Is it a kit car that wants to be a Lotus Elite when it grows up?
It's not denial, I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

No, it wasn't a kit car but a home-build and had no Lotus connection.

Is it based on Ford? Granada or Consul, something with Essex engine?

No, it wasn't based on a Ford and didn't have a Ford engine.
