We are pleased to offer this 1966 Lotus Cortina for sale. This is a very rare car with just 660 left-hand drive cars built and only 160 originally delivered to the North American market. This is a genuine Lotus Cortina that we have had verified as authentic by Mark Kempson of lotuscortinainfo.com. The body number 436 LHD 223 identifies this as the 223rd left-hand drive car built. The engine is correct and has engine number LP5565L. This has been a California car all its life and has lived in the San Francisco Bay area for a majority of that time. The car does come with its original black-and-gold license plate that it wore until recently when the car was sold and registered with a new plate. The original plate can be reused but will need to be approved by the DMV. The car runs and drives fantastic and is ready to go anywhere. The body is fantastic showing no accident damage or rust. This is a very special car that we very rarely see come on the market for sale. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have.
