The Ford Cortina is a car built by Ford of Britain in various guises from
1962 to 1982, and was the United Kingdom's best-selling car of the 1970s.
The Cortina was produced in five generations (Mark I through to Mark V,
although officially the last one was called the Cortina 80) from 1962 until
MotoeXotica Classic Cars is thrilled to offer a rarely seen Ford from all
the way across the Pond! This 1965 Ford Cortina GT comes to us from a
prominent, private collection and has benefitted from an incredible, nut &
bolt restoration. This is one of the coolest European cars we've had in our
showroom in a long time and it's well worth a good look!
Finished in Monaco Red, the paint is in absolutely breathtaking condition.
We are hard pressed to find imperfections to the paint or even the body.
The body is extremely straight and solid. The chrome and bright work is
also in excellent condition. This Cortina shows very well and is sure to
turn heads, not only because it's so incredibly restored but also because
it's very rare that one sees a Cortina GT out and about!
The interior is very clean and simple. The black upholstery is in beautiful
condition and you will notice that there are late racing seats installed.
The carpet, door panels and headliner are all in comparable condition. The
color matched dashboard and dash pad are in wonderful condition, showing no
signs of fading or cracking. The dashboard houses a set of Auto Meter
Phantom gauges (Oil Pressure, Water Temperature, Fuel Level, Voltage) and
the original Ford Cortina speedometer and tachometer. These all look
awesome. There is also an aftermarket AM/FM/CD player as well.
Under the hood, you'll find that the engine bay is fresh and tidy. The
later model Mark II 1600, overhead valve, Kent 4-cylinder (casting #681F
6015DA) starts up easily and runs excellent! Upon the engine is what
appears to be an original two barrel carburetor and headers. The main
wiring harness has also been cleaned up by a Painless Performance kit.
Matched to the engine is a manual transmission, making this Cortina a blast
to drive! It has power front disc brakes and it sits upon a set of 13"
8-spoke, gunmetal Midland Wheels wrapped in a set of new 185/60R13 tires
that look great.
It's already very hard to find a Cortina GT; it's MUCH harder to find one
in condition such as this! The VIN is 3A77EG79301 and the mileage currently
shows 86,219. It is being sold on a clean and clear title. GET OUT AND

An Award Winning Mk1 Ford Cortina 1500 De Luxe with Awesome Performance. SOLD!
*SIMILAR QUALITY CARS ALWAYS REQUIRED* SOLD
An award winning Mk1 Ford Cortina 1500 De Luxe with awesome performance.
All steel unitary construction, safety glass all round, zero torque
anti-burst locks, air extraction vents, bright metal exterior
ornamentation, single-tone horn, sealed beam headlamps, painted fascia and
upper door cappings, front bucket seats, padded dashtop, aluminium scuff
plates, cigar lighter, 3-spoke sports steering wheel. Factory options;
The iconic Mk1 Ford Cortina is instantly recognisable and draws much
attention and affection from onlookers. Being no exception, the exterior
finish of this incredible example is simply breath taking. A fully
documented 2007 bare metal re-spray in the original colour of Ford Ermine
White (code BA) was carried out as part of a full restoration program and
was to include underside paint detailing. The paintwork is close to
flawless with imperfections traceable only upon the most fastidious
scrutiny, namely a hairline crack to the paint on the seam joining each
front wing to the windscreen scuttle, utterly insignificant. Huge expense
and countless hours of devotion are clearly evident with the resulting
finish scarcely bettered. The chrome bumpers, brightwork and rubber trim
sections are perfect and the original bonnet and rear badges display only
the faintest natural patina. A spotless detailed engine bay upholds the
condition of the exterior and features expensive re-plating and
refurbishment of all components. A stunning Mk1 worthy of much admiration
The original interior of this classic Cortina is wonderfully nostalgic!
The sculptured front bucket seats and rear bench are trimmed in vibrant Red
PVC (code B393) and remain in remarkable condition. The seats have
retained all integrity and shape with only very faint crazing to the top of
the driver’s seat worthy of mention, incredible considering nearly 50
years have passed by! The matching door cards are pristine as is the
washable headlining and matching twin sunvisors. All gauges and controls
housed in the stunning painted fascia are clear and fully operational, and
a period optional accessory Sharp Solid State radio remains in place. A
fantastic classic Cortina interior, true to Fords intentions.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The factory optional 1500cc engine was an upgrade from the standard 1200cc
unit. The original pre-crossflow engine in this example has benefited from
a mind blowing program of improvement, largely from renowned Burton Power
of Ilford, Essex. An Exhaustive
specification list that includes, to name but a few, many Lotus components,
twin 40” carburettors, Ashley manifold and stainless Exhaust system and Kent 244 camshaft. The
result of this no expense spared devotion is a driving experience that will
excite any enthusiast immensely. A four speed 2000E Bullet gearbox
completes the package and is light and precise. Fast, fun and fantastic in
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Wonderfully period Minilight wheels with polished outer rims are simply
perfect and are shod in nearly new Yokohama 185/60 R13 tyres. Tastefully
lowered using fully adjustable GAZ shocks give this Cortina the ultimate
imposing stance to go with the epic handling. To ensure the car stops as
well as it goes and upgrade braking system incorporates vented front discs
with Capri 2.8i callipers and 8in rear drums.
Registered new on 6th December 1966 as a humble mid-range 1500 De Luxe,
this example led an unassuming yet cherished existence throughout its first
four decades. It wasn’t until 2006 when despite being a relatively sound
useable example, Mr Stephen Greenwood thankfully saved the car from a
ludicrous plan to scrap it! Therein began an incredible quest to build the
ultimate Mk1 Cortina with a twist. A colossal history box file contains
literally hundreds of receipts and invoices evidencing thousands of pounds
worth of parts from renowned specialist suppliers, as well as many
restoration photographs and previous MOT certificates. The no expense
spared mentality was clearly infectious and the overall build cost grew to
an eye watering amount! In 2011 Mr Barry Payne a friend of Mr Greenwood
purchased the Cortina knowing what a fantastic opportunity it represented.
Mr Payne a very well known character on the classic Ford scene has owned
countless classic blue oval marques and the Cortina sat nicely alongside
his existing collection. His fastidious nature and cherished ownership
means the car remains presented in impeccable order, a real credit to them
A truly heart wrenching decision for Mr Payne to part with this car is born
from the acquisition of a new project and KGF Classic Cars are delighted to
offer this brilliant Mk1 Cortina to its next very lucky owner.

Rare Model A Ford US Mail Car.
Saw this cool looking US mail car from the 1930's today in a private
collection. It was used to deliver mail during the harsh Nabraska winters.
The owner said there was two of these built back in the day. It looks like
a Model A coupe body sitting on a 1 Ton model AA frame and running gear. It
would be fun to take for a spin.
