1980 Ford Cortina Basic 2.3 V6


My dream car


Whole previous engine gone wrong - 1.3 in line 4. I've replaced it with 2.3 V6.

Water pump in 2.3.

General Comments:

Great car. I drive it because I wanted. Probably will drive Cortina for few more years (50 or something ;)

Huge engine and rear wheel drive gives you enormous joy while driving. Despite it's 24 years it's still comfortable and quiet. Only handling isn't best I've ever seen, but that is I think because of old rubber in front suspension.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
