Re: 1969 FORD CORTINA 1300 Deluxe - $14600

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

Re: 1969 FORD CORTINA 1300 Deluxe - $14600

I had wondered over at the Lotus forum whether this was a Portugal only model for tax purposes. However, a Portuguese subscriber said there was no 1300 GT there either. I wonder if someone stuck an Escort 1300GT on the trunk and this guy fell for it.

Re: 1976 Capri $7500

In some ways I see his point. When I was trying to sell my XJ6 people would just send an email that said, "$5500." Not a question about the condition, not a phone call, not even a name. It is hard to take people like that seriously but it id the world we live in. And I say this as someone who has bo...

Re: Four Cortinas from the mid 60s will be sold at Sotheby's in Oct.

As I noted elsewhere, the "1967" rally car is clearly pre-airflow so how can it be a 67?

Re: 4 MK1 Cortinas

They say the 3rd one is a 67 but it's not even an airflow car. I know you can fake the grill but there are no vents on the C pillar.

Modern cars are tightened up at considerably higher rates. The only info I could find about our type of cars was on a hot rod forum where one commenter wrote this, Here are the proper dry torques for the different sizes of studs:7/16-inch diameter 50 to 60 lb-ft; 12mm diameter 70 to 80 lb-ft;1/2-inc...
