Footnotes

  • Ford first applied the 'Cortina' name to its medium-sized family saloon in 1962, sticking with the tried and tested mechanical formula of front engine/rear-wheel drive, McPherson Strut independent front suspension, and a live rear axle from the MkI to the MkV. The Cortina's conventional specification did it no harm whatsoever, the model dominating its market sector for 20 years.

    In September 1970 the Cortina MkIII range was introduced, featuring wishbone front suspension and an American-inspired 'Coke bottle' body, while the top-flight 1600 GT and 2000 models came with new overhead-cam Pinto engines. Built as a two- and four-door saloon and an estate, the MkIII boasted a wide choice of engines and trim levels, enabling Ford to claim that no fewer than 35 basic versions were available. Over 1.1 million MkIII Cortinas had been built by the time production ceased in 1976.

    The late owner's property from new, this Cortina 1600 XL was a 'Category D' write-off in 1998 and was repaired at that time. The car has been in storage for some years and has just been re-commissioned and MoT'd. Sold strictly as viewed, it comes with an MoT certificate valid until January 2018.
