*** Information in English: A quite rare LHD ’66 Ford Lotus Cortina MK1. Built at the Dagenham Ford UK plant in April 1966 and later that year supplied to its first owner in Georgia, the USA. At the end of 1997 the car found its way to Sweden, where it underwent a complete mechanical rebuild and restoration to its original spec. The superb bodywork is nice and straight with perfect body panel fittings. The brilliant paintwork has great lustre. The underbody is in perfect order and colour coded white! The car was MOT`d late 2104 and registered for road use in 2016. Since then the car has only clocked up 742 km!! This is an original LHD Ford Lotus Cortina MK 1 with the famous 106 Hp Lotus 1600 Twin Cam engine with close-ratio gearbox from the Lotus Elan. It has been finished in ‘Ermine White and Sherwood Green’ with a black vinyl interior trim (seats and carpets). In 1966 the total production figure was only 991 with less than 10% being LHD, making this a rare Lotus Cortina MK 1 with an interesting and correct history.

Het betreft hier een origineel links gestuurd (LHD) exemplaar. Deze Lotus Ford is nieuw gebouwd in Dagenham, UK in april 1966 en werd later in het jaar aan haar eerste eigenaar in Georgia, USA geleverd. Eind 1997 werd de auto geëxporteerd naar Zweden. In opdracht van de Zweedse eigenaar werd de Lotus volledig gerestaureerd en technisch gereviseerd volgens originele specificaties. De carrosserie is subliem, strak en heeft perfecte passingen. Het lakwerk is prachtig en heeft een mooie glans. De onderzijde is prachtig en uitgevoerd in carrosserie kleur wit! Eind 2014 werd de auto gekeurd om vervolgens in 2016 pas geregistreerd te worden. Nadien is er slechts 742 kilometer mee gereden!! Dit is dus een originele LHD Lotus Ford Cortina MK1, voorzien van de befaamde 106 pk sterke Lotus 1600 Twin Cam motor en close-ratio versnellingsbak, afkomstig uit een Lotus Elan. Uitgevoerd in haar originele kleurstelling ‘Ermine White’ met ‘Sherwood Green’, gecombineerd met een zwart skai interieur incl. zwarte vloerbedekking. In 1966 werden slechts 991 exemplaren geproduceerd, waarvan weinig LHD. Kortom, een bijzondere Lotus Cortina MK1 met een prachtige en correcte historie.
