Description

MK1 CORTINA ALAN MANN RECREATION

This is UK RHD Mk1 Cortina in Alan Mann livery of red and gold fitted with a Lotus Twin Cam engine.
Please remember this car is now 55 years old
Some minor bubbling to a couple of areas has has welding in the past and the paintwork isnt the best , Front wings are steel

Please note this car is useable and as below do not expect a concourse car.

It’s not going to win any concours awards however, it certainly attracts attention and an abundance of admirers who can appreciate it for what it is
A period survivor car which looks and sounds awesome, and of course is loads of fun.
I am unsure of the engine spec however, the engine is excellent with no smoke or unwanted noises and pulls very well.
The gear change is nice & crisp having had new bush in the remote.
The front wings are steel, and grp lightweight panels are fitted to both doors, bootlid and bonnet.
At the rear is an English axle with a 4:4 diff, 5 leaf rear springs, Anti-tramp bars, Lotus diff hump in boot.
Up front are adjustable coil overs.
High torque starter motor. Original sump fabricated into big wing.
lotus engine pull strong and sounds devine , does have oil leak from rocker cover ( all lotus's do pretty Much )
A few of the gauges require hooking up but all other electrics work fine including all lights, wipers, horn, indicators etc.
Most of the wiring has been upgraded, and there is a fuse box situated in the glovebox.
Although no headlining, the interior is a nice place to sit with new seats and carpets.
A Lotus dash is fitted along with Lotus speedo and rev counter.
All lines run inside the car and currently retains a hydraulic handbrake (normal type handbrake supplied).
The underside is nice and solid and does not require anything.
The car is obviously sold as seen, and although mot and tax exempt, the car is currently legally insured and taxed
I am more than happy to take genuine interested parties for a decent test drive to prove that the car drives spot on.
It wouldn’t take much to return it to a competition car if needed; it would require ‘in date’ seats, harnesses and placing back the extinguisher (all plumbing is still in place). Car comes with door bars, extinguisher, navigators alloy footrest and large range fuel tank.

This car is £15.000 and not a £25.000 Mk1 Cortina Lotus Rep or a £60.000 Genuine Lotus
