1981 Cortina 2.3GL For Sale

Welcome to the sale of my fast Ford, the car is in Dorset and I'm in London. This is a used all of its life car, and still drives perfect to top speed, I've kind of had my enjoyment out of the car, which is barely driven these days – the original coachwork / chestnut brown isn't shiny as seen in the photos, and a gold colour bonnet is present. This is to all intents and purposes a quite powerful slightly lowered street car that's fun to drive and still gets attention at shows.

Partly because I'm colour blind it's ended up so many colours, moreover, there's a fair bit of replacement bodywork, and I've more panels for further improvement. MOT to June '20 / then the 'last' MOT. Mechanically it's matching numbers, and converted to unleaded – plus loads of useful tweaks that have carried out over the twelve years in my ownership.

This is a ready to drive car, no overheating, no leaks, no weird noises, heater works, wipers work, all interior present & correct, good battery, 205 tyres and exhaust system, etc. However, it's also an ongoing project and over the next couple of years will certainly require more bodywork doing, and yes, there's rust!

More to point, not a lot of 2.3's to choose from – ever, and it's a manual 4 speed box. Also, gets away with the ULEZ charging in the extended London zone in 2021.
