Racecar Roller: 1965 Ford Cortina

This next car comes as a tip from Erik202 who writes; I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out a way to own this. It was posted about a year ago and sat there for quite some time before the ad was taken down. Now it’s back up and I’m devoting way too much time to thinking about it. I seem to recall the previous posting mentioning that it didn’t have a vin or that you are not able to register it for some reason so it is strictly a race car…Obviously I needed something else to make me want this thing even more and I came across a lotus twin cam engine with transmission listed locally. Find this 1965 Ford Cortina offered for $6,000 in Squamish, BC, Canada.
