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.

A Reputable and Lavish Ford Cortina Mk2 1600E with Just 64,346 Miles From New. £5,995
FOR SALE A reputable and lavish Ford Cortina Mk2 1600E with just 64,346 miles from new. EQUIPMENT Steel integral construction, safety glass all round, zero torque anti-burst locks, air extraction vents, safety styled door handles/window winders, twin-tone horns, sealed beam headlamps, front circular driving lamps, twin reversing lamps, spare wheel cover, wooden fascia and upper door cappings, fully reclining front bucket seats, bucket style rear seating with fold down armrest, padded dashtop, safety passenger vanity mirror, four pod central gauge cluster comprising, oil pressure, fuel gauge, engine temperature, ammeter. Seat belt stowage points, cigar lighter, branded aluminium scuff plates, 3-spoke sports steering wheel, extra sound insulation, electric clock. EXTERIOR This beautiful 1600E is finished in Ford Ermine White (code BA) and boasts a pure bright shine. There is evidence of remedial paintwork having been completed throughout the car in order to maintain the high standard of finish. There is however an isolated area to the bottom of each front wing where the paint has started to lift, visible upon very close inspection only. The paint is crazed along the seam joining the front wings to the scuttle panel. This example is incredibly sound structurally with no evidence of weld repairs to the underside and none being required. The exterior trim, bumpers and extra 1600E ornamentation is intact and in excellent order, aside from very minor pitting to the chrome work on the bumpers and slight dulling to the headlamps surrounds. All glass areas and lights are in excellent order, including the twin reversing lamps standard only on the 1600E model. Collectively a hugely commendable classic Ford exterior, with the added desirable 1600E kudos. INTERIOR The interior of this classic Cortina is truly awe-inspiring. The sculptured front and rear bucket seats are trimmed in black PVC (code B635) and remain in remarkable condition with no wear to the coverings. The seats have retained all integrity and shape, as have the matching door cards. The real walnut fascia and door cappings are in excellent order, aside from very negligible age related wear to the upper surface of the door cappings. All gauges housed in the stunning fascia are clear and fully operational, as are all other interior functions and controls. Replacement carpeting has been added and freshen up the overall interior feel, however the carpeting joins underneath the seats are not perfect, but do not detract at all from the impressive cabin offered with this example. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The 1600E is fitted with the high performance version of the 1600cc cross flow engine with a higher compression ratio so producing 93bhp at 5400rpm. This gives a top speed of 96mph and 0-60 in 11.8 seconds. A full engine rebuild has been carried out including conversion to use unleaded fuel. The 4-speed transmission has a light short shift action. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The 5 ½ inch rim styled wheels with painted rims and chromed spiders are in used condition and are shod in 165 SR13 tyres. The hydraulically operated and servo assisted brakes stop the car safely offering driver confidence. HISTORY FILE Photographic documentation of a body restoration and engine rebuild will offer the next owner of this executive Cortina assurance of a sound, usable example. The vehicle has had seven former keepers and comes with various invoices and old MOT records. The vehicle was sold by KGF Classic Cars in July 2013 to avid classic car collector Mr D Conway where it has formed part of an extensive collection. Mr Conway's enthusiasm for classic cars never falters, and his desire to sporadically refresh his fleet has given KGF Classic Cars the privileged task of finding a new keeper for this fantastic Ford Cortina. MOT July 2014, Tax exempt, HPI Clear, Approved Used Car Check Certificate.

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.
