  • This MK1 Lotus Cortina was first registered to Lotus Cars Sales Department in Waltham Cross on 13th May 1965 and was kept by them until August 1967 when it was sold to the Seaford Service Station in Sussex and was presumably used as Demonstrator or Management vehicle as confirmed in the original buff Log book while in Lotus Ownership. The Lotus is an older restoration being with the last owner since 1998 and regularly attended classic car shows and events. The engine was rebuilt in 2009 and at the time new 45 DCOE Webber Carbs were fitted, Uprated Cam Shafts, Sprint Valves, There is a Dyno report after the engine was run in at circa 36,300 miles showing that the Lotus was producing 150 BHP at the wheels, The Lotus presents well with old Log Book and V5 registration documents and previous MOT certificates dating back to 1998 when it had 35,928 miles recorded on the Speedo, there is no earlier history so we are not able to warrant the low mileage, but she is very sweet and honest in all areas. Recently had new battery, starter motor and solenoid and brake master cylinder, Checks correct with all build data against the chassis number and its quite lovely that her first owner was Lotus Cars themselves. In the photographs I have included a close up of the chassis plate so you can check for yourself. Fitted with a stainless steel exhaust which enhances the exhaust note and appears good value in the current Mk 1 market.
