Comments and questions to the seller:from John Pearce, dated 02 april 2014
Just checking re your Cortina Estate - is it as good as it looks. I would have to travel from Kent to view and i dont want to waste your time or mine. Really like to know - rust issues, condition of subframe body and paint. Please be square with me as i am very interested in a solid car, and i have years of experience with classics and will be coming with my mate John a classic car mechanic to view and check the car if it is worth the trip. Are there any issues i need to be aware of, i know its an old Ford but if i am forewarned then i can be prepared for the problems. Not afraid of hard work, just hate welding. Do you have any further photographs. Regards John 07958401258
