Might change the steering wheel, however.

I see some rust on drivers side rear shock tower? And those boards on the floors are telling me the floors aren't too sturdy. But for a good driver, it's not a bad price

Looks okay, except for the items noted above - and the paint job - and the seats, trim etc.

Those are decent engines and it appears to have all been done quite well, assuming the ad. is correct and not just wishing and hoping.

I think this belongs to a member on this site. I recall somebody about to drive a cross country in their Mk2. Here is the link of it being test driven. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCagqnH4dewYIytKQLeBv6CQ

That vid shows a major blemish on driver's side rear fender that is not shown in the ad. Hmm.

Hmmm indeed, no pics of the driver's side at all.

The seller has updated the ad. He also added pics showing very good floors. Looks like a decent buy to me.

I'm confused - is this '67 GT clone the same car pictured in the link above (a non-GT '68 auto)? I remember when the '68's Craigslist ad was featured on BAT in August.

I think he means that the Lotus clone started out as that automatic car and was converted to a stick.

I'm asking the GT/Lotus clone currently for sale in Oregon is the same car as the '68 auto for sale last August on CL? I think it is, which means that it was not originally a '67 GT as the Oregon craigslist seller is implying. It's also clear from the earlier enfo thread that the conversion (pinto engine, manual transmission, and presumably the GT dash) was done by the guy who took it to North Carolina and not by the current CL seller in Oregon.

I'm interested in the car - do the experts on here think it matters if it wasn't originally a GT?

Depends on what you want. If you're ok having a pinto engine and not a crossflow w/ 4 speed per the "dream" gt option.

Cortina's are nice but they're never going to be big money, or even money cars. With that in mind, if this tickles your fancy and your familiar with common issues, go for it.

Personally I'd stuff some sort of bda/bdg in a cortina over a regular pinto but to each their own.

Define 'big money'.

And getting hold of a BDA or similar here is expensive.

Big money = over $50,000.

Non lotus Cortina's are LUCKY if they come close to half of that. When referring to a BDA, it was if I had deep pockets (or any pockets).
