1967 Mk2 Ford Cortina 2 Door Estate 'A bespoke one off' For Sale
1967 Series 1 Mk2 Ford Cortina 2 door Estate
Ford never made a two door Cortina estate and this is the UK's only known example in existence.
From a Simon Coulson sketch in a national publication, to previous owner Mark Madden pursuing the concept with the assistance from well established fabricating guru Manny Galea, this truly bespoke and unique Ford Cortina was created. Fabrication imagery is available to view on https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/rallysupport/cortina-conversion-t10169.html

Classic Ford Magazine said of the Cortina
"It really is astonishing how factory looking this Cortina is. A beautifully finished conversion that ticks all the 60's period boxes and we'd go as far as to say that Ford really should've built a two-door variant of the Mk2, with this example's stunningly clean lines providing all the proof you could ever need"
I trust it will come as no surprise to most that given what the Cortina has been subject to in terms of fabrication, the varying components within it and what it now represents, the 'financial costs incurred' since it's inception is WAY in excess of the asking price.
Naturally given the above, all I'd ask is that only genuine interested parties, without part exchanges and with funds enquire.
