The Mark 2 Cortina was introduced in 1966 and. for less than a year of production. it carried on using the engines from the earlier Mark 1 ie: the 1200 and 1500cc units. They introduced another in the shape of the 1300 which was to go on to become the mainstay of the Mark 2's life. However. the good old 1500 unit was axed fairly soon and replaced by the 1600. So. to stumble across such a rare bird as a Mark 2 1500 is rare indeed! Here we have a 1967 Mark 2 1500 in amazingly good shape and with a speedo reading of just 20. 00 which I am told is believed to be correct. Certainly. when you read the history file and bear in mind the fact that the original owner kept the car from brand new until 1999 and the second owner had it from '99 until last year. then you begin to get the picture and consequently find it easy to believe that the mileage is most probably correct. There are all sorts of goodies in the history file - original bill of sale. hand written letters about the car. its mpg. its condition etc. Also letters from other people such as club officials saying how hard and how expensive it would be to find such an original example as this elsewhere!

She has an incredibly quiet engine and pulls like a train. The original red interior is delightful with just a tiny bit of stitching (not tears) coming away on the driver's back rest near the door. The underside is in great condition too. She has her correct spec rubber mats and colour co-ordinated dashboard in Ermine White.

This is a lovely. and exceptionally rare. Cortina and one deserving of a loving home. Her last two MoTs came with no advisories. There's plenty read in the history file. plus a lot of old MoTs. Her first owner (67-99) wrote a charming letter wishing the car's second owner as much pleasure with it as he had enjoyed!
So here is an ultra rare early production Mark 2 with the 1500 engine. thereby managing to cope with modern traffic admirably. A true 1960s classic. Thanks for reading and I can help with delivery if required. Martin (07595 020282)
