Car Catcher: A Lotus-Cortina That You Can Race, Drive or Show

Jim Clark did not drive this Lotus Cortina. Neither did Jacky Ickx or Jackie Stewart. So what does that mean? Instead of trading for six figures, this 1966 Lotus-Cortina is going for a more market-correct price of $69,500. (Hagerty lists $78,000 for one in No. 2 condition.)

Fantasy Junction is offering this one, and while it might not have any ties to racing royalty, its logbook does show entries back to the ’80s. “Today,” the listing says, “this purposefully built car has been prepared for both street use and vintage racing, exemplifying the dual-purpose use of a pump-gas street car while also delivering performance capability on the track. The overall visual condition reveals a nicely prepared car showing glossy paint over smooth body surfaces with racing livery touches.” See details here.
