Just arrived from the USA. Very sound body. More details on request.
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.

HISTORY FILE Supplied new by Ford Main Dealers, Norman Reeves Motors Ltd and first registered on the 5th January 1983. The very last Cortina made was a Silver Crusader 1.6 Saloon on the 22nd July 1982 which remains in the Ford Heritage Centre in Dagenham. Both Fords own heritage car and this example share the same ‘CM’ chassis prefix proving the July 82 factory build and therefore being one of the last cars to roll off the factory line! Fords own car was actually registered on the 14th December 1982 and before this car despite being the last one made. The first owner, a Mrs Janet Reeves, reputedly a family member of the Dealership group, who disliked the jellymould appearance of the new Ford Sierra, opted for the Cortina. It has since remained enthusiast owned with just four former keepers and membership to the Ford Cortina Owners Club. The previous owner Mr Manning has collated a mass of Mk5 Cortina adverts in the quest to acquire one of the best and last available and this car is a credit to his efforts. A collection of old MOT certificates, all the vehicle handbooks including the service book and even a new car sales brochure makes this car a prized Cortina for the collector.
