    cossied mk 2 lotus cortina

    thought it was about time I did my own post on me tina.I've had the car since 1988,a genuine 1967 lotus.bought minus engine,so I pinto'ed it.I was in the 1st dyno shootout in FASTCAR,1989.converted to cossie 1990/1991,featured in FASTCAR again in 1991 with stage 1 chip,13 inch mag minilites ,red & gold paint work,etc. converted the car to left hand drive,side exit exhaust,stage 3 chip etc,featured in PERFORMANCE FORD,STREET MACHINE,RETRO ,1996/1997.in late 97 I did a dyno shootout for FASTFORD,made 351 bhp on3 and a half cyls,finally killed the motor,melted piston etc!!!! so I pulled the motor and decided on another major rebuild,heres the new spec

    Hi!

    Nasty looking Cortina!

    Are the colours the original Alan Mann racing team colours? If they are would you happen to remember the codes for them. I have a MK2 Cortina too and I've been searching for the colorcodes for ages but haven't succeeded.

    Cheers,
    Ville

    yeah,can you get over to me about 1'ish,you can see the tina in the flesh again then dan!and to ' ville 1600gt',the red I've used is bmw brilliant red,but the gold is just from a colour chart,and this was painted about 12 years ago!although I must say that the colours i used seem to match the alan mann cars VERY closely,hope this helps, puddy.
