Ford Cortina MK! 1500. This car is extremely original and has never been welded. Its solid from front to back and is as good as you can get bodyshell wise. We will UK register it for the new owner so no need to worry about the paperwork. All tax and duty has been paid. Car starts runs and drives.
Body - Totally original 4 door MK1 cortina shell. Never been welded and not needing any either. Solid original inner wings, strut tops, wings, doors, sills, arches. Bodywise this car is in incredible condition for its age. Youd have to look at 100s of these cars before you found a shell as original and untouched as this. Paint also looks original but not guaranteed seeing as it is 56 years old. Strut top number still visible. Being an export spec shell it has the extra strengthening bars on the strut tops to the bulkhead. Paintwork is presentable enough but is definitely showing a bit pattina. Their a few rub throughs on the edges but that just adds to its character. Bonnetr picked up a bit of damage in transit.
Mechanics - Original 1500cc engine and 4 speed box. Car starts runs and drives. New aftermarket carb has been fitted and i think it would be better with a second hand original item as it runs ok but not 100 percent. All standard suspension and brakes. All in working order but will obviously need checked over before using in anger. Car is showing 58000 miles
Interior - Again all original red interior. In the main good but drivers seat top half has burst and will need repaired.
Wheels - Standard steels and tyres with hubcaps and trim rings.
Overall a mega solid original old car. Very hard to find like this. Ideal for a standard minter or project car, big wheels , big engine sleeper......you choose.
