1963 DE TOMASO CORTINA 1600 GT PRE PRODUCTION "AIRFLOW " MODEL A GENUINE 63 POSITIVE EARTH CAR ( NOT FACE LIFTED ) BUILT BY ALESANDRO DE TOMASO, WHO'S COMPANY IS BETTER KNOWN FOR THE MANGUSTA AND PANTERA. THESE CARS COST TWICE THE AMOUNT OF A NORMAL GT !!! 1 OWNER FOR 47 YEARS VERY LOW MILEAGE RUST FREE UN-WELDED SHELL MANY UNUSUAL DE TOMASO FEATURES INC ORIGINAL 1500 GT PRE CROSSFLOW ENGINE BORED TO 1600, BIG VALVE PORTED/POLISHED HEAD, LOTUS BOTTOM END/PISTONS, ALL LIGHTENED/BALANCED RUNNING ON TWIN WEBBER DCOE 40 CARBS ON ROD LINKAGE, ALLOY ROCKER COVER, COVERED LESS THAN 1000 MILES! "BULLET" CLOSE RATIO GEARBOX ( JUST REBUILT @ £2.5K ) UNIQUE IGNITION CUT OUT SYSTEM, DT DISHED STEERING WHEEL, DT RECLINING SEATS, CAMPAGNOLO MAGNESIUM 6 X 13'S SHOD WITH NEW 185 X 60 X 13 TYRES, POSITIVE EARTH ELECTRICAL SYSTEM STILL WITH IT'S ORIGINAL DYNAMO. A BRIEF HISTORY A LOT OF INACCURACIES HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ON VARIOUS FORUMS DUE TO LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND IGNORANCE ON THE SUBJECT, I HOPE THIS CLEARS THINGS UP FOR THE FUTURE .... NAMELY IT IS A 1963 BUILT CAR! IT IS A PRE PRODUCTION "AIRFLOW " MODEL! THE CHASSIS NUMBERS ARE UNIQUE TO THE DE TOMASO MODELS! THESE HAND FULL OF UNIQUE CORTINA'S, X 2 FOUR DOORS AND 3 X 2 DOORS CAME ABOUT AFTER FORD BOUGHT 80% OF DE TOMASO IN THE EARLY 60'S, HE WANTED TO PRODUCE A CORTINA THAT WOULD OUT PERFORM THE LOTUS WHICH IT DID. THIS CAR WAS PURCHASED NEW IN ITALY WHERE IT SPENT THREE YEARS WITH IT'S FIRST OWNER, IT WAS THEN SOLD TO IT'S SECOND OWNER WHERE IT THEN RESIDED IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE FOR FORTY SEVEN YEARS, IT WAS THEN SOLD TO IT'S THIRD OWNER HERE IN THE UK WHO HAS OWNED IT TO DATE, SOME FOUR YEARS OR SO, NOW REGISTERED HERE ON UK PLATES WITH A CURRENT V5. REGARDING CONDITION, AS MENTIONED THE CARS STRUCTURE IS SUPERB HAVING NEVER BEEN WELDED, BEING RED THE PAINTWORK SUFFERED FADING FROM THE FRENCH RIVIERA SUN, SO THE CAR WAS REPAINTED TO A HIGH STANDARD SOME YEARS AGO AND STILL PRESENTS VERY WELL. THE INTERIOR IS ORIGINAL AND IN SUPERB CONDITION THROUGHOUT, ONLY NIGGEL WOULD BE SOME FADING TO THE BLACK CARPETS, EASY ENOUGH TO REPLACE IF SO DESIRED. THE CAR DRIVES FAULTLESS, VERY BRISK FOR A 57 YEAR OLD CAR, WITH A VERY NICE POWER DELIVERY THROUGH IT'S CLOSE RATIO BULLET GEARBOX WHICH OPTIMISES THE VERY POTENT ENGINE WHICH JUST LOVES TO REV MAKING ALL OF THE RIGHT NOISES. NEEDLESS TO SAY THIS CAR IS RARE, YOU MAY SEE 1 OR 2 GT'S ON THE SHOW FIELD, AND MAYBE I OR 2 LOTUS'S ALSO, BUT YOU WILL NEVER SEE ANOTHER DE TOMASO, FACT! IT GO'S WITHOUT SAYING THAT THIS CAR WILL BE A FANTASTIC ADDITION TO ANY FORD / DE TOMASO COLLECTION AND ALSO MAKE A BLUE CHIP INVESTMENT THAT YOU CAN TAKE TO SHOWS WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY ABOARD IN PERFECT COMFORT. I'M TESTING THE WATER HERE, SO IF SHE DOESN'T ATTRACT A NEW OWNER THAT'S NO PROBLEM, SHE CAN SIT IN THE GARAGE WITH THE OTHERS AND JUST MAYBE DOUBLE IN VALUE OVER THE NEXT 5 YEARS .... THAT'S ASSUMING WE'RE ALL STILL HERE OF COURSE! A DIFFICULT CORTINA TO VALUE .... A COMPARABLE UK 4-DOOR GT WOULD BE CIRCA £20K IMO ( IE NEVER BEEN WELDED! ) ..... SO I'M GOING TO PLACE IT AT A TAD MORE THAN THAT! ....... REMEMBER, TWICE THE COST OF A NORMAL GT BACK IN DAY!!! PLEASE CALL WITH ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE ON ZERO SEVEN EIGHT ONE EIGHT ..... ZERO THREE TWO THREE SIX SIX
