Mk1 Cortina GT...again, Yes, again!

Okay, same as before...still looking for another Mk1 Cortina GT to replace the one I foolishly sold. :( :( :( Ideally in reasonable condition throughout - though NOT looking for a rustbucket and I don't care too much about the drivetrain as I will probably replace it anyway, as I tend to do, :D Idea...

If that's Gord Leach's old car, it needs a ton of work.
I believe that was the one...and yes it needs a TON of work.

For sale - again...

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/search/cta?query=cortina&sort=rel&srchType=T No affiliation - looked at it last time it was for sale and decided it needed more work than I was prepared to do...just like last time! It's been on here a couple of times...I believe it started (recent) life as a racer w...

Re: 1966 Cortina GT Canada

"Been there, done that! Unfortunately (for me) he doesn't want my Elan otherwise I would have Frankenstiened this one...my last GT with 240hp was nice but I think something north of 300hp would be even more fun" So you spoke with him, is he firm on that price? Didn't talk with him, just did the ema...

Re: 1966 Cortina GT Canada

Yes it is a nice looking car, I actually hesitated putting this advert up thinking that maybe I should buy it???? I have the missing badging and a nice new set of Lotus quarter bumpers that would go well on this car. Reality, common sense and my Wife won out though so here the ad is. Been there, do...

Re: 1966 Cortina GT Canada

Agreed, looks well done, now all I have to do is persuade the owner that they need to take my Lotus Elan in trade! :D


Now, where I leave that spare S2000 drivetrain I had?

I could sit and watch this kind of racing all day..
Ditto - and during this Covid thing I have been doing a great deal of that!

Saw my first real race in the early '60s and will watch almost any kind of racing but I still prefer "this kind of racing" every time.

Re: New Toy - Mk1 Cortina Wagon - drivetrain options?

Any progress? Due to a cancer situation in the family, (not me) I put it on hold. Now that things are settled and the cancer is in remission I have decide that another crazy build is not doable. The last one took 7 years to complete and if I took the same amount of time with this one, I would be in...

He has now changed the ad to read Deluxe, not GT. Must have heard from someone and gotten a clue.

I sent him a quick email to "update" his info...said he doesn't really know much about "these" cars. :D

Isn't that Fred's old Cortina that had a Fiat engine originally?
That's the one, then I tried all of the following drivetrains (put them in place etc) before settling on the S2000 as the weapon of choice
Zetec
Miata
K24DE
SHO (Gen1)
Pinto

Should never have sold it. :(

Re: 1951 Ford Prefect - $8800 (Kerrisdale)

That's my old neighbourhood and that car is now in it's second year of being for sale, it is hard to imagine that it will sell anytime soon with this Covid-19 thing depressing the market. All the local car shows are canceled until further notice. That's the one I had for a while and is a really goo...

Yeah but its made the page unreadable. On this 1 page alone there was 4 adds, after every second comment. Screws up the flow of the comments.
I saw the same thing - and simply scrolled past the ads.

Or to put it better, I "flowed" past the ads.
