This Ford Cortina MK1 1500 GT 2 Door has been the subject of a total restoration with a comprehensive history file of the work carried out including photos. The engine was also subject to a rebuild to 'fast road' specification. The end result is a truly superb vehicle that is not only attractive but is extremely rare these days. The numbers confirm that this car is an original GT and is not one of the many 'clones' that are around. On the road the GT drives extremely well with performance best described as 'crisp'. The interior is superb to match the flawless paintwork. The car sits on rims that were usually fitted to the Lotus Cortina but set the car off well. These cars are rare now particularly in this condition, it would be hard to find and restore a car to this level for the asking price (if you can find one), as such it does offer excellent value and would be an asset to any private collection.
