Ford Cortina, 2000GT, 2 Door with tombstone seats. WOW!!!!!
Virtually one owner from new with 40,000 miles and verifying history.
Original sales invoice.
This car was purchased from new by a hotel owner in the north of Scotland. He was known for never buying new cars.
On a trip to see his brother in Wales in 1973 he ended up buying this car and returning it to Scotland.
Shortly after returning with it he decided to purchase a vinyl roof kit from Exchange and Mart and stuck it on.
The story goes is that the roof was no better than tissue paper and it finished half way down the rear pillars.
Over a period of time it became unstuck at the front and he carried on driving it until it became an air balloon on top of the car.
Eventually he ripped it off removing some lacquer and put it in his garage and it was left there for some years. Hence the low mileage.
My friend Charles and classic car collector pestered the guy for years to sell it to him. Eventually he wore him down and he became a part of his collection in 2009.
Charles secured 2 new original Ford wings in Cyprus and a new sill.
He fitted these and painted parts of the car.
As all these old cars they could be improved.
The good thing with this car is that it would take very little. There are a few very minor paint issues but absolutely no rust. The engine and gearbox run like new but the engine would benefit from being detailed.
All switches and dials work as they should.
The engine bay paint is superb.
The interior which is so so important is mint.
The radio needs changing to a period Ford one which we have sourced and can be available with the car.
The wheels would look better refurbished.
I am painting a black picture. There probably isn’t a more genuine car in the country and it is the one to have if you like Mk3’s.
