    Reluctantly I'm selling my Dad's Mk4 1600L Estate, 56.,650 miles. It needs a home where it can be used and enjoyed. First reg December 1978, my father bought it in March 1981 with about 15,000 miles. He owned it until he died in 1995, and I inherited it shortly afterwards. It was on the road until about 2005 as my son and I intended to restore it. The usual factors intervened and the project was shelved until about 2013-4. I decided to have it professionally restored and BSC members recommended Steve Taylor. He did the work, stripping back to bare shell, repairing all rust etc. and refurbishing mechanicals as required. I had the seats re-trimmed and fitted new carpet in floor and load compartment. The car looks beautiful and drives nicely. I have submitted an ad to ClassicCarsforSale website, and you can see it there or contact me for fuller details. Loads of history from original used car sales invoice, MOT's, bills, original user handbook. Hundreds of photos of restoration project available on a CD for the lucky buyer. Now tax exempt

    Thank you 🙂 I should have mentioned before, the reel is mounted up under the metal shelf, passes through a plastic guide and up and over the rear seat. You can just about see it in the final photo. The back rest of the seat is packed forward very slightly to give a little space for the belt to slide through. In all honesty it makes the belt slightly slow to retract (kinda period!) but operates fine the way it's meant to. I could possibly pack it forward a touch more to improve it. The whole idea for me was that it could all be returned to standard easily if need be and that I could actually take the kids out in it relatively safely.

    As proven on the sunroof question, your knowledge of Cortina's is second to none and anyone from the outside looking in, you are always trying to help people, so this is a little bit out of order and someone else needs to wind there neck in, AND IT'S NOT YOU.

    I will take more photos on Friday showing the rear of the chassis. The cab has been resprayed in an off white and spare paint comes with it to paint the tub but I was going to probably do it in Venetian Red to match my RS2000 xpack. I was going to fit a similar body kit with xpack alloys.
