  1. Today
  2. Hi, Not sure what you mean?? Mine is a facelift 1975 and the seat belt anchors with its own bolt.
  3. It's possible that it's a pre facelift, facelift thing as I've not had any from a mk4 and mk5 have the seat belt catch attached to it. I have 1 of the lower rails and several of the taller.
  4. Who knows mate. After a few years around cortinas I cant see me not having another in the future. Prob a nice little 1600 xflow SA backie or an estate for chucking camping gear in the back of & pottering around in. Got to get the performance car bug out of my system so that’s what I’m after for now. Will still be seeing Cortina mates locally with their projects. Gonna try to make cortina day nxt year. I’ll prob be .ed then that i wont have the GT to celebrate the 50’th with 😬
  5. Yesterday
  6. Thanks for the replies guys - I missed them until now. I'll need to take my steering cowling off and check which one I have, and will get back to you. Cheers Rich
  7. Is Craig’s post any help with this?? Thanks, Tony
  8. Thanks guys. The time feels right to move on now, easy to type that not so easy to look at the car and feel it. But I have the urge for something quick that won’t involve pulling the car apart. I will get another one day as I think once cortinas are in your blood that’s where they stay.
  9. Of course you realise the P100 cable s to long for the car. You need the second cross member & floor mounts the tube for bulkhead erc

  16. Should have some, if someone knows the height of the legs on the outers as I have some with 70mm back legs and 75mm front legs and some with 60mm front legs and 55mm back legs.
  17. Hello, Has anyone got the frames which the seats actually fix to? I need both driver and passenger frames. Thanks, Tony
  18. 15x6 4x108 PCD ET23 Nice Set of Wheels i bought from Nog on here a couple of years back. Looked good on my cortina but i have around 30 wheels I’ve amassed and i keep tripping over them. As i’m selling my car i don’t really need them any more. Located in Bath, Somerset. £200 Thanks, Rich
  19. What a loverly honest car that is shame your parting with her bit I suspect your after a beige base model mk5 good luck with the sale
  20. Strange how they reversed the connectors orientation on them. Mine is the top one but has about a foot of cable between connectors and switch so different mod again?
  21. There's two wiring combinations on the plug of the pre-facelift. Got both see pics.
  22. Hi Rich, I have this facelift (stamped 75) which I bought as a spare a while ago. Must admit I didnt pay attention to the wiring differences to my pre facelift one. I can now see how much shorter the cable is and different connections but as you say they can be re soldered. It appears to click and spring back correctly but cant meter it out as I dont know which wires do and should connect if correct. If no one else has a pre facelift version and if interested pm me. Pete
  23. Well hello folks and maybe goodbye for now too, i’m selling my 1973 2 door GT. 94,630 miles. It’s a good honest car, 2dr GT’s are getting hard to find now. It passed its mot on the 18th June 2020, i had an advisory on rear brake imbalance so fitted new cylinders both sides. Front callipers Rebuilt (by Bigg Red) with stainless steel pistons. HEL stainless braided flexi’s front & rear 2.0 pinto with electronic ignition (sierra dizzy) Twin choke 32/36 weber 4 branch GT exhaust manifold 5 speed Type 9 gearbox Atlas 3.75 diff. Gaz adjustable rebound dampeners front and rear (will come with original shocks) Polybushed almost everywhere front and rear ARBs (handles, stops and goes very well) Heated rear window Original interior (aftermarket gearknob) All gauges/interior light etc work Electric fan (via fused relay) operated with a genuine mk3 pfl dash switch to look standard. Halogen lamps. Fairly recent new carpet / belts no speaker holes in doorcards and rare factory blanking plate for radio Although it is wired to accept a modern iso plug stereo (All fused) Both doors, boot, ign and even the locking glove box work off one key, there’s also a spare key. Filler cap is locking and a nice original one but only one key for that. I know the boot spoiler and wheels might not be to everyones taste so I have a set of original sports steel wheels for it and (Dep on the price) a set of 1600E rostyles too. I also have a very good boot lid to go with it. It is a lovely car, its not perfect/concourse but it is very solid and does look great, it is very reliable. I had any structural work done by a classic specialist a few years back and it cost a small fortune. I later had some small bits at the back of the sills to inner arches done where i asked the restorer to put sill bungs back in so you can access down there to cavity wax and replace the bungs afterwards. All the factory jacking points are there and solid although i always use a trolley jack on the axles. The floor under the carpet is absolutely superb, see the last photo. If you need more pics (i have vids i can prob email too) just give me a shout. I am happy to negotiate on price/parts just let me know and hopefully we can settle on a price that suits. I really would prefer the car goes to a cortina enthusiast. I’ll prob get another, poss a backie or estate in a few years as i’ve never owned either of those but for now I fancy something modern while my son is quite young. £13750 ono
  24. Have I asked you this before, what part of Staffordshire are you, pm me, if you don't want everyone to know, or don't pm me if you don't want me to know, just this afternoon met a chap with a tidy Mk2 Granada Estate, said that the lock car fend people have a meet at the Plough at Endon, will be resuming again if Covid stays as it is.
