Hi everyone, my uncle has a J reg. ford cortina. its was parked in the garage at my grandmas and has just been sat for about 30 odd years, its interior is absolutally superb, the bodywork is not as bad as you possibly think, the rear wheels are bent outwards the engine will obviously be seized, it has the original headlamps grille engine. It has approx 72500 miles on the clock. there is a box with bits of trim, and lights etc in the boot. There is a chrome bumper under the car unsure of condition as i have not been to look because of the snow. The garage it was parked in was taken down early last year and its just came to the point it needs to go before it rots away. i have not got any pictures available yet but will get some a.s.a.p.

Danny.

its a mk2, we think it got a 1.6 put in before it went off the road, but i will check to see if it is the 1.3 or 1.6.

I've always wanted a 1600e (with the wooden dash and all of the dials) in Copper brown - yummy :)

Good luck to who ever gets it!
