Mystery bellhouse

As I shall soon be moving house I'm in the middle of decluttering/deciding what to keep and came across an odd bellhousing. Most of my stuff is Lotus Cortina related but this particular housing is not Mk 1 LC and I can't remember getting it.

It's alloy and appears to have been 'Group 4' modified and the starter housing and gear change hole are on opposite sides to the L/C bellhouse. The depth from inner face to outer face is the same at 6 and 1/2 inches and the hole pattern for the gearbox is the same as for the 3 rail Ford box. However, it is quite different at the engine face so unlikely to be from a Kent engine model.

Can anyone identify it? Escort/Pinto? Capri/Pinto? Rocket box/Pinto?

The Pinto/crossflow bolt configuration is the same on both blocks but I don't think it's the same on the V ford engines ? One thing it is a cable clutch operated housing so it could be for a Cortina Savage ? I know that the old 3 rail Tina box wouldn't put up with that amount of torque but was one made ? Probably Joe might know ? The trouble is Pete that most people that used this stuff in period are getting on a bit or not here at all !! and I being almost mid 70 forget what most of this old stuff is in my own workshop as well so you're not alone

Peter, the Crossflow and Pinto engine block bell housing bolt configurations are the same.
