A Reputable and Lavish Ford Cortina Mk2 1600E with Just 64,024 Miles From New - SOLD!
SOLD - MORE URGENTLY REQUIRED
A reputable and lavish Ford Cortina Mk2 1600E with just 64,024 miles from
Steel integral construction, safety glass all round, zero torque anti-burst
locks, air extraction vents, safety styled door handles/window winders,
twin-tone horns, sealed beam headlamps, front circular driving lamps, twin
reversing lamps, spare wheel cover, wooden fascia and upper door cappings,
fully reclining front bucket seats, bucket style rear seating with fold
down armrest, padded dashtop, safety passenger vanity mirror, four pod
central gauge cluster comprising, oil pressure, fuel gauge, engine
temperature, ammeter. Seat belt stowage points, cigar lighter, branded
aluminium scuff plates, 3-spoke sports steering wheel, extra sound
insulation, electric clock.
This beautiful 1600E is finished in Ford Ermine White (code BA) and boasts
a uniform bright shine. The exterior trim, bumpers and extra 1600E
ornamentation is intact and in excellent order, aside from very minor
pitting to the chrome work on the bumpers and slight dulling to the
headlamps surrounds. There are photographs showing a full and comprehensive
restoration a number of years ago so this example is incredibly sound
structurally. Being an older restoration there are isolated areas, such as
the bottom of each front wing, which has slight paint lift and minor
crazing along some seams. All glass areas and lights are in excellent
order, including the twin reversing lamps standard only on the 1600E model.
Collectively a hugely commendable classic Ford exterior, with the added
desirable 1600E kudos.
The interior of this classic Cortina is truly awe-inspiring. The
sculptured and sumptuous front and rear bucket seats are trimmed in black
PVC (code B635) and remain in remarkable condition with no wear to the
coverings. The seats have retained all integrity and shape, as have the
matching door cards. The real walnut fascia and door cappings are in
excellent order, aside from very negligible age related wear to the upper
surface of the door cappings. All gauges housed in the stunning fascia are
clear and fully operational, as are all other interior functions and
controls. Replacement carpeting has been added which freshen up the
overall interior feel, however the carpeting joins underneath the seats are
not perfect, but are out of sight and do not detract at all from the
impressive cabin offered with this example.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 1600E is fitted with the high performance version of the 1600cc cross
flow engine with a higher compression ratio so producing 93bhp at 5400rpm.
This gives a top speed of 96mph and 0-60 in 11.8 seconds. A full engine
rebuild has been carried out including conversion to use unleaded fuel.
The 4-speed transmission has a light short shift action.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The 5 ½ inch rim styled wheels with painted rims and chromed spiders are
in used condition and are shod in 165 SR13 tyres. The hydraulically
operated and servo assisted brakes stop the car safely offering driver
Photographic documentation of a body restoration and engine rebuild will
offer the next owner of this executive Cortina assurance of a sound, usable
example. The vehicle has had six former keepers and comes with various
invoices and old MOT records.

Auction of 1965 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk 1 ENJ 712C
Barons auction of Lot 123, Ford/Lotus Cortina Mk1 ENJ 712C, on Tuesday 27
October 2009 which can be glimpsed at the left of the picture.
The guide price was £25K to £30K.
The sale catalogue description : "...Offered here is a 1965 example of the
Lotus Cortina, which has been the subject of a nut and bolt rebuild, which
was started in 1998 and only completed in 2008. The vendor acquired the
car, in a dismantled state, in 1998 and began to restore it to original
specification. It has covered a mere 20 miles since the completion of the
restoration and now sports leaf springs, rather than A Bracket rear
suspension and a replica SE steering wheel.
Finished in the definitive white with green Lotus flashes, the car has been
fitted with many new panels, which included inner and outer wings, front
panel, rear panels, one rear quarter panel, new chassis cross member, front
jacking members and a full strip down of the body shell before dipping,
priming, painting and treating with Waxoyle. This work was carried out by a
professional body shop in 1999 and the car was then stored until 2008.
In 2008 the vendor commenced the final phase of his plan and equipped the
car with a fully rebuilt engine, with a QED, unleaded, cylinder head, new
pistons, reground crank, new water pump, timing chains and all new
bearings. The Webber's were reconditioned by Northampton Motorsport and a
new fuel tank was supplied and fitted as was a new, complete, Borg and Beck
clutch assembly. With a freshly restored radiator, from SERCK services, all
new hoses and a NOS Exhaust system,
the engine was fired up and set up.
Additional works have included new brake pipes, calipers and discs, new
rear wheel cylinders, new ball joints, bushes and shocks, wiring checked
and renewed where required, new headlining, front seat covers, door cards
and carpets, new glass rubbers and new weather seals...".
The Australian telephone bidder dropped out at £29K.
