Sold for $18,030 - that's a $6000 profit.
Let's see if "Bis"'s comment gets deleted.

Won't get deleted - now that Bat has their fee. :D

Re: 1967 Ford Cortina Estate BAT

I didn't know that about BAT, are posts censored at the request of the seller? I seriously do not know, there is a "flag" where commenters can have comments deleted, appears to be an automatic function and appears to be relatively few flags needed for that. Do BaT censor as well? We may never know ...

Re: 1967 Ford Cortina Estate BAT

I noticed the seller got huffy when asked why he was selling it after 3 months. I hate to say it,but I hope he gets burned on the deal. Yes, I saw that too, he should just be up front on why he wants to unload it, the way he said makes you think he is hiding something?? He is hiding good manners. P...

No affiliation, just stumbled across it when I was (again) searching for a rust free :D MK1 Cortina GT.

Re: MK1 Cortina fuse box.

In over 50 years of Mk1 Cortinas, never felt the need to add a fuse box on stock vehicles.

Re: Found Even More Cortinas (& Parts)!

The engine parts are sold.The cars are (I believe) sold complete. I was told "Make a fair & honest offer". Tough to make a fair and honest offer on that lot - what is fair and honest for some is an insult to others...and the variety/quantity makes it tough to come up with a number which makes sense...

Re: Cortina MK1 Estate

A little profit is one thing,but that's just crazy! Can you say "greedy"? I've also never figured out why people only own these wagons for a short time. Agreed, having worked my way through a variety of Mk1's, basic, GTs and LCs I am now ready to lay hands on a wagon (Mk1 of course). I was set to b...

Re: '63 LC Clone

Not the first time this has been to the dance... I politely (politely for me at least :D ) requested more info on the car. "Nice car but you really need to stop using "Lotus" anywhere in the ad - that is wholly incorrect, Clone is also incorrect - call it what it is - a Cortina. That said, I am inte...

Re: Ford Cortina '67 GT 5 speed

It's been for sale for several years now. First by the owner, then Park Place and now (maybe a couple more in between, too), BaT. Looking at the dyno sheet, I find it interesting that the max BHP figures are around 130ish and torque about 100ish. The stock ST170 (SVT) motor makes Horsepower: 170 hp...

It's gone, didn't reach the reserve I guess.
It is "gone" because it not only met reserve, it surpassed it.

Re: Cortina wagon for sale

Wonder if he would swap for my Lotus?

And he could keep the drivetrain as I would be inserting something a little more exciting in that space! :D

Re: Lotus Cortina MK1 '67

I wonder if this is the same car that I used to see on Craigslist when I stayed in Palm Springs? I loved going through Craigslist on my vacations there, I would imagine buying something nice down there and driving it back to Canada. If genuine - and it looks it to me - you will have to bring a big ...
