  • Vehicle Details

    My 1978 Ford Cortina MK4 2.0 GL Saloon in Bermuda Blue , which i purchased around August 2014. It had been off the road since 1986. when i bought the car, it didnt start, the petrol tank leaked, there were no brakes or clutch.

    2.0 Petrol Overhead Camshaft Engine

    Manual Gearbox

    I think the mileage recorded – 39900 is original however i am unable to prove this. I have done nearly 1000 miles in this car since rebuilding it.

    I rebuilt the suspension, ball-joints, all new brake hoses , wheel cylinders and shoes, battery, Petrol tank Brake pipes and got it running, new clutch and New front Tie bar bushes(poly)  and then MOT’d for the first time in 28 years.

    Its been fully serviced, Starter motor rebuilt, timing belt and engine block and cylinder head core plugs.

    Over the next few years i have renewed the Twin Choke Weber carburettor, and fitted Poly bushes to the rear suspension

    The Brake calipers have been rebuilt.

    it has had a complete set of carpets and underfelt.

    I have kept this car as original as it can be even has the original number plates and Westminster Parking permit.

    I’m not getting the use out of this car and would prefer it to go to a good home and i am testing the water . I may be interested in some Part exchange on another British car or Van.
