Clearance Sale - Hard to Find
1962 FORD CORTINA Mk1 SPORT COUPE
SUPER RARE "JAIL BAR" GRILL 220 MODEL HARD TO FIND



Little old lady owner. only to church on Sunday.

The Cortina Mk1 was introduced to Australia in 1962 with two models. the base model 220 (poverty pack coupe) and the Deluxe. Because the Deluxe was £25 pounds more than the base model 220. buyers opted for the Deluxe model making the 220 base model rare. Add to this the "Jail-Bar" grill which was only ever available in the first batch of Cortinas before being updated makes this base model 220 super rare. This makes finding a real 'Jail-Bar' Cortina rarer than hen's teeth. When was the last time you saw one of these?

A diamond in the rough - No reserve auction.

Only read on if you are prepared to undertake a complete restoration on this rare 2-door Cortina 220 coupe. It has been in storage for nearly 30 years. last registered in 1988. The original 1200cc engine is the correct matching numbers that the Cortina was built with. it has a 4-speed manual gearbox with floorshift. Colour is white with red trim. It does not run. and the tyres are perished. one tyre is missing all together. What you see is what you get. it is mostly complete but study the photos and ask questions if you want something clarified. I'm happy to send out more photos to those interested.

Bring a trailer.

Like any car that is 50 years old it does have rust. it is mostly concentrated to the lower panels (repairable) although you can buy many replacement restoration parts quite cheaply. There is some rust in the floors which will require sections put in - it's not rotted through but I can see some holes on a cursory look. You are welcome to come and view the Cortina anytime by appointment. it is located in Pascoe Vale (northern suburb of Melb). Delivery to any suburb in Melbourne is an extra $100. otherwise bring a trailer.

IMPORTANT - READ THIS TWICE:
If you intend on bidding. then you are bidding to buy (No reserve auction - must be sold) If your eBay rating is less than 20 then you MUST contact me first before bidding. otherwise I will be cancelling your bid.

VERY IMPORTANT - DON'T BID UNTIL YOU READ THIS:
At the end of the auction. if you are the winning bidder a 50% non-refundable deposit is required within 24 hours of the end of the auction. No excuses. if you are unable to do this then don't bother bidding. The final balance is payable on pick-up before the Cortina leaves the driveway. You are welcome to come and view it anytime during the auction. or I'm happy to email you more photos.

Don't miss this - No reserve auction

There are only two times in life. Now and Too late.
