Facts about the model

Tillverkningen av Lotus Cortina startade i början av 1963. Halvfärdiga bilar skickades från Ford i Dagenham till Lotus i Chesnut för slutmontering. Man hämtade dess twincam-motor och växellåda från Lotus Elan. Sprängkåpan var gjuten i aluminium. För att hålla nere vikten fick karossen dörrar, motorhuv och baklucka av aluminium. Cortinans bakfjädring byttes mot en Lotus-konstruktion, med skruvfjädrar, bakåtriktade bärarmar och ett A-format stag mellan diffen och golvet. Framvagnen fick nya fjädrar, stora skivbromsar och en snabbare styrväxel.
Från våren 1964 började alltfler standarddelar införas. Först byttes växellådan till en Cortina GT-låda med sprängkåpan i gjutjärn och aluminiumdelarna i karossen byttes ut mot billigare plåt.
Sommaren 1965 ersattes Lotus avancerade bakvagn av en Cortina GT-axel med längsgående bladfjädrar. Några månader senare byttes växellådan igen, nu till en Corsair-låda.
Tillverkningen av Lotus Cortina Mk I uppgick till knappt 2 900 exemplar.
Denna Lotus Cortina består av komponenter från både 1964 och 1965 års modell bättre ämnade för rallybruk. Historiken innan 1995 känner vi inte till.
