Well returning to Cortina ownership started here so it's fitting it ends here as well. After 11 years of fun it is time for my Mk2 Cortina Lotus to move on to the care of someone else.
Before I start
a) yes I've tried to sell before at the wrong time of year but it's serious now the car has to go, but i'm in no rush.
B) yes I will miss it but nothing in life is forever and I need a new challenge. So it's out with the old and in with the new. No idea what just wait and see what catches my eye.
So the car:
Registered April 1970 - not original had major resto 15 years ago. Including me only 2 owners for 35 of the 47 years.
MOT until April 2018 - mot's back to 1980 support my belief that the car has done 135k.
Plenty of history and photographs.
NOT CONCOURS - it's good but there is still room for improvement.
129bhp on rolling road a few months ago. Rear Securon seat belts.
Wrong bits - series 1 doors, changed carbs and servo, no rocking horse poo airbox, drivers seat is a passenger seat.
Car was red originally but has also been white and amber gold.
Turns heads in every petrol station.
Loads done over 11 years all listed.
Has been to France, Holland, Belgium and the Isle of Man. Brilliant fun to drive abroad.
Car can be seen in Kent by agreement or I hope to be at Gaydon 16th July and Stowe on 22nd July.
Looking for £30,000.00, so no silly offers please.
