1965 Ford Cortina GT MK1
http://motoexotica.com/inventory/6050/1965_Ford_Cortina_GT.htm • 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 1982. 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 DRIVE!!!

Abandoned cars in forgotten junkyard
These pictures were taken in May of 2010 in the Michigan woods. The junkyard is permanently closed and has posted no trespassing signs all over the place. I spoke to the person who owns the property and was given special permission to explore. This site covers 120 acres and is packed with cars from the 1930's on up. I only had an hour to look and it must be done on foot. Enjoy the pics, places like this just don't exist anymore. Truely a rare find. Thanks to my buddy Chris for the tip on this hot spot.
