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.
1965 Ford Cortina GT MK1
• Rarely Seen European MKI Ford Cortina GT!
• Incredible Restoration!
• 1.5L OHV Kent 4 Cylinder!
• Manual Transmission
The Ford Cortina is a car built by Ford of Britain in various guises from
1962 to 1982, and was the United Kingdom's best-selling car of the 1970s.
The Cortina was produced in five generations (Mark I through to Mark V,
although officially the last one was called the Cortina 80) from 1962 until
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is thrilled to offer a rarely seen Ford from all
the way across the Pond! This 1965 Ford Cortina GT comes to us from a
prominent, private collection and has benefitted from an incredible, nut &
bolt restoration. This is one of the coolest European cars we've had in our
showroom in a long time and it's well worth a good look!
Finished in Monaco Red, the paint is in absolutely breathtaking condition.
We are hard pressed to find imperfections to the paint or even the body.
The body is extremely straight and solid. The chrome and bright work is
also in excellent condition. This Cortina shows very well and is sure to
turn heads, not only because it's so incredibly restored but also because
it's very rare that one sees a Cortina GT out and about!
The interior is very clean and simple. The black upholstery is in beautiful
condition and you will notice that there are late racing seats installed.
The carpet, door panels and headliner are all in comparable condition. The
color matched dashboard and dash pad are in wonderful condition, showing no
signs of fading or cracking. The dashboard houses a set of Auto Meter
Phantom gauges (Oil Pressure, Water Temperature, Fuel Level, Voltage) and
the original Ford Cortina speedometer and tachometer. These all look
awesome. There is also an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player as well.
Under the hood, you'll find that the engine bay is fresh and tidy. The
later model Mark II 1600, overhead valve, Kent 4-cylinder (casting #681F
6015DA) starts up easily and runs excellent! Upon the engine is what
appears to be an original two barrel carburetor and headers. The main
wiring harness has also been cleaned up by a Painless Performance kit.
Matched to the engine is a manual transmission, making this Cortina a blast
to drive! It has power front disc brakes and it sits upon a set of 13"
8-spoke, gunmetal Midland Wheels wrapped in a set of new 185/60R13 tires
that look great.
It's already very hard to find a Cortina GT; it's MUCH harder to find one
in condition such as this! The VIN is 3A77EG79301 and the mileage currently
shows 86,219. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND
