    135 “barn find” cars going under the hammer

    I thought @zefarelly might like to put in a bid for the Lotus Cortina, listed as a Ford Cortina but looks like a Lotus Cortina to me

    Some nice and strange cars there, most looking like they need restoration though

      wowzers, thats a lot of cars, wide range of types too.
      The English know how to make the best of things. Their so-called muddling through is simply skill at dealing with the inevitable.

      No service history or MOT either I imagine, possibly no engine either. There is a Lancia on there that looks very broken too!

      I am just a little tempted by the Alfa GTV....that will be worth serious dosh when renovated.

      That's definitely not a Lotus Cortina! Just a bog standard Ford, with a green stripe down the side.

      Fair enough, no nothing about them except the colour scheme, I’m an Alfa man !

      This is one of the most ridiculous vehicles I've ever seen.

      People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.

      It's an airflow 2 door, most likely a 1500 deluxe, fitted with a GT dash, remote and at least manifolds if not full engine. It looks rotten. I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, but they're still in high demand ( for a few months yet) and well restored or very good solid 2 door cars are £10k plus Gt's 20-30+ and Lotus more.

      The body shell is everything, they're expensive/time consuming to restore, as are all monocoque biscuit tin cars. . . .from minis upward. . . Little wonder you can buy a new mk1 mini shell now. . . Escorts are close, Cortinas will be soon and then the Arse will fall out of the shed market and all the race cars out there will be totally new cars as opposed to just mostly new.

      There are a few interesting things there. . . . . Hangs up anorak and retires to fireside
      Where have all the good times gone
