This very rare Ford Cortina 1600 GT Estate was converted to 'Savage' specification by Jeff Uren Ltd for a Mr JL Rogers of Potters Bar. Hertfordshire and was the second to last Mk2 Savage estates built.
There are many invoices that accompany this Savage The original invoice for the ‘savage' conversion shows that extras were supplied and fitted.
• Pair of Traveller reclining front seats with sub-frames and runners
• Weathershields Sunway slimline folding roof
• Dunlop wheels
• Lucas quartz halogen headlamp conversion
• Twin spot lights (Silver Sabre) with a two position switch
• Matching wing mirror and static seat belts.

This invoice nearly doubles the costs of this Savage when new. In 2002. the engine. radiator and brakes received an overhaul. A new set of carpets were fitted and a pair of uprated shock absorbers were fitted in 2003.
In January 2005 the car was purchased by an enthusiast and collector of Savage Cortinas. during the current ownership. a fully comprehensive restoration has been carried out. costing approximately £45. 00. 00 and included numerous upgrades that were available in period from Jeff Uren Ltd.

The car has been repainted to the correct specification white. with hand-painted coachline pin-stripes in red. Other items that have been renewed. include all new exact and correct reproduction badges. a pair of uprated rear leaf springs and vented front brake discs.

Contour 6 seats and rear seats in leather have now been fitted. Interestingly. an original. but never used Sunway roof has been fitted. to replace the identical original roof. A genuine period and fully functioning Ford radio unit has been sourced and fitted.

During the restoration. the engine was sent to Oselli for a full rebuild to 60" oversize and upgrade to Oselli '230' specification of 3. 1 litres with a DFI5 single carburettor. Swaymar exhaust manifolds with a Chris Tullett bespoke stainless steel exhaust system have been fitted. A rebuilt Mark 1 Capri gearbox has been installed with a 3. 09 ratio Capri limited slip differential.

In July 2010. further minor works were carried out. including an oil and filter change and fitment of a new clutch master cylinder. Since then the front suspension has been fully overhauled and the overdrive unit re-conditioned.

• 4 x tyres
