Great pics. Shows the slight grill difference between the '64 and '65 models. I had a Cortina in 1965, EUK123C just a 1300 in white but by the time I had blacked out the grill taken off the wheel trims and driven it like an idiot it was all but a Lotus.

 

This iconic car doesn't look much by today's standards but it was to motoring then what the Beatles were to music, life changing.

Looks like Jim Clark is the only one of them with opposite lock.

 

But then again, Jim was a bit special.

Was at Hockenheim, that faithful day in April.

Looks like he was well & truly in the process of murdering the apex while he was at it. Tight as can be was that line.
