I think he is just throwing it out there and would take around $3500 Canadian for it.

And since I just bought Mark Cs Mk1 Cortina wagon (what was I THINKING!) I will be knee deep for the next decade or two - no drivetrain so that choice is wide open... :D

AC? Good grief next will sat/nav... I enjoy AC so i have no problem with adding it to any car, having sweated my across countries and continents without AC and having driven with AC in unsweaty mode. That said, the installed controls shown there are ABYSMAL, no integration into the dash/car. Form A...

It didn't sell very quickly when it was in Sask. I doubt things are going to be any better in B.C. at more than double the price. It looks to have potential but at the new price a willing customer may prove rare. Greg New owner has cleaned it up a little but it does have a lot of rust in the usual ...

I feel (almost) sorry for anyone who has what they believe to be a genuine Mk1 Lotus Cortina - and especially so when they put it up on BaT. While there are a select few who truly know these cars - and I applaud them for stepping up as they should and must do - for every one of these nice people the...

He has been trying to sell that for many. many months, will not respond to simple questions about the car and has dropped the price (depending on which ad. is running) but still is unable or unwilling to answer the most basic questions. Which goes a long way to explaining why he has been trying to s...

The last time I used one of these was doing the trunnions on my '51 Prefect...a weekly requirement if I remember - (actually you OILED the trunnions but I just wanted to say 'trunnions' once more before I die). And those items which required greasing had NIPPLES - there, I said it out loud. NIPPLES :D
