Ford Cortina Mk3 Rare Early Model For Sale
Description Ford Cortina Mk3 Rare Early Model
For sale - Ford Cortina mk3 very early model, Rare!!!
This car was built in Dagenham in Oct 1970, where it was subsequently exported to Malta where it was first registered in Jan 1971, it was imported back into the uk a few months ago, which is when i came on it,
due to some storage issues, and also a number of other projects i have on, i have reluctantly decided to part with it, and would hope this car goes to someone who would appreciate it, and restore it to its former glory.
Firstly - this car comes without an engine, gearbox and prop, although should not be too hard to pick one up.
The underbody on this car is SOLID!, i could only spot small areas that need attention, these are the on the bulkhead behind the engine, and the lower part of the front valance, a wire brush and grinder would make easy work of it, there are a few spots just starting to come through on the chassis underneath, when i say spots i mean spots, rust is beginning to form in the footwells, but a wire brush will sort easily.
The rest of the body does require some welding, these are the rear scuttle panel, the front scuttle panel, one small hole on passenger wing, and could ideally do with a front drivers wing, although i have had a panel beater look at it, and he seems to think its saveable, there is also work required to the lower drivers side quarter panel, and along the roof gutter, the doors need some repairs also, although the passenger door seems fine.
Interior is in fair condition, the front seats need recovering, and a new heater console plate would finish it off nicely, the carpets are excellent, as is the back seat, headlining is in good condition, no rips or tears,
This is a project, by all means, but by far not the worst, i was delighted to get a car in such good condition underneath, without any need for welding, as the upperbody stuff should be fairly quick to fix, and not too expensive,
this car is 44 years old, so don't expect it to be in showroom condition,
if further information is required i would be happy to assist, please call me on 075 267 14199 or message me on this,
Please no timewasters, would like to see this car go to a good home,
I have tried to describe this as best i can, but viewing would be a good idea, car is located near Dartford, Kent.
