1979-1982 FORD Cortina ‘80


Overview

At first glance the Cortina ‘80 didn’t look much different to the MkIV, but it received a huge number of improvements that kept it on top until the arrival of the Sierra in 1982. A bigger glass area and lamp clusters, wraparound bumpers and an aeroflow radiator grille are immediate identifiers. Build quality and rust resistance improved over the MkIV, and that means survival rate is increased. The most prized models are the wood-trimmed Ghia and the run-out Crusader, which buyers clamoured for in 1982, in preference to buying a new Sierra.
