  1. Mk2 cortina

    Big task you have there, I'm impressed with your repairs they look well done, nice car too well worth saving not many GT's left.
  2. Hi guys, I'm looking for a pair of track control arms for my 1600E, I came across an Australian company, Protex who make new ones for around £80 a side would anyone who bought these let me know if they were ok https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OEM-QUALITY-Control-Arm-FR-LOW-For-FORD-CORTINA-MK2/172766859574?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D49919%26meid%3Ddb7fe4c1e8194aaf8b2e1d235d890909%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D352295801119%26itm%3D172766859574&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 Best Regards, Mark

  5. mk1 fiesta gold

    I love the Fiesta, one of the best driving Fords ever! good work though lot of crusty bits to sort out.
  6. Back on the road

    Yes maybe but I have had the car since 2005 and this is the first time I have done anything with the ignition system, The distributor is electronic, off an early Fiesta XR2 I was told.
  7. Back on the road

    Well she may be in great shape you never know with an MOT, but thank you.
  8. I lost my job last year and was forced to leave my car off the road but now I'm back working again, I took the car for its MOT 1st March and it passed with no advisory but on the way she was miss firing and spluttering, I can't blame the car it had not run in three months so I am to blame, being in the garage I assumed it would be fine, she finally cleared once warmed up and with fresh fuel. I decided to changed the ignition leads and cleaned the distributor cap and rotor arm, and tomorrow I will buy a new coil and fit that too, just to be sure she is fighting fit for the new season of shows.
  9. Desperately needed. Mk1 cortina Gt TCA

  10. my MK1 MEXICO

    Excellent job and a car to be proud of.
  11. my ford cortina new thread started moor pics

    Great project, I restored a MK1 GT years ago, I loved that car I have fond memories of it, I have often thought about buying another but only have room in my garage for one and my 1600E is very much part of the family I can't bear to part with it, they are both fantastic classics, good luck with it.
