1979 Ford Cortina 2.0 GL


Well this really took me back, one of the first cars I ever drove!

Ford CortIna 2.0 GL MK4. Surely everybody approaching 50 years of age has had a Cortina, if not, you don't know what your missing out on!

This example we have here is presented in superb condition with the correct 'Rostyle wheels' and Four spoke steering wheel.

Fitted with the 'Type 9' five speed gearbox which is a sensible accepted upgrade and retaining the original four speed gearknob.

Supplied with a Ford Cortina owners guide and a wallet full of invoices. The mileometer is reading 46,000 ?? The records held by the DVLA unfortunately only list from 2006.

I can confirm she drove lovely on my 'memory lane' trip around the village to take these images.
