Ford Cortina Mk3
A tribute to one of my favourite cars, the Ford Cortina Mark 3 of the
1970s. Between 1978 and 1981 I owned two of these, one good, one not so
good! The cars were made between 1970 and 1976, and underwent a facelift in
1973, gaining the rectangular headlights on top end models and a plastic
grille on all. Inside, the dashboard was altered from a sloping design to
one that faced the driver, which continued almost unchanged into the
plainer looking, straight-edged Cortina Mk4 which replaced this car. The
Cortina Mk3's profile was significantly raised in recent times when one was
featured in the 2006 BBC TV series, 'Life On Mars'.
Mike Sweeney presents 'Cortina Special' where he takes a look into the
history of the Ford Cortina and speaks to many enthusiasts!
With guests Graham Robson, Stephen J Vokins, Harry Calton, Tom Malcom,
Maurice Bennett, Andy Middlehurst, Dave Eastwood, Andy Childs, Darren Seed,
Carol Seed, Stuart Hughes.
