Ford Cortinas - and Getting Them to the States

Tag: Mk 1 (page 1 of 2)

New Style “Mod” in Michigan

No container needed for this one – Ford already imported it for you in 1964! The seller reports that it has spent most of it’s life in Arizona and an additional 15 years in dry storage. Apparently when the seller acquired this Cortina it came with a full 1965 1500 GT drivetrain most of which has been swapped into this Deluxe.

The clean looking wheels and tires may give you a hint at what lies underneath.

Unbelievably Original Pre-Aeroflow Super

Oh my goodness is this a beautiful example! The seller claims that this is an “EXTREMELY ORIGINAL EXAMPLE IN WONDERFUL CONDITION” and we totally understand why he is yelling!

Still known as a Consul Cortina in 1964 when it left the Dagenham plant, as evidenced by the stylish nameplate on the bonnet, the person who ordered this vehicle also ticked the “Super” trim specification on the form. This trim included the chrome accents on the body side feature lines which really set this spec apart from lesser Cortinas.

One of the Rarest Cortinas on the Planet

This little Woody-optioned Cortina Estate is said to be one of only about five known to exist in Aeroflow spec. It is quite remarkable that the faux wood trim has remained in such good condition, however at the time these photographs were posted on Car-from-UK.com the interior had seen better days.

It’s already here! Mark 1 recently imported to the US

Gotta love this left-hand driver – no price is given but it looks like a great little specimen. And the process of importing it has already been done for you! This is certainly one to consider carefully.

This 1965 Deluxe 1500 model shure shows nicely in photos; the panels looking smooth and the brightwork clean and straight. The outside rear-view mirrors may have a case of the floppies so the new owner may want to address that straight away.

Fancy an Estate? A Nice One in the UK

Aside from the wagon craze here in the States, wagons, or more properly Estates, have a plethora of practical purposes which can only enhance the ownership experience for a certain segment of the population. Travelers, campers/hikers/mountain bikers, surfers and the like find great utility in this body style – and of course the gettin’ groceries and a random jaunt to the train station.  This 1965 Deluxe with the 1.5 litre pre-Crossflow  engine looks to be ready for it’s next owner.

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.

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.

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.
