Description
 
1968 FORD CORTINA MKII 1600E SERIES 1 4 DOOR SALOON The 1600E was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1967, offering a blend of sporting style/luxury with a comprehensible specification. It is one of the best loved versions of the Cortina, designed by Roy Haynes. The mechanical specification included an 88bhp Cortina 1600 GT engine which achieved a fuel consumption of 25mpg. The 1600E interior came equally well equipped with reclining front seats, sports steering wheel, extra instruments plus wood trim. Production ended in 1970 and Ford never recaptured the original feel of the Cortina Mark II based 1600E after this. This left-hand drive Ford Cortina MarkII Series 1,1600E was originally brought into the UK from Spain in the 1980's when it was registered to a Mr Jesus Manuel Gonzales. It was then sold to Mr Richard Coles who set about a complete nut and bolt restoration which took 12 months and its first showing was at the 1990 1600E Owners Club National Rally. During the restoration some panels were replaced including both front wings, both rear arches, bonnet, front valance and one headlamp panel. The car was then repainted in it's original colour of Saluki Bronze and the light tan trim was cleaned and refitted apart from the carpets and the headlining which were replaced with new. The chrome work was all replaced with 'new' old stock parts, the original engine was replaced with a fully rebuilt motor, and the gearbox and axle units rear were stripped down and fully restored. All new front suspension was also fitted. This wonderful vehicle has had only 4 owners in the UK and 1 owner prior on the continent. It is fitted with sports suspension, Rostyle chrome wheels, with chrome embellishers, spot and fog lights, wing mirrors, motorlito wood-rim steering wheel, walnut dash and door cappings, chrome exhaust tailpipe, motorola radio, AA and RAC badges, roof aerial, plus over mats etc.
