Here's something else to wonder at:

But it is a Cortina part.

I still feel a little protective towards the Lotus Cortina, as I started with these in the 70s, and the 'real' Lotus guys didn't seem to recognise them as anything other than a Cortina. Things have changed a little, at least in price terms!

I remember going to one of the Lotus shows in the 80s in a chum's Twincam Escort...one of the 3 red ones built. He wanted to park it with the assembled Lotii, but the git on the gate assured us that the car was of no interest to the people attending the show, and it should be parked in the main car park. Luckily, Graham Arnold wandered past at this time and put the gate man (a well known Lotus enthusiast) right, and the Escort was one of the stars of the show. OK, not a Lotus as such, but like the Mk 2 Lotus Cortina, all part of the heritage.
