The second incarnation of the Cortina was designed by Roy Haynes
and was launched on 18th October 1966. One of the best loved
versions of that Cortina appeared in 1967. the 1600E. which was
introduced at the Paris Motor Show in October of that year. The
mechanical specification included an 88bhp. 1600cc Cortina GT
engine which achieved a fuel consumption of 25 miles per gallon.
Following on from the enormous success of the Lotus Cortina Mk. I. br/>Ford introduced the Cortina-Lotus Mk. II in 1967 with the famous
Lotus twin cam engine now giving 109bhp. Ford renamed the Lotus
version the Cortina-Lotus. due to its manufacture at Ford's
Dagenham plant in Essex. This came about through their move from
Cheshunt to Hethel in 1966. As an aside. the well-known stripe that
adorns the Ford Cortina-Lotus models was never applied by the
factory and was made a dealer option only.

This 1968 Ford Cortina Lotus Mk. II was subject to a complete
restoration in the late 1980's at which time the original body
shell was found to be beyond repair so a replacement was found and
the car was rebuilt using all the original components. The last
owner purchased the car in 2000 and has kept it in very good
condition throughout. Finished in the classic Lotus colours of
white with green stripe and black interior. this Mk. II Cortina is
supplied with a V5C registration document. an MoT test certificate
which expires in February 2017. the old blue V5C and copies of
earlier registration documents. The Lotus Cortina. quite rightly. br/>earned an awesome reputation in its day and these models are now
highly prized - this is an opportunity to acquire an iconic piece
of motoring competition history.
