Rescuing an abandoned car - Mk3 Cortina 2 Door

  • Published on:  Monday, September 28, 2015
  • The long awaited sequel is here. Patience paid off and I managed to purchase an abandoned MK3 Cortina 2 door GXL 1972 Automatic 2.0 car with orginal silver paint and ruby red interior. A rare combination and im sure a very rare Mk3 Cortina. This will be fully restored to a high standard next year. This film shows a brief clip from PT1 then the fully recovery is documented. Some suprises in the film for your viewing pleasure.A must for Cortina fans.Dont worry about the rust it will all be repaired.Going to do a swampy factory resto on the 2 door. Every nut and bolt.Every panel...

    Great stuff! Nice references to the film 'Christine' which I loved.
    Top of the range GXL available in 2 door - never realised that before. I would love to have a late 2000E in purple.
    I vaguely recall yy folks had a '74 (M)1600 XL estate in orangey red with snazzy RoStyle wheels when I was very little. Before I was born they had a white saloon which was the same age as the GXL in the video.
