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!!!

British Motor Corporation Story
BMC was the largest British car company of its day, with (in 1952) 39 percent of British output, producing a wide range of cars under brand names including Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey and Wolseley as well as commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors. The first chairman was Lord Nuffield (William Morris) but he was replaced in August 1952 by Austin's Leonard Lord who continued in that role until his 65th birthday in 1961 but handing over, in theory at least, the managing director responsibilities to his deputy George Harriman in 1956. BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the chairman. The use of Morris engine designs was dropped within 3 years and all new car designs were coded ADO from "Amalgamated Drawing Office". The Longbridge plant was up to date, having been thoroughly modernised in 1951, and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and often old fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's management systems however, especially cost control and marketing, were not as good as Nuffield's and as the market changed from a shortage of cars to competition this was to tell. The biggest-selling car, the Mini, was famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability and hence investment in new models, triggering the 1966 merger with Jaguar Cars to form British Motor Holdings (BMH), and three years later leading to the government sponsored merger of BMH with Leyland Motor Corporation.

Ford History - Crash Tests
In the early 70s Ford dedicated more effort devoted to the problem of safety testing and many more specific crash tests. They also took care of solving pollution problems, with studies on how to reduce gas emissions and on alternative fuels. This Galaxy 500, from the early 70s, the typical American limosine, underlines how Ford looked at the future without losing the traditional models including the elite ones. During the same period The US Ford factories began to produce compact cars like Pinto. In Europe, production increased and models were diversified, including those made in Britain and Germany. Cars like the Escort, also starring in the rallies, and then Capri, Cortina and Fiesta contributed to the spread of the brand. In 1979 came the acquisition of the Japanese Mazda, which joined the Ford group. ------------------------------------------------------- All'inizio degli anni settanta anche la casa statunitense si dedicò con maggiore impegno al problema della sicurezza con test sempre più specifici e molte prove di crash. Non di meno si occupò della risoluzione dei problemi dell'inquinamento, con studi sul modo di ridurre le emissioni di scarico e sui carburanti alternativi. É dei primi anni settanta questa galaxie 500, grande berlina di rappresentanza, tipica limousine americana, a sottolineare come in ford si guardasse al futuro senza mai perdere la tradizione di modelli anche d'elite. Nello stesso periodo anche negli stabilimenti ford degli stati uniti si iniziò a produrre vetture compatte come la pinto. In europa la produzione si incrementò, diversificando i modelli, tra quelli realizzati in Gran Bretagna e germania. Auto come la Escort prima, protagonista anche nei rallies, e poi la Capri, la Cortina e la Fiesta contribuirono alla diffusione del marchio. Nel 1979 giunse l'acquisizione della giapponese Mazda, che entrò così nel gruppo Ford.
