I actually like the car but it don't look Lotus, perhaps a nice rare early GT though?

Here's a response from the Cortina-list forum :

It's a total clone !
couple of teeny weeny problems here ........
Pre-airflow LC's where never built in LHD
If you look at the trunk and under trunk area - no hump, no support tubes for rear wheel arches, and it has a spring assisted trunk lid (pre-airflow LC had simple hinges and a trunk stay on the RHS)
Note also the mention of it being car #129 0n the 67 Monte. Problem is, that car was a LHD Airflow car ........ doh !

Well this car was amazingly bid up to 45 GRAND and the seller still wasn't happy with that(reserve not met) I wonder if anyone ever challenged the seller on his facts. Here is a real picture of what that car is supposed to be.

#129 in the picture is an airflow model. So it probably isn't the same car advertised which is a pre-airflow.

Precisely my point.
