**SOLD** 1974 Ford Cortina 2000E


1974 Ford Cortina 2000E

The vendor has supplied the following information.

The car was registered in May 1974 to a Mr Donald Pirie who was the managing director of his own Limited company. It was registered to the limited company and he used it as his car until he retired. It was then transferred into his own name and address.

He kept the car the whole time until he had to stop driving, whereupon it was sold to me, so realistically it is a one previous owner from new car.

I bought the car in 2012 and it was extensively restored by myself in 2013. I have been undertaking a programme of improvements ever since.

It has the original engine, with matching numbers. I had the head restored last year and converted to run on unleaded fuel with new valves and seals.

The interior carpet is original. The front seats have been retrimmed in a material that as closely resembles the original “Savannah” fabric as possible. I have the remaining roll of material to recover the back seat, but I think it looks OK so I have not bothered up to now. The wood trim has been re laminated and French polished by a professional wood trimmer who supplies Rolls Royce and Bentley.

It has a 5 speed gearbox installed, which can be converted back to the 4 speed if required.

The car runs and drives very well, it has been well protected underneath and is solid everywhere. CD photographs of the restoration are available.

My wife and I have enjoyed the car very much and it has been the talk of many local shows.

I hope it goes on to be improved by someone who will care for it as both I and the original owner did.
