Vive La Difference! (Ford Consul Cortina Mk1) - 1962
The revolutionary Ford Consul Cortina was launched in 1962, and was an immediate success. This film was made to show potential purchasers how versatile it was, and how Ford had gone to great lengths to research it ahead of producing this exciting new family car.
1965 Ford Cortina GT MK1
• Rarely Seen European MKI Ford Cortina GT!
• Incredible Restoration!
• 1.5L OHV Kent 4 Cylinder!
• Manual Transmission
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
Two at the Top (Ford Granada launch film) - 1971
When Ford chose to replace the enormous Mk IV Zodiac and Zephyr range, they
took a massive leap forwards with the new Granada and its cheaper brother,
the Consul. Smaller than its forebear, it was lighter, faster, and smarter. This is a shortened
version of the launch film for both cars, and shows how high Ford were
aiming with this car in terms of the cars it was competing with.
The Seven Days of Monza - 1972
This film follows a seven day endurance test on the famous Monza circuit
for two Ford Transits powered by the new 2.4 litre "York" diesel engine. A
team of top drivers - including Roger Clark and Bengt Sodestrom - drove 4
hour shifts in "an incredible non-stop maximum speed battle against time".
Ford took three world endurance records - all without a single mechanical
breakdown - over the 168 hours and 12,000 miles covered at an average speed
of 74 mph.
Lotus Cortina Mk1 Onboard - Saturday Race, VRG Turkey Bowl 2012
Green flag drops at about 3:40!
Feel free to check out some of my channel's other racing videos too!
This is my second race of the weekend in my 1965 Lotus Cortina Mk1. I
arrived to the grid late, so I had a lot of work to do to work through
traffic. It was a lot of fun, and I advanced from 15th to 1st!
Launch of the Ford Capri Mark I - 1969 - HD version
We are delighted to share with you a cleaned-up, colour-corrected, HD
version of the film we uploaded in January 2014. We hope you enjoy it even
more now its looking at its best.
This film was produced to launch the Ford Capri as "the car you always
promised yourself". Our sophisticated hero is distracted from his 3 very
different girlfriends by the eye-catching new Capri. He finds himself in a
dilemma as to not only which woman to choose but which of the three
exciting Capri models featured in the film he should go for.
Ford Cortina Mk I Testing - 1962
This 1962 film shows the brand new Ford Cortina Mark I - "a small car with
a big difference" - being tested at the British Army's Fighting Vehicles
Test Ground. The statistics reveal the car to have an acceleration of 0-60
MPH in a mighty 25 seconds. The eagle-eyed among you will spot that the car
is badged "Consul 225", a name that never made it on to a production model.

Ford Fiesta Bebop - 1990
The Ford Fiesta Bebop was a concept car produced by the Ghia design studio
in 1990. It turned the Fiesta into a sporty pick-up with an eye-catching
paint scheme, white wheels and jazzy sports seats. In this aspirational
promotional film, we see a young dynamic couple using their transformed
Fiesta to have fun cycling and windsurfing in the Italian Alps.
Ford GT70 - 1970
This film features the development of the Ford GT70 - the car that Ford saw
as the logical next step in their competition programme. The design was by
Len Bailey, who had been the chief designer of the GT40. Only five
prototypes were ever completed of the planned six, and the planned limited
production run of 500 never happened.
