Here is my delectable 1974 Ford Cortina 2000E. These top of the range, facelift Mark 3 models are rarely offered these days. Reasons? Well, probably two really. One, those who have one of these gems have no intention of selling and number two, there are not that many left.

She is a 74 model as I say, a manual and goes like the wind. I drove these old girls back in the day when they were still young fillies and I had forgotten how well they drive. These 2.0 Pinto engines are something like 95bhp and the handling, response and suspension is all there to be enjoyed.

Body and paint-wise, she is a really pretty car. I know they are up in the five-figure bracket these days (mine isn't) but for the sake of a little weekend tlc to the rear of the outer sills, you will probably not want to do anything else. Her underside is great, as is the interior although the previous owner of 15 years (always a bonus) removed the 70s velour seats and replaced them with another set of 70s Cortina seats, the black ones from the GLX. Wow!

Superb to be in and wonderful to drive. She went on to Irish plates in 2005 when the previous owner bought her (she was WAN 376M) and you will get her back on UK plates easily enough with the assistance of a V55 from DVLA. I have imported her and via my VAT portal, I have informed HMRC of her arrival (NOVA...notification of vehicle arrival) and there were no taxes to pay. She is legally here now and you do the rest.

There's a very nicely presented history file with her (another bonus) showing service and repair details from 2010 until now. New radiator, brake master, new seat belts, new clutch, hardened valve seats for unleaded fuel, front tie bar, drop links and roll bar poly bushes, new front brake calipers etc.

A really nice example capable of moving on into a higher price bracket. But there now to be enjoyed, driven and looked at. A fine Mark 3 2000E

She is not a new car, nor is she a three-year-old used car. She is a piece of antique motoring history and, as such will have quirks and maybe even the odd fault. These old girls are collectors' items; not new cars sold to you by some slick, suited salesman in a retail park car showroom. Generally they are not meant to be everyday transport. These old gems - in this case 46-years-old - are sold as seen. Should you buy without viewing, then she is sold on the basis of the advertisement you have read the photos, or extra photos, you have seen as well with the assistance of any answers to questions you have received from me. Treat these classics with the respect they deserve and make sure they have love, time and effort lavished on them. Even the very best need permanent on going care. Practically all will have undergone a degree of restoration work or improvement at some stage. If it's a three-year-old car dating from the 1960s that you are after, then you are out of luck. Short of acquiring a Tardis that is.

Anyway, thanks for reading. I am here to answer any questions you may have and, remember, that I also provide a delivery service. Martin the details below)
