  1. As title, Mk3/4 brand new windscreen for sale. Green tint with blue sun strip. I'll add picture tonight. £160 collection only. Post Code EH51
  2. No, it's a private car collector from Belfast. It's going to a nice air conditioned garage along with all his other toys. It's getting picked up on the 23 August and transported back to Ireland in a curtain side car transporter. Looks like it's going to a good home.
  3. Magazine feature in 1999 Classic Ford, it was also featured on Retro Ford 2009 and a couple more pics.. Thanks for the comments guys.
  4. Having debated this with myself for a long time now, I have made the decision that the time is right for me to part with the Super Speed. Most of you on here will know the car and know that it is in fact a genuine Super Speed, one of only 2 known left. The car is the original SVO shell, albeit with panels replaced and the original engine, although this has been subject to a complete rebuild and modified. I have the verification letter from Super Speed and the SVO original SVO vin tag, although not on the car as it is a bit worse for wear. Specification is as follows: 2 Door GXL, with all the chrome trim removed,I still have most of the chrome in the garage. The fact that it is a 2 Door GXL is rare aswell. Completed Leather Bespoke Interior, Tombstone front seats, GXL back seat. RS 4 Spoke Steering Wheel 3304cc Swaymar Heads Metal Timimg Gear Oil Cooler Swirl Pot Fuel Pressure Valve Electric Fule Pump Electronic Ignition Kenlowe Fan Ceramic Coated Engine Manifolds Uprated Alternator New Battery 5 Speed Cosworth/Mustang T5 Gearbox, original 4 speed couldn't take the power. I do still have the Ford bellhousing in the garage for the 4 speed. Upgraded Brakes, i.e. Princess 4 pot calipers and 2.8i. vented discs Anti Roll Bars Front and back Uprated Springs Gas Shocks Brand New Fuel Tank Brand New Windscreen Bespoke Image Alloy Wheels 195x50x15 BF Goodrich tyres Full Stainless Exhaust, that makes a really nice sound Alpine Stereo MOT'D till April 2015 Taxed till March 2015 (Tax Exempt) Painted in Ford Vison Blue, VW Maritime Blue Stripes with Rainbow fleck. There are no stickers on this car even the Super Speed logos are painted on. The car has also been painted VW Maritime Blue on the floor, boot and engine bay. I have owned this car since June 2008 and it has never missed a beat, it is fast and it is loud. This car has been maintained no matter what the cost. Bad Points are: Clock doesn't work, that's it. This car can only be described as stunning and in excellent condition. So if you want to be a little bit different and have a Cortina that is even rarer than a Savage or a Lotus, please get in touch. It's not going to go cheap but it will be cheaper than an RS Escort or a MK1 Lotus Cortina. Please PM me through the forum if you are interested. Thanks
