Re: 1968 Lotus Cortina on BAT

That may have been Steve Patti, Boerne, Tx. Don't know if he ever sold his '67 LC.

Re: 1968 Lotus Cortina on BAT

Built in May '67. Probably sold at the end of '67 as a '68 in Canada. I know of only one in the U.S., Texas

Re: 1962 FORD CONSUL CAPRI - $23,000 (N. DENVER)

I've driven one that a gal owned in the mid-80's with a 1600 Pinto engine. It feels tail heavy speeding on curves. Don't know if any were ever used as race cars.

Anglia '67 race car

Surprised to see one listed in HMB. Lived there in the 60's / 70's. I'm only 20 miles from HMB so i'll be happy to check it out for anyone that's interested to buy.

Re: Correct Stock Radiator Cap

4 lbs caps were sufficient when only water was used as coolant and compression ratio ~7:1. Nowadays all engines use mixture of water / coolant which increases thermal pressure and prevents rust accumulating in the system and lubes the w/pump seal. Though 4 lbs cap would still be ok on a standard 100...

Re: BAT: '68 Cortina GT

It may have the original 12K. What concerns me is the engine was swapped in favor of the '70 motor. So we don't know the true mileage on that engine.
There is quite amount of rust on the rear axle and drum plates, assuming the car sat outside during most of its life.

Re: BAT: '68 Cortina GT

Not much of a fan of bright yellow. Do like the color of your old LC though Brett. Looks more like a darker shade of yellow with a bit of mixed brown paint.

Don't know about how the rest of the group feels about this but having doubts that this car actually only has 12K from new ?
