Known History

Only 2'749 examples of the two-door Ford Cortina 1600 E were built and this example was first registered on the 1st of April 1970 and handed over to its first owner on 15th April of the same year. He kept the Cortina for an astonishing 41 years before selling it to its current owner in 2011. The new owner had the coachwork restored in 2012/13. At the same time the gearbox and clutch were overhauled and a new stainless steel exhaust system and new rear Koni dampers fitted. The floor was found in excellent original condition and has carefully been preserved. The interior received a partial restoration including new carpets. In 2015 the cylinder head was overhauled and new brake calipers were installed. The Cortina will be sold with period correct Minilite rims installed but with the original Rostyle steel rims accompanying the car. The original document folder, some spare parts as well as maintenance records since 2011 also form part of this lot. A very rare and cherished Ford Cortina which was driven a mere 400 km since its last service in March 2019. The most recent Swiss Veteran MOT dates from March 2015.
