1967 Ford Cortina 1600 E 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland


Super reliable workhorse


Rust had started to appear on wings soon after purchase.

Interior was rattly and got damp easily.

Ignition failed after 85,000 miles.

Engine ceased up after 91,000 miles.

General Comments:

Generally very reliable, but in the end was really showing its age inside and out.

Engine was faultless until it ceased up and I sold it to a mechanic for £10. He did up and I saw it on the roads for a good few years afterwards.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
