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.
