Nice looking car I reckon. The Lotus version must have been amusing.
next gen Lotus Cortina,four door silver,Rostyle wheels,
That would have been a Cortina 1600E, Lotus suspension but pushrod GT engine. The Lotus only came as a 2-door with plain (wide) wheels.
Give me a break, rose tinted memories....and i was very,very young(no jokes please!),lol.
Doesn't sound like any Cortina I've ever heard.
What a shame to not restore such a car to its original spec.
Thats exactly what i thought, I was just waiting for that distinctive Cortina sound when they started it up. I too wish he'd have restored it to original spec
I am with you both here, as what you hear is very queer. Is it a six?
I'm now on all fours

One of my Uncles had a Mark 1 in this colour when I was growing up, albeit in four door form. He ran it for years, long after most of them had disappeared off the roads, until it rotted away, never had any other car after that. And one of the reasons I love 'Carry on Cabby' is because of Hattie Jacque's fleet of Mark 1 Cortinas.
I agree. Those Mk1s have aged well in my opinion, especially with a decent set of wheels! Wonder how well modern cars will look in 50 years?
My Dad had the GT,green chevrons down the side,followed that with next gen Lotus Cortina,four door silver,Rostyle wheels,them was the days!
Cortina was a more conventional design than its predecessor and was largely appreciated by fleet buyers. Generally a rebody of the Mark III, as an integration of Ford's model range, this car was really a rebadged Ford Taunus. good info
