The Ford Cortina Story

Avatar

Veröffentlicht

auf



It would start with one man’s vision. The dream of a car that could win races. That would sell over 4.3M cars over 20 years. That would change with fashions and become a thing of legend. That could help a rep make his sale by taking the company’s latest teasmade from Slough to Swindon on a tricky Tuesday in the rain. That could take the kids and their luggage on a week’s holiday to Clacton while using slightly less fuel and with slightly more luggage space. That car would be the Ford Cortina and this is its story!

    When I think of British Ford Cortinas 1st thing comes to mind is TV shows like The Professionals and The Sweeney. Here in Australia Ford was going to make a 5 Lt V8 production version to race at Bathurst be a challenger for the Holden SLR 5000 Torana but the project was cancel because of new tough Australian Government safety laws on high powered production cars e.g. ( Big engines + Shit brakes = road deaths )

    Had MK2, MK3, MK4 and MK5, loved them, did all my own maintenance and probably did every possible diy repair at one time or other. My favourite was the Mark 3 Ghia bright orange with black vinyl roof.

    Specs on the Consul Classic, 1.7 and 2l inline 4? Had to check it out because I don't know of a Ford straight 4 1.7L (except the Puma's), and the cars weren't made in those capacities.

    Great vid.
    With reference to other people's comments, a funny thing is that the Anglia was angular. I mean the rear windscreen's reverse rake.
    I dread to think how I might fare if I tried to make a video with voice-over. People would have a heyday.
    Oh, one last thing …. Dagenham is in East Angular 🙈🙉🙊

    When I visited Istanbul in 1989 I found the Cortina still in production by Anadol, offering it with a 1-litre engine and even a 5-speed gearbox which i remember never was introduces to the car by Ford UK or Germany.

    In the 1960s the Hillman Hunter/Minx was a better car all around – better in looks as well. Far more reliable too. It won the 1968 London-Sydney rally. It was made in knock-down form in Iran from 1966 called the Paykan, where is was found very rugged in the rough Iranian environment. Full Iranian production of the car was in 1985 until 2005. The pickup version lasted until 2015 – 49 years of life. Not bad at all for a car introduced in 1966. I find it strange there is no mention of this car, which outlived its successor, the Talbot Solara. It was more successful, as one of the direct competitors, of the Corina. The Hunter was a great British success story that few know about.

    In Australia, they shoehorned the cast iron straight six (3.3 and 4.1) from the Falcon into the mark 3 & 4 Cortinas. They went like a shower of shit. However, they were so heavy they cracked the chassis rails. Ford Australia's fix was to drill a hole in the cracks to stop it spreading further….

    Wrong Carpi image used. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Consul_Classic#Consul_Capri
    The 2.3 made for good towing vehicle the torque was the important figures to consider. The 2.0 litre OHC engine was 99 hp and torque was115 lb⋅ft. The 2.3 V6 gave figs of 112 hp and 130. Plus the V6 was a very smooth engine.

    As an 18-year old kid, I had a '76 2.0 XL automatic, NPW 983P, loved it to bits. With a mate, we went on a 1600 mile road trip from Surrey up to Loch Ness and back via Glen Coe, Loch Lomond, the Lake District and back down the M6, M1 and the recently opened M25.
    These days, an adventure for an 18-year old is sadly somewhat different.

    seem to recall that the 'Aeroflow' ventilation system used eyeball type vents on the dash, which worked well in the Australian climate. Wish modern vehicles used them.

    In South Africa we LOVED the Cortina! In óur own family, my Mom had a 1.6L station wagon, Dad had the 2.0GL sedan, his oldest brother had the 3.0GLS and his youngest brother had an AWESOME XR6! With Grandad rounding it all off in his 3.0GLE Granada : thís all happened in 1979 – 1983.

    So the mark 4 cortina was just a top and tailed mk3 carrying over the dashboard and front doors (rear doors and estate rear of the previous taunus)? Was an effective facelift especially the cortina but not exactly revolutionary

    I'd love to find a 67 2dr here in the states. I think it's a stunning looking car that with a little bit of a American muscle would be a great performer and a heck of a sleeper. Ford of America really dropped the ball because they should have sold it along with the Pinto which would have really hurt Chevrolet Vega and AMC Gremlin/Hornet sales. Thank you for a great video about a car not really known in the states. Your facts and humor are spot on and I always look forward to seeing your next video.

    My first car was a 1970 Cortina Wagon I bought for $155 CAD in 1980. Had it for 2 years and sold it for $100. The worst thing about it was the gear shift lever was connected to the transmission with a plastic part that stripped out one day while a friend was driving it. I had to use electric motor wire wrapped around it and the transmission to hold it in place.

    This video was a bit more interesting.

    I almost got a 1970 Cortina GT. I was really lusting after the US version of the GT since we had just had our second child, and stuffing two kids into the MGB was beyond the pale. I say almost because I ordered one in March 1971, little knowing that the longest strike in English Ford's history was about to begin. Delivery slipped to April, then May, then my dealer called on May 20 to say it was now going to be June 10. My wife had enough and we went out looking for a car we could get now. We ended up with a Toyota Corona, a totally pedestrian car, but one I could drive away the next day. The Corona was a good, reliable car, and it helped make the Toyota reputation in the US. Unfortunately, 1970 was the last model year for a Cortina here, and the supply problems caused by the strike didn't help the rapidly deteriorating reputation of British cars in general here.
