Technical specifications, photos and description:
This is a very rare pre airflow , 1 year only model , The dashboard is unique to this year
I bought from a friend as a lock down project , It's had a mega amount of time and money spent on the car , My friend bought from Darren Jenkins of Power Park autos Ltd Banbury who are renowned classic Ford restoration experts, He (Dazza) features a lot in Shed and buried and the motorbike show with Henry Cole
Hence the paint and powder coating was done by them.
It was subject to a major refurbishment around 4 years ago and has been an ongoing project both for my friend and me on lockdown , unfortunately I have lost motivation and its taking up room which I could do with.

Other than a battery and a spare wheel tyre ,Spare wheel needs painting .Don't think it needs anything spending , it's all here and refurbished so, it's just labor
Probably around a weeks work to finish
The body many many years ago (10- 20 years maybe ?) had new rear wheel arches, and repair plates in areas , These repairs were then filled over as opposed to compete panel replacement , Due to this the preparation in some areas could have been better executed before paint ( I am fussy ) The paintwork is superb ( professional) also some minor chips due to storage however totally lovely looking , Please refer to the original google images below for the condition of the body before paint.
Sold with needing to be finished off and not been run for 4 years , kept in dry storage with a cover on , collection by trailer or low loader etc. .
Collection from Didcot south Oxfordshire

Car owes me more than the start price .
Classic Fords are only heading one way so they are a good investment
Please bare in mind this is a genuine UK supplied GT and pretty rare to be the early version Consul Cortina GT too .
This the data from how many left , Not sure how accurate this is, my friend was a member of the Cortina owners club who verified the rarity of it when he owned .
