Barons auction of Lot 123, Ford/Lotus Cortina Mk1 ENJ 712C, on Tuesday 27 October 2009 which can be glimpsed at the left of the picture.
The guide price was £25K to £30K.
The sale catalogue description : "...Offered here is a 1965 example of the Lotus Cortina, which has been the subject of a nut and bolt rebuild, which was started in 1998 and only completed in 2008. The vendor acquired the car, in a dismantled state, in 1998 and began to restore it to original specification. It has covered a mere 20 miles since the completion of the restoration and now sports leaf springs, rather than A Bracket rear suspension and a replica SE steering wheel.
Finished in the definitive white with green Lotus flashes, the car has been fitted with many new panels, which included inner and outer wings, front panel, rear panels, one rear quarter panel, new chassis cross member, front jacking members and a full strip down of the body shell before dipping, priming, painting and treating with Waxoyle. This work was carried out by a professional body shop in 1999 and the car was then stored until 2008.
In 2008 the vendor commenced the final phase of his plan and equipped the car with a fully rebuilt engine, with a QED, unleaded, cylinder head, new pistons, reground crank, new water pump, timing chains and all new bearings. The Webber's were reconditioned by Northampton Motorsport and a new fuel tank was supplied and fitted as was a new, complete, Borg and Beck clutch assembly. With a freshly restored radiator, from SERCK services, all new hoses and a NOS Exhaust system, the engine was fired up and set up.
Additional works have included new brake pipes, calipers and discs, new rear wheel cylinders, new ball joints, bushes and shocks, wiring checked and renewed where required, new headlining, front seat covers, door cards and carpets, new glass rubbers and new weather seals...".
The Australian telephone bidder dropped out at £29K.

This is my second race of the weekend in my 1965 Lotus Cortina Mk1. I
arrived to the grid late, so I had a lot of work to do to work through
traffic. It was a lot of fun, and I advanced from 15th to 1st!

Watch the 2015 Ford F-450 6.7L Diesel Super Duty Debut at the State Fair of Texas
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) Ford introduced its 2015 F-Series Super Duty
lineup at the Texas State Fair and the big news is a better Power Stroke V8
turbo diesel engine. They've also beefed
up the F-450 to make it even tougher. The new Power Stroke features a
larger GT37 turbocharger that measures
72.5 millimeters in diameter versus the smaller GT32 it replaces which came
in at 64 millimeters. This means Exhaust gases have a larger surface area to spin
the turbo so you'll get extra power.
