Re: Mk1 Cortina Vancouver Island $12.500

You didn't initially say what vintage of BMW you wife drives, I know that BMW has made leaps and bounds with their 4 cylinder engines in recent years but I am not up to speed on their advancements since I retired from the Vancouver Dealership in 2012 after 35 years of wrenching there. I know that t...

Re: Mk1 Cortina Vancouver Island $12.500

I have toyed with the idea of putting my BMW engine in my Green Anglia. I have been driving this 1995 318Ti for 15 years now and it is starting to rust a little bit, the 1800cc engine though puts out about 210 HP and it certainly makes the Ti fly as well as a 6 cylinder Beemer. I modded the cars en...

Re: Mk1 Cortina Vancouver Island $12.500

Wow! A 328i engine and autobox in a Cortina, how big is your shoe horn? The BMWs do have nice running gear though and pretty reliable too, I wonder what he would take for that 4 door. I just had a long text/chat with him and he is absolutely no hurry whatsoever - he has the Enfo disease being an ex...

Re: Mk1 Cortina Vancouver Island $12.500

That car has been for sale for years now, I wonder if he would take the original asking price that was in the 7 to 8k range? The 4 doors are a bit of a detraction but it's still a nice looking car and that big automatic transmission tunnel might accommodate a 5 speed without any mods? Years indeed,...

Re: Mk1 Cortina Vancouver Island $12.500

This must be the Covid-19 discount, the price has dropped to last year's asking price. https://vancouver.craigslist.org/rch/cto/d/victoria-mk-1-cortina/7092389803.html He drops it enough I may have a proper look at it - in some ways this would be an even better candidate than my dear departed GT fo...

Re: MK1 Cortina GT

I watched an episode of wheeler dealers where they fixed up your model of Elan and had nothing but good things to say about it. Bodystyle is not for me but I can appreciate the mechanical side of it. :) I agree, I just don't like the side view, way too short - maybe I should chop it behind the driv...

Re: MK1 Cortina GT

So, first nice day for me to take the Elan out, top down of course, no grandkids, garden work, wifey things etc to get in my way. Very enjoyable indeed...wind in the remainder of my hair, exhaust fumes up the nose and such like - but I am again/still on the hunt for another Mk1 Cortina GT, ideally o...

1949 Anglia Vancouver area

https://vancouver.craigslist.org/search/cta?query=anglia&sort=rel I showed both the 1949 (and the 1951 that I owned a couple of years back), the '51, as I mentioned elsewhere needs a bit of TLC but nothing serious and is SOLID, new chrome etc just before I bought it and all things mechanical worked,...

Some more info on the wagon here

The 1966 is the John McCoy car so should be well 'sorted'.

Re: 1951 Ford Prefect - $8800 Can. Vancouver

Yes, that was mine for a time, it is starting to show a bit of wear and tear since i had it so someone needs to grab it and do the necessary.

25K USD.. Seems overly ambitious for that car I think. Agreed, looks reasonable enough but it is a Mk11 and they just don't get the same love as the Mk1s do and some of the aspects of the car are a bit offputing - for me at least. Drivetrain etc looks to be quite good as does the body. I would "de-...
