Ford Cortina 3.0 Pickup, Imported From South Africa a couple of years ago and we finally got round to doing something with it. Its a factory fitted 3.0 V6 Essex with a 5 speed box upgrade. Very good looking truck which comes with a years MOT and will be UK registered in the new owners name. Might still require a bit of minor fettling to get it how you wanted however its solid, starts runs and drives and is MOTd
Body - Very solid straight truck. Underneath is all solid and has just passed an MOT. Evidence of a couple of repairs on floor in past but chassis is rock solid. Load bed is good. Paintwork is very tidy. There are a few minor marks on it - Small bubble on scuttle panel, mark on roof from transport and bubble on bottom of one door. These are all minor and overall its a cracking looking bit of kit.
Mechanics - Factory fitted 3.0 V6 Essex as these were available from new. Upgraded to a 5 speed box. Car had just been motd. Had new rear bearings, wiring sorted, new speedo cable, new temp sender for MOT. Exhausts are straight through stainless steel with only cherry bombs at the back so its quite loud but sounds good. Car starts runs and drives and as said just been MOTD. Auto Choke not currently connected , we have never needed it but new owner might want to do this. Tappets a wee bit noisy but seems common on the 3.0s.
Interior - Retrimmed Seats , good carpet and headlining, Wood dash and door cappings. Door cards have speaker holes. Very tidy inside for a pickup.
Wheels - 15" Alloys with good tyres. One kerbing mark on one rear alloy.
Overall this is a cracking looking truck which is motd and useable. Will require a bit minor fettling as lay around here for a couple of years but great basis for a work truck / advertising vehicle. Please feel free to come and see it when it is safe to do so. We have a ramp so you can look underneath. Delivery can be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
Thanks for looking
