Ford Cortina 1962

General description : Minor restoration by Lotus Cortina specialist John McCoy of Omni Tech Engineering a few years ago after a period of storage. Recent component rebuilding and fettling by Motoring Investments for use as the owner's occasional daily driver and tour car. Only being sold to make room for other bucket-list cars. This is a never rusted or crashed example of a Mk 1. Unlike the Lotus version or even the GT examples most all of these were used up by very hard use then slowly allowed to rot away behind barns or on back alleys behind businesses. It is doubtful there is a more authentic, dialed-in, stock and correct example on this planet and one could not duplicate it for even twice the price. This is a two family car and communication with past owners and wear on the original seat covers and floor mats suggest the 32981 miles are actual and genuine! There is far more information of a detailed nature on our website (plus many more photos). Please visit us there: http://WWW.MOTORINGINVESTMENTS.COM

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
