1980 Ford Cortina Mk5 2.8 Injection


1980 Ford Cortina Mk5. 2.8 Injection.

In 1985 the car was converted by Bob Philips, who fitted a Ford Capri 2.8 Injection engine with a Janspeed exhaust system and a Capri 5 speed gearbox which is registered on its V5 with the DVLA.

The conversion was recognised by Ford and featured in the 'Fast Ford Magazine' at the Fast Ford Fair, being awarded a 'Highly commended' by the judges.

A copy of the magazine is supplied with the car. The car continued to be featured in the 'Custom Ford' book from 1987. This book is also supplied with the car.

The car has been kept garaged for the last 27 years covering a very low mileage. 

Supplied with a recent MOT test.

Your chance to become the owner of a very rare motor car, and with Ford prices showing no signs of slowing up, could prove to be wise investment?
