One of just 64 produced
1964 Lotus-Ford Consul Cortina Mk 1 Special Equipment Saloon
Chassis no. Z74424363D
The Ford Cortina GT was already building a major reputation for competitive success in International rallying and circuit racing when Walter Hayes of the British Ford of Dagenham company approached Colin Chapman and Lotus to build further upon this firm base.

The new Ford Cortina-Lotus or 'Lotus-Cortina' entered production in February 1963, with a starting price of £910. While the road cars boasted 105bhp, the racing version possessed more like 150bhp. Once fully developed the Lotus-Cortinas absolutely shone on track, on every Continent bar Antarctica. Lotus-Cortina star drivers included Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Graham Hill, Jackie Ickx, Sir John Whitmore, Frank Gardner, Roger Clark, Vic Elford, Trevor Taylor, Peter Arundell, Jack Sears and many, many more.

This example of the legendary 'Lotus-Cortina' is magnificently well presented
