Ford Lotus Cortina Mk1 1964 - Wooden Plaque 148 x 105mm
The perfect gift for the Car Enthusiast in your life
The Lotus Cortina came about through the collaboration of Walter Hayes from Ford, Colin Chapman, Lotus and Keith Duckworth from Cosworth as Ford wanted a sporty saloon to raise their profile through competition. Launched in 1963 utilising a 1548cc over head cam engine that was also used in Lotus's Elan they had competition success and produced 3300 Mk1s. In 1967 the Mk2 was introduced using the new Mk2 Cortina body shell, it was more reliable although not as competitive it had a production run of 4000 before being discontinued in 1970.
The picture of produced on a 148 x 105 x 3mm piece of plywood drilled with one hole.
