The world’s only station wagon from Ford and Lotus will be auctioned off

The Ford Cortina Lotus Mk 1 Estate Custom wagon will be sold at the upcoming RM Sotheby’s auction. Trading will take place from 23 to 24 October.

The unique car is going to be sold at a price of 35-50 thousand dollars. Note that the production of the original Ford Lotus Cortina station wagon has never been carried out. The car in the photos from 1956 to 2010 was the standard Ford Consul Cortina. The car was refined by a fan of the Lotus brand Bob Herzog. He cleaned the body of the paint completely and brought it in line with Lotus specifications.

Ford gets a suspension from the factory Lotus Cortina, a 5-speed manual transmission, and disc brakes. A 150-horsepower engine from Caterham Seven is used as a power unit.

The station wagon, in particular, got a classic livery with green stripes and wheels from Ford Cortina Lotus. The interior hasn’t received significant changes, except for the Recaro bucket seats and wood inserts in the luggage compartment.

In addition, it was recently noted that the 1991 Ford Bronco, from which the factory film was not removed, is for sale. It should be emphasized that this car with a starting rate of 20 thousand dollars of the American company has a fairly rich equipment.
