1969 Ford Lotus Cortina

Wonder if we're alone in preferring the Cortina Mk2 to the Mk1? If you look at the relative values and desirability of the Lotus versions of both, it would certainly appear to be the case. Still, if you're after a Mk2 Lotus Cortina, then you're clearly someone who enjoys a great car, but also on the right side of sensible - good on you! This one, which estimates at £12,000-15,000 has been properly looked after, stored in a climate controlled environment, as part of a cherished collection. Mileage stands at 41,489 miles, and the interior and exterior are both good, both correctrly patinated for the age. It would be a shame for the nexct owner to keep it under lock and key - these cars are meant to be driven!
