3-plate clutch assembly. Fittingly. it is set up with Bilstein shock absorbers. and runs a disc brake setup on all four corners.
The suspension features dual front anti-roll bars and rear anti-roll struts with an axle tramp bar. Running on period-correct Lotus deep dish rims. the car's stance is impressive and is resplendent in Lotus Cortina's classical two-tone paint scheme.
Additional investment has been made in the fuel system which features braided hoses and a racing fuel cell mounted in the boot compartment. Overall. this car has been carefully crafted to produce what is described as a very fast machine with the looks and style that only a MkI Cortina can capture.
To be supplied with a full MoT and documents to prepare registration for its first UK owner. with this car having been delivered originally to South Africa.
