Ford CORSAIR for saleCurrent customer rating: (29 votes) based on
OUTSTANDING LOW MILEAGE VERY ORIGINAL ONE OF THE BEST
FuelPetrolEngine Size1,498 ccmMileage30,121 MilesEmission class--
ONE FROM MY COLLECTION, THIS IS 1963 ATLANTIC BLUE 1500 PRE-CROSS-FLOW MANUAL FLOOR SHIFT CORSAIR.
FIRST REGISTERED AND SUPPLIED NEW ON THE 27TH OF NOVEMBER '63 TO "PHILLIPS MOTORS LTD" 285 ST. PAUL'S ROAD, SMITHWICK, IT CHANGED HANDS A FEW TIMES REMAINING IN THE WEST MIDLANDS AREAS OF DUDLEY AND STOURBRIDGE BEFORE BEING DRY STORED FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS BEFORE BEING RE-COMMISSIONED BEFORE I GOT THE CAR.
I'M ONLY SELLING IT AS I JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO USE IT AND IT NEEDS TO GO TO A HOME WHERE SOMEONE CAN USE AND ENJOY THIS LOVELY CAR AND ENJOY TAKING IT TO SHOWS AND GOODWOOD WITH THE FAMILY.
BELIEVED TO BE A VERY EARLY PRODUCTION CORSAIR AND ONE OF THE FIRST OFF THE LINE, THIS IS WITHOUT DOUBT ONE OF THE BEST CORSAIRS LEFT.
BASED AROUND THE MK1 CORTINA THE CORSAIR WAS STYLED BY FORD EUROPE TO MIMIC THE FAMOUS '62/'63/'64 AMERICAN FORD THUNDERBIRDS ALSO KNOWN AS THE "BULLET BIRDS" IT WAS IN EFFECT A CORTINA IN AN AMERICAN SUIT.
IN THE OPINION OF MANY OF THE CLASSIC CAR WORLD THE CORSAIR HAS REMAINED SOMEWHAT "UNDER THE RADAR" WITH FORD COLLECTORS AND VALUES HAVE BEEN STEADY BUT BELOW THE VALUES OF SIMILAR AGE CORTINAS AND ESCORTS ETC, HOWEVER OF LATE TE MARKET IS GETTING INTERESTED IN THIS "LOST OVERLOOKED FORD" AND IS RECOGNISED AS BEING OF THE LAST ONE OF THE SO CALLED "OLD SKOOL" FORDS TO STILL,THAT ARE STILL, CURRENTLY, AFFORDABLE,
IRONICALLY IT'S ALSO ONE OF THE RAREST FORDS OF THIS ERA LEFT AND TRADITIONALLY IT'S ALWAYS THE RARER MODEL FORDS THAT ULTIMATELY HOLD THE GREATER VALUES.
MY VIEW IS GRAB ONE NOW BEFORE THE PRICES GO LIKE ALL THE OTHER FORDS OF THIS AGE.
8254 HA IS VERY ORIGINAL THROUGHOUT,IT IS OF COURSE OVER 55 YEARS OLD AND IT WILL NO DOUBT HAVE HAD SOME PAINT AND REPAIRS OVER THE YEARS, BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN TOUCHED IN RECENT YEARS AND SHOWS EXCEPTIONALLY WELL. IT IS OVERALL A GENERALLY UN-MOLESTED EXAMPLE AND PARTICULARLY RUST FREE AND SUPER SOLID, IT COMES WITH ITS PERIOD CORRECT HANDBOOKS AND IT'S ORIGINAL BUFF LOGBOOK..
I CONSIDER IT TO BE ONE OF THE VERY BEST EXAMPLES LEFT OF THIS RATHER RARE CLASSIC FORD.
I TOOK THIS IN AS PART OF A DEAL WITH A 1960 MERCURY I HAD A FEW YEARS AGO
IT HAS SAT QUIETLY IN MY UNIT SINCE, BEING RUN AROUND EVERY FEW MONTHS OR SO AND KEPT COVERED AND CLEANED.
YES THE ORIGINAL NUMBERPLATE IS INCLUDED ALTHOUGH THE CURRENT V5 STATES I BELIEVE IT'S NON-TRANSFERABLE ALTHOUGH YOU MAYBE ABLE TO GET THAT CHANGED.
