Auction of 1965 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk 1 ENJ 712C

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.

Lotus Cortina Mk1 Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction 2013
Bonham's Quail Lodge Auction of the Stan Hallinan 1966 Lotus Cortina Mk1 16 Aug 2013 Lot 162 http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/20994/lot/162/?page_anchor=MR1_page_lots%3D 17%26r1%3D10%26b1%3Dlist%26m1%3D1 Chassis no. BA74FT59409 1,558cc DOHC Inline 4-Cylinder Engine 2 Weber Carburetors 105bhp 4-Speed Manual Transmission Independent Front Suspension, Rear Leaf Springs Front Disc, Rear Drum Brakes *Only 6,247 miles from new *Unmodified, unmolested, totally original example *Icon of the Swinging Sixties *Desirable late Mk1 example *Only one owner from new "The Motorcar Offered "Retrieved from the late Stan Hallinan's magical storage barn concurrently with this remarkably discerning enthusiast's stunning Lister-Chevrolet (Lot 163) and Shelby AC Cobra Roadster (Lot 161), this Lotus Cortina sports saloon is one of the most incredible 'time machine' cars that our experienced team have ever had the privilege to handle. Hallinan purchased his Cortina new from Grappone Ford, of Concord, New Hampshire, where incidentally he worked at the time. The date of his purchase was recorded as November 22nd, 1968. He drove it sparingly over the course of the next few summers, accumulating just over 6,000 miles before the Cortina was parked and carefully stored for the next 40+ years. Opening a door one finds an almost unmarked, amazingly well preserved while charmingly patinated interior which is being passed down to us from the era of the 1960s. The effect is as if the '70s-80s-90s-noughties have never happened. Or if they really have happened to the rest of us mere mortals, then this magnificent Lotus-Cortina played no part in them. It is -- as with the other Stan Hallinan Collection cars -- a machine which time passed by. Only very, very rarely today do untouched as-original motor cars emerge onto the open market. There is an ever-diminishing world treasury of unrestored, unsullied cars surviving. As this number diminishes, and as appreciation of such treasures grows within the automobile fraternity worldwide, so customer demand is outstripping supply. Originality, once lost, can never be regained. So here we are privileged to offer the most remarkably attractive Ford Lotus Cortina -- or Lotus Type 28 -- that our hugely experienced team has ever had the delight to encounter. For us the relationship in recent months with this amazing time-warp Lotus-Cortina has been memorable. For a discerning connoisseur of all things Ford, or Lotus, we doubt we will ever -- ever - encounter another one quite like Mr Hallinan's now offered here. This is, therefore, a one-time opportunity." SOLD FOR US$ 105,000 [plus buyer's premium. The above notes are from the Bonhams sale catalogue. The bidding took place at midnight British Summer Time]
