This particular Lotus Cortina is presented in great usable condition and was purchased new by the notable Mr Fred Bushell who was both the Chairman of Team Lotus and a Director of Lotus Cars at the time and owned the car until 1986 and during his tenureship was maintained by the Lotus factory. From what we can gather the Cortina was used Mrs Bushell as her daily driver and was maintained by the Lotus factory themselves during this time. It was then sold to Mr Utting in 1986 who confirmed with the factory that the mileage of 36,000 was genuine and matched the factory records.
Complete with a lovely history file which includes the original handbooks and brochures, previous V5’s, various bills and invoices for works carried out , documentation from Granada television regarding it’s TV appearence on ITV’s The Grimley’s’, plus lots more…….two boxfiles in fact.
This Cortina drives fantastically and is a real piece of Ford/Lotus history and is surely an opportunity not to be missed.
