Re: Old poster returning with a 105e Estate

Welcome, Iwan. We exchanged messages a day or so ago. Forgot to ask if the Estate has the original engine still, maybe a 105E 997 ?

Good luck,

Re: Cortina MK1 Estate

Gary, I've experienced that before when we sold my son's EnFo to a guy that always wanted one and sold it a short time later for a profit. Don't mind the fact that when a new owner enjoys driving it for a year or two and then decides to sell it, he should expect a bit of a profit. Shouldn't be label...

'63 LC Clone

Re: Crossflow Cortina on BaT

There was quit a lot of interest in this car. I think 24K would be a reasonable offer considering it has some paint issues.

Re: Driving Lights - What are they from?

Built in May '67. Probably sold at the end of '67 as a '68 in Canada. I know of only one in the U.S., Texas
