HISTORY FILE
Production of the Lotus developed Cortina commenced in February 1963 and 444YKK was the 88th example to be built in April 1963 by Lotus at its plant in Cheshunt. Supplied by Haynes of Maidstone to a Mrs D Hay-Bolton on the 16th July 1963, this prime example has been owned by some highly regarded and well known Lotus Cortina Club members. The late Trevor Barefoot being just one. He has created some of the most authentic restorations of Pre-Aeroflow cars and along with this example, has owned some of the most desirable Lotus Cortinas including 550VAR, (ex Jim Clarke road car) and Bruce Reynolds’s Great Train Robbery car BMK723A! Everything from the original build sheet and green Buff logbook to the full engine rebuild and restoration in 2014 is catalogued. The history file is immense and includes valuable Lotus Club valuations, historic invoices and MOT certificates, original newspaper print Lotus Cortina adverts and road test reports and even more recent magazine features including Practical Classics Lotus Cortina Mk1 buyers Guide and Classic Cars magazine group test. The car has also been featured in Quarter Bumper, the magazine of the Lotus Cortina Register. With so many spurious examples lacking history and correct specification, this example will please the most discerning.
