I've driven one that a gal owned in the mid-80's with a 1600 Pinto engine. It feels tail heavy speeding on curves. Don't know if any were ever used as race cars.

That's one I didn't know of.I used to keep track of serial numbers on these.
I had two,& sold one to a guy who lives in the Denver area also.
'62's came with a three main 1340 cc engine,which ran fairly rough.'63's had
the 1500 Cortina engine (there was also a Capri GT).
And yes,that's a crazy price.

I had one in High School back in Blighty. Still on my bucket list but not at that price, I'm afraid.

The car is now on e-bay. I don't think it will make reserve. Presently at $3450 with 4 days to go.

It looks to be not too bad, I wonder what it will fetch and what's the reserve?

"BEST LOOKING CAR THAT FORD UK MADE RHD"....... Nah, Mk1 and 2 Cortina are way better looking...

It's back again at a reduced price. But still too expensive.

I like it but RHD is a bit of a turnoff for me and there are a lot of other nice cars you can get for $15000.

My MK1 Zephyr was RHD and I never felt it was a big deal. Although RHD and column change freaked the wife out a little so she never drove it.

Yes, the column shift would be strange but the floor shift is tolerable, at first I find I sometimes shift from 1st to 4th but you quickly get used to it. I find the vision can sometimes be an issue in traffic making left hand turns, it is hard to see oncoming vehicles with a big SUV in front.
