1968 Ford Other deluxe estate Description

..Barn fresh, Cortina Deluxe Estate. I have owned this Cortina Estate since the mid ninties and drove it to a few car shows, hen other cars came along and this car got parked in the barn about 1997 or so. I bought it off an estate. This Cortina is a straight forward restoration now. It is 97% original from the paint to the drive train, ll I have done is replace the tires and rebuilt the carb, rakes and boiled the gas tank, ut that was20 years ago!!! The brakes still work but the clutch master cyl is stuck. The engine turns and I had it started a few years ago on a lark, ut it will need all new fluids now. This car is remarkably solid with only one rust thru hole under the front fender on the out rigger see photo,the rest is SURFACE RUST only and faded/ peeling dark green paint . The windshield is cracked and the side view mirror glass is broken. Everything else worked last time I had a battery in it including the factory AM radio. It even has one of the original Lucas headlights.The interior is as it left the factory and still very nice with only the usual dash top split. Seats front and rear, eadliner and rear mat in perfect shape,factory tools under the rear lift up seat that also folds to make a flat bed for hauling or camping. the carpet has seen better days. Glass is good This car is straight and true and one of a very few imported. I even contacted Ford about my Cortina and they were surprised and please to provide information to me. I also have Ford correspondence, he owners manual and sales brochure.Please look at all the photos and bid to own this unique little Ford Wagon. Ask question and I will try to answer.
I hope all the links work...,,,BTW...PLEASE EMAIL ME IF I'M NOT ASKING ENOUGH,I WOULD BE HAPPY TO RAISE THE PRICE TO MAKE YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOUR PURCHASE!!.... :o)

btw......I polished a spot and the paint took a shine, aybe some of you could polish the Cortina and drive it as is, ith a classic "patina" look

People ...this Cortina 1600 could be up and running/driving in a weekends worth of service,it appears that maybe thats what I should do to garner more interest that this sweet little English Ford deserves, et it driving then relist it accordingly with a new reserve to reflect its uniqueness in the USA...This is a rare opportunity to own one of Fords best practical designs .....:>)
