Not to start an argument but this is not a 1967 lotus Cortina.It's a MK1 which ended production in 1966.In 1967 the MK11 was introduced.If like the one I had it wasn't sold untill 1967 and thats the way it was listed on the title.So it's a 1966 MK1 lotus Cortina...and a very nice one at that.

About 1965 my mother was shopping for a used car in Miami.  It got narrowed down to two cars on the lot.  Both were $1,000.

A 1964 VW beetle and a Lotus Cortina (green stripe and all).  I was begging for the Cortina, she bought the bug.  

Drove the bug until 1977.
