Newly built using mainly new parts, this vehicle is in great condition.

The current owner built it to compete and race here in Finland at the Historic track races, unfortunately due to personal reasons the car now needs to be sold. It has been tested on the track and performs extremely well, driven around 150km since the build.

The identification of this vehicle is from a Swedish registered 1963 Consul Cortina Lotus, manufactured in May and first registered in September 1963.

  • Z – Dagenham assembly
  • 74– Cortina saloon two-door Deluxe–all Lotus Cortina Mk1 Cars
  • C – 1963 model year
  • 065831– Serial number
  • L – May production
  • Model No. 125E – Car designated for Lotus Twin-Cam engine
  • Paint Code BA – Ermine White
  • Trim Comb. No. A875 – Lotus final assembly

As you will notice though, this shell/body is not from a 63/64 car and is from a 65. So, this is an Airflow model and not a Pre-Airlow as per the registration certificate. This never bothered the owner as he originally built it to race and never thought about selling it.

FIA passport was issued on 05/10/2021 and is valid until 31/12/203.

The engine has been fully rebuilt with mainly new parts.

  • Accralite pistons.
  • Steel conrods.
  • Camshafts manufactured in Finland.
  • Weber 45DCOE Carburettors.

The gearbox has new race gearing from Lampola Gearboxes, Finnish company. Also new clutch fitted.

All new Bilstein suspension, new or refurbished brakes.

New Limited Slip Differential with 4.7 ratio.

Very well built and strong roll cage, built to FIA regulations in Finland.

Bonnet, boot and door outer skins are as they should be and in Aluminium.

Some other extras to mention:

  • New foam filled alloy fuel tank.
  • New electrics.
  • New twin Facet electric fuel pumps.
  • New lightweight battery.
  • New oil cooler.
  • Perspex windows and rear screen, front windows slid up/down.

I am sure there are some pointers that I am missing. I have around 100 detailed photos that can be supplied upon request, these were taken by me and will show a lot more.

This Ford Lotus Cortina Mk1 FIA track car can be shipped worldwide!

It is being sold on behalf of the owner, not a car owned by us.
