A Superb Original Ford Cortina Mk5 1600L with an Incredible 23,281 Miles from New - SOLD!
**SIMILAR CLASSIC CARS ALWAYS REQUIRED** A superb original Ford Cortina Mk5 1600L with an incredible 23,281 miles from new. EQUIPMENT All steel welded integral construction, safety glass all round, laminated windscreen, louvered radiator grill, bright drip-rail, windshield and rear window inserts, anti-burst locks, bright bumpers, bodyside tape stripe, perforated headlining, lockable glovebox, 'hangdown' centre console, cigar lighter, Ford push button radio, boot mat, instrument illumination control, electric screen wash. Dealer fitted options; Ford mud flaps. EXTERIOR This beautiful Mk5 1600L, the final incarnation of Ford's iconic Cortina is finished in original Corsican Blue (code L0). The factory paint has a glorious deep uniform shine owing to the remarkably low miles covered and the truly cosseted ownership. All factory panels are straight with even gaps and free from corrosion, and the underside is structurally perfect having been protected from new, confirmed by the original Bodyshield window sticker. Only very minor paint lift to the seams either side of the front lower valance can been seen upon very close scrutiny and tiny hairline scratches to the paintwork in some areas have remained untreated in order to retain the honest unrestored nature of this fantastic example. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are pristine and the original supplying dealer number plates, tax disc holder and rear screen sticker remain. Now representing a very rare sight, this truly special Ford Cortina has remained exactly as Ford intended and is certain to delight the avid blue oval enthusiast! INTERIOR A factory fresh 1980's Ford interior, even down to the factory build stickers still attached to the seat bases! The term 'time warp' can often be used loosely, but upon climbing into this spacious Cortina cabin it's certainly justified. The perfect Savannah Blue (code F1) fabric seats are completely free from wear or damage commensurate of a car with such few miles covered. The spotless colour keyed carpets, matching door cards and perforated headlining firmly uphold the showroom fresh appeal. All switchgear and functions operate exactly as intended and are housed in a perfect dashboard with no cracks or sun related distortion whatsoever. A wonderfully original classic Ford interior, worthy of the guaranteed praise and accolade it receives. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION Ford's time tested and trustworthy 1600 OHC Standard unit needs little introduction. With a power output of 73bhp, a top speed of 94mph and a 0-60 time of 12.7 seconds allow the car to match the pace of modern traffic with ease. The engine is whisper quiet and wonderfully smooth having benefited from a complete program of recommissioning in May 2014 including a complete service and timing belt with a supporting invoice for peace of mind. The four speed all synchromesh manual gearbox feels light with a positive clutch action and relaxed motoring is effortless. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Five styled steel wheels with 13 x 4.5in rims are factory original and remain shod with the original Dunlop SP4 165/SR13 tyres. The tyres have excellent tread remaining and the rubber is free from significant deterioration, but whilst the factory fitted tyres retain absolute originality it would be prudent due to age to fit new items if the vehicle is to be put into regular use. The wheel rims are free from damage and minor paint deterioration remains untreated in order to preserve the unrestored acclaim. Recently overhauled hydraulic dual line brakes with servo assistance offer ample stopping power and complete assurance. HISTORY FILE Supplied new by Ford Main Dealer A.E. Chatfield Ltd of Stoke on Trent and first registered on 23rd April 1980, this stunning Ford Cortina has had just two former keepers from new. The first and second registered keepers being husband and wife Mr and Mrs Windsor. The vehicle was registered new in Mr Windsor's name until being transferred to Mrs Windsor upon his passing in February 1991. Mrs Windsor had cherished the car remarkably until 2014 when she herself passed away. The previous keeper Mr David Eastwood an avid Cortina fan and Area Representative for the Ford Cortina Owners Club heard about the car and took ownership in order to ensure its safe future. This low mileage delight sat proudly aside his Mk5 2.3 Ghia and Mk3 Saloon, and Mr Eastwood's enthusiasm for the Cortina can be seen on the following link; http://www.fordday.co.uk/a-word-from-dave/ A large collection of MOT certificates in the history file enable the reader to fully track the 23,281 miles covered and a collection of previous maintenance invoices are present. All original handbooks, operating guides and the Ford service booklet remain with the car. There is even a photograph dated April 1983 of the car sat with a brand new Austin Mini Metro! MOT April 2015, HPI Clear, Approved Used Car Check Certificate.

Cortina GXL restoration PT 12
Pt 12 of the restoration of a Ford Cortina 1971 GXL (early model) . Discovered in a field in Essex. Abandoned for 24 years. Left in the open, exposed at the mercy of the elements. Left for dead. Dismissed by critics as too far gone. Only a mad man would attempt it. Beyond the pale. Scary. Rusty. Riddled. Overtaken by mice and hazelnuts. Chassis holding on for dear life. The last dying moments. The reaper only inches away. The sickels mad swipe, she could have been lost forever. .... and then....came the rescue. This is the story, the full story of a mission impossible. A story of resolve. A story of creativity, one mans vision against the odds to hatch a plan to rescue one of the early survivors. A true gem. A real rarity. She will be re-built. This is total commitment. Maxium power. This is attricion. This is full throttle. This is round the clock. Non-Stop rebuild. FORD CORTINA 1971 GXL Please see previos pt 1-12 for detailed information on this incredible project.
