1965 Ford Cortina GT MK1
• 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
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

the day, in a field which included Pistol Pete, Steve Athens, Billy 66,
Deadli, Easy 8's, Ian Hicks, Michael Braggs and plenty of Fords, Holdens,

excitment from start to finish. So sit back now and enjoy the highlights
over three parts.

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! - Dirt Every Day Episode 2
On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of
the coolest 4x4's on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high
performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it's owner a
living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound. The owner
is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing
for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.
Dirt Every Day appears every other Thursday on the Motor Trend channel.

Turbo BARRA Ford Cortina sleeper
A relatively simple yet highly effective engine conversion is updating the
factory crossflow Ford six powered Cortina to the newer DOHC Barra engine
as found factory fitted in the XR6 turbo. Antony's Mark V / TF example is very neat
and shows a real stock presence. While internally stock, the turbocharged six cylinder has some choice bolt ons
that have enabled the street car sleeper to dip into the nine second
bracket. Tuned by: Dyno-Mite Performance.

A big bunch of RC airplane crashes and a lot of slow motion replays
This is about 5 years worth of RC airplane crashes that I have shot, mostly
at SCCMAS, near Morgan Hill, California.
I threw this together to play on a projector during our Christmas banquet
so there are a lot of repeats. The cub crash was a "big deal" at our club
so it shows up a lot.
There are a lot of repeated scenes in this video please don't be sad,
repeats were desirable when I threw this together for the Christmas
banquet, if somebody missed a crash they could see it again in a few
As for the slow motion please don't be sad that there are a lot of slow
motion replays, I like slow motion & the guys in my club like the slow
motion so they can analyze every aspect of the crash.
If you like this video, that's great, & I'm happy.
If you don't like this video please go away now, without telling me that
you don't like this video for whatever reason. The guys at the Christmas
banquet loved it.
