I have done some research and found out it is December 1965

Very rare Base/Air-Flow Model.

Believed one of only 2 known in the UK. ???

I'm not now breaking and have only sold rear brakes and prop/carb.

 

1965 Mk1 Cortina 2 door

No sunroof.

I will descibe the main bit which is the shell. ask if you need info on trim.

You are very welcome to view. the car is on ramp ready for your inspection.

The car is LHD import from Slovakia. there is no ID with the vehicle but can be easily obtained.

The shell is in superb condition as far as rot goes. the only parts which need attention are the front out riggers on both sides and to rear of both

front chassis rails plus small patch in o's front floor foot well.

The under f/wing splash panels are mint not needing any repair. front panel is very  good so are the floors f&r. and under seat.

Both front strut tops will need attention just around top mnt. holes.

Small bit of welding has been done to o/s lower inner sill and o/s lower rear panel.

The sills are not in need of any repair. also rear chassis rails full length the same.

Front wings are in good condition. they may have had some filler around h/l's.

There is surface rust in areas underneath which will clean up.

The boot area is also rot free. fuel tank is good.

The engine/box is  1200cc pre x/flow. ith head removed and all relative parts in the boot.

The engine is seized. best strip and re-build.

4 speed  3 rail 2e box. similar to Mexico Mk1

All brakes free.

4 std rims/tyres.

This is the base air-flow model

there are p14 discs/cals fitted as std.

Radiator is the big header one same as fitted to the Twin Cam and Mexico. (Ideal new Historic Rally C'ship).

One rear air vent is missing. Back lights complete.

The previous owner appears to have been very fastidious having fitted steering links with oil soaked cloth and wire to stop rusting on threads.

also the top mounts the same.

Please feel free to ring me if you want any more information (can't be bothered with txt/emails)

I find it more customer friendly to talk over phone.

I've had a good poke with screwdriver and don't think I've missed any sections.

What an ideal shell to convert into rally/race car.

Classified ad. with offers.
