1967-68 white two dr manual...with good body & glass. Has a 1500cc engine.. but came new with a 1600 crossflow. Hasn't run in many yrs. New Koni struts were installed as well as susp. bushings & rear brakes, and other work, just before it was stored. $1850

1968 dark green (hard to find) four dr manual. Good body & glass. The 1600 crossflow cyl. head is off...it likely needs a ring & valve job. All the parts are there. Original black & yellow # CA license plates with "pink" title. $1800.

1970 sky blue two dr automatic. Some repairable rust but a solid project car with low mileage. No engine. Original CA blue with yellow # plates. If you're considering a engine & 5 sp trans conversion automatic Cortinas have larger trans tunnels.. so you can fit a T5 in without cutting out the floor. Have CA title. $1500

1969 light tan or beige two dr 1600 Xflow manual trans less engine. Solid car with little rust that ran a yr ago. All the parts are there to reassemble it if you have a 1600 crossflow long block for it. Has original CA black & yellow # lic. plates. It's CA non opped with a CA title.. so you'll have no DMV reg. problems or fees. $1900

Also have lots of 60's Cortina and some Anglia parts. Ph # is a landline with answering machine after 4 rings...so no text mess. five one zero six five eight four two six eight

So what would be fair prices for these? Newbie trying to get a sense of the market.

That's about right for a MK2 in that condition. A bit more for a MK1 in the same condition.

My opinion is that the price is high. If it was't it would have been snapped up by now. It has been for sale for several months.

Just a paint job can easily cost 4K and by the time you pay for the car and paint it you are upside down.

My 2 cents.

I brought my Mk2 from this gentleman back in 2012 for about the same money. The engine wasn't running at the time but did with about 1/2 hour of tinkering. The body was very rusty due to sitting on that lot for about 13 years. Money wise depending what you want at the end of the project, 20k+ is a realistic number. I did the most of it myself except final body paint and seat upholstery.

It is really difficult to put a blanket price in these cars, a lot of people just ask too much and others don't seem to care. Years ago in Vancouver I used to cruise the lanes and ally ways in search of derelict vehicles and I would often find them although not always for sale. I think one of my better back lane scores was a very early, very plain Mk2 Cortina 1600, it was so plain that it had rubber flooring and the long magic wand shifter. The older owner had parked it under his deck out of the weather because a universal joint went out on it, when I enquired if I could buy it he let it go for two hundred bucks. The body was rust free and paint okay so I snapped it up. Obviously timing and opportunity is important but if you want one right now you will have to settle for a more expensive, lower quality car. I wonder how many of these cars are lurking out there right now tucked away in their senior owners garage???

I have talked to this fella with the white cortina before (first post in this string) and the rear quarters have been messed with. I don't remember what was done but to me it would be a lot of work to fix. My thought would be $800 at the very most.
