Description

Launched on 20th September 1962, the Ford Cortina had eye-catching modern styling. It was originally branded as the Ford Consul Cortina until a modest facelift in 1964, after which, it was sold simply as the Cortina but with four trim levels; Standard, Deluxe, Super and GT. The GT was the most powerful of the trio and as such, is much sought after today. The example that we are delighted to offer was manufactured in left hand drive format at the Dagenham plant in England during 1966. This GT has spent a large part of its life in Austria.
We are informed the coachwork remaining in excellent condition today, both on the topsides and undersides. This very rare MK 1 Ford Cortina 1500 GT presents extremely well, the coachwork being exceptionally straight with the mechanical condition to match. It is ready for road use. The history file is presented and contains several informative invoices. This MK 1 Ford Cortina 1500 GT is a splendid example presented in white with an eye-catching red vinyl interior and ready to enjoy at a wealth of Austrian or continental events.
