Estimate: £2,000-3,000

Sold: £2,588

The Cortina MK1 was introduced in September 1962 in a standard & deluxe form. Originally to be called "The Archbishop", Ford decided to stick to the tried and tested formula of the very popular Anglia 105E with an overhead valve engine, four speed gearbox, MacPherson strut front suspension and recirculating ball steering. Available in 2 or 4 door saloons the Consul Cortina was to be one of Ford's most successful models. (Ford were later to drop the 'Consul' nametag.) Up to January 1963 all models were fitted with an 1198cc 3 bearing crankshaft engine similar to the one in aforementioned Anglia 105E. Then for a cost of £84 you could have had an optional extra of a 1498cc 5 bearing crankshaft engine. The bodystyle for the Cortina had an angular look with tapering flutes along the sides and the immediately recognizable rear 'Y' light clusters. Described in the advertising campaign at the time, it was 'The Small Car With The Big Difference'. Described by the vendor as being in good to excellent condition in every respect, this attractively presented Daganham car has been well looked after with recent works including new shock absorbers front and rear, new front suspension and the origional blue internal and external colour scheme. We are also told that there is no rust to speak of and included in the sale are 20 old MoT test certificates as well as a current one to expire in August 2008. The main reason for the general good condition of this particular example is that it has had just one owner from new. An origional car with good provinance.
