Buying a Lotus Cortina

Postby Rick » Thu Mar 30, 2017 2:55 pm

Over the past 7-10 days there have been 5 "Lotus Cortina's" for sale on the internet, they range from bare shells to part complete cars to cars on the road, not one of them is a Lotus Cortina, yet all are described as such.

The LCR are here to help prospective buyers through this potential minefield, Please before you part with your hard earned cash contact us to see if we have information on the car in question. you don't have to be a member to ask about LCs but there are benefits to membership when it comes to inspections etc.

I joined this forum years ago but I am very unfamiliar with Forum navigation.
I have rejoined to see what I can do with my Mark 1

I have a 66 Twin Cam that I've owned since 1982. I'm considering selling it.
The motor is in very good condition it drives great but needs interior, rubber, paint, and minimal body work. I had it cherry about 15 years ago but it became a dent magnet.
The intake manifold has the casted intake throats and not the bolt-on type. It's also perfect for vintage racing. I would like to know how to post it for sale or if you have any advice on how to handle it.
I will provide more info and pics when I can figure out how to post it.

Thanks, Mitch

Mitch
You need to post some photos on here so people can see what you are thinking of selling.
All Lotus TC engines had integral inlet manifolds, not bolt on, you might be thinking of a GT manifold?

Thanks you guys!
I'll pull her out of the garage and see if I can take some pics. Now that I know I'm in the right place on this forum, I think I can figure it out. I'll work on a bio with pics then I will attempt to post it.
Thanks for the help. You guys are great!

Mitch - can you confirm what country the car is located in. We have many international members , so I dont want to assume this car is in the UK.
