A pleasant little ditty – but this video has more than just Mr. Sweeney and boys – it is actually a wonderful little documentary!

Great Start to the Cortina of Your Dreams

The following Cortina roller is available in the United Kingdom and would make for a great start to a track car project, a Lotus clone or whatever the imagination can conceive. This Aeroflow example appears rough however the seller states that with the exception of the sills the shell is “in solid original condition”.

Have something to trade? Transition year Lotus in Italy

The owner of this 1965 Ford Lotus-Cortina is only interested in a trade; apparently to keep his collection interesting. Since 1965 was a transition year for the Lotus-modified Cortinas it may be worth it to find something Italian to trade if you don’t already have something worth the $50 – $60 thousand these things are going for these days (January 2017). This is starting to sound like quite an adventure. This particular Cortina was made for export to Italy so it is left-hand drive as well.

Sweet ’69 GT In Little Scotland

This clean little GT is currently located in Corby, Northamptonshire, England which is known as “Little Scotland” due to the number of Scottish folks that worked in the steel mills there in the 1930s.  The seller does not state, however, where the Cortina was imported from – but the steering wheel position is in the right place for us in the States!

Nevertheless this is a very pretty example with its Silver Fox metallic paint and black PVC interior.  The FORD block letters across the bonnet first made their appearance this year.

Restored Mark 1 That Originally Came In A Box

That’s right – this beautifully restored Cortina was originally a CKD (complete knock-down) kit sent from Ford UK to Australia and assembled at the Ford plant in New South Wales. Ford of Australia imported CKD kits for model years ’63 & ’64 and then switched to SKD (semi-knocked-down) kits for subsequent model years incrementally adding locally-produced parts and eventually pressing their own bodies.

Not Too Far From Its Birthplace But Willing To Travel

This Mark 2 Cortina-Lotus looks very racy in “Red II 65” with its “Amber Gold” stripe. A welcome departure from the typical white and green livery. In fact, any color stripe could be added by the dealer as the Cortina Twincam was built alongside the GT at Dagenham.

Show Winner But Those Wheels Must Go

Up for sale in the village of Pennington, located in Hampshire, England, is this multiple-show-winning Crayford conversion that is a sight to behold. The vehicle comes with at least 16 car show plaques and a set of gruesome wheels. Really those things must go – a nice set of GT-spec wheels would be so much better or even Rostyles. On the high side new Minilite or Dunlop clones would look fantastic but these Cragar-looking things really break the look.

Clean, Low Mileage 1500 Automatic in Bonnyrigg

This Beige Deluxe is said to have accumulated only 56,000 miles since new although the seller indicates that the Cortina received new front wings at some point. Since the rear wheel arches and sills are rust-free and original one wonders if it was in a crash. Pondering the history further – this 4-door, automatic-equipped Ford could have been the property of the proverbial “little old lady” – the wings being subject to frequent clashes with shopping carts. No formal history is given however the repair work looks straight and clean.

Restored 1600E in Northamptonshire

As the 1600E model of the Ford Cortina was the first of the marque to be considered a classic, it is really no surprise that restored examples are appearing more often on the market. This wonderfully restored example looks super clean in white with the thin pinstripe and bright Rubery Owen-style (Rostyle) wheels.
