1975 Ford Cortina 1600L petrol


A great little car!


Automatic transmission needed overhauling at about 20000 miles.

At about 25000 miles, alternator was replaced due to incorrect connections made by a 'helpful' friend.

Sometimes noticed a slight clatter from the rear end - a mechanic said it probably needed a little 'tightening up', but thought it to insignificant to bother.

General Comments:

Strange that transmission needed work so early on, but trouble free otherwise.

A comfortable and roomy car with excellent handling and ride.

I had four other Cortinas after this one with no transmission trouble, or any other trouble for that matter.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
