  1. That looks lovely, Crystal Green is a really nice colour too. More pictures please.
  2. I think the Mk4 with the Aston is the Midnight blue L recently sold by ACA? I watched it last night for the first time in years, apart from the bit where they were driving on each other’s laps it was quite good, Paddy McGuiness is irritating but I managed to watch it to the end and there was no mindless vandalism so hopefully it is improving. The Jupiter Red Cortina GL was beautiful and my reason for watching.
  3. That is stunning, a great colour and great car. Has it got vinyl seats? They do not look like diamond fabric? Also 1.3 is unbecoming of a GL. A beautiful car though nonetheless.

    Looks fantastic, the latest picture with proper wheels on is a huge improvement and look great. A really stunning car, it looks like it is now ready for you to enjoy all the hard work that has gone into it, I would also spend hours just looking at it and sitting in it if it were mine.
  5. Adrian Flux and Performance direct.I would recommend Performance direct as being the best to deal with.
  6. I have two mk4 2.0 Cortina’s and a 2.8 Granada all on separate 4000 mile policies at around £90 each. None ask if I am in a car club member any longer. I left the Cortina club around 3 years ago after being a member almost from the beginning due to various issues with the club.
  7. They were offered as extra cost options on S and Ghia models, they become standard fitment on Ghia’s with the introduction of the mk5.
  8. Thank you 👍 I have not seen that advert before. It had the sports wheels fitted when I bought it and still has, no alloys came with it but I have just bought some new old stock ones. Unfortunately the tow bar was also missing. The larger sticker in the rear side window was also missing but otherwise not much has changed. It had the AA and RAC badges on when I bought it, I must get round to removing them.
  9. Fantastic progress in a very short time, looking forward to the next update.
  10. Same here, I have too many cars but couldn’t bear to see them destroyed.
  11. Looking good Mark, it would be good to go out for a run in the cars when lockdown eventually ends.
  12. Great work 👍, it is getting very close now. What colour are you going to paint it?
  13. Fair comment, if it does a good job it is a useful addition. I like your car and dogs🙂. You are correct it would be boring if we were all the same, I hope I did not cause any offence.
  14. I agree with Kevin, these look dreadful, can’t blame you for making a few quid it is astonishing how people pay big money for tat! I bought a Cortina with one on in 1994 and took it off straight away, sold it for £10, I also sold a rear Louvre off the same car for £10 it is unbelievable what these sell for now, I was happy to make a few quid and improve the appearance of my car at the same time. I bought the car from Scotland, both cars I collected from Scotland were covered in tat, I am glad yours are not the same Kevin😉
  15. Great work, it will be fantastic when finished.
  16. Hi Steve, yes I have three ‘82 model V6 Ghia’s and one was my daily when I joined BuysellCortina. I took it on the 2002 Cortina’s to Cortina trip also LeMans and the Classic Ford trip to Holland in the same year, we also took it to Gibraltar in 2004, a 4000 mile round trip. V6’s are great but I think the 2.0 is the best engine in the Cortina. I currently have two 2.0 mk4’s and a 2.8 mk2 Granada roadworthy as they are all tax free but the mk5 will be back on the road in a couple of years when/if it becomes tax free. I would honestly prefer your car to a 911 Porsche, it is a great car and if I could have only one car then it would be an ‘82 model Ghia in Champagne Gold.
  17. That is a beautiful car in the best colour, a real credit to you especially knowing what it looked like when you bought it.
  18. Great progress, it is good to look back at where you started from, fantastic work.
  19. Great work on the door. The wing looks a good buy. Great progress 👍
  20. Nice work. This is a great update, I really like estates, you are doing a great job.
  21. Looking good and a lot more solid now. Will you be keeping it Royal blue?
  22. I have it Mark, remind me to email it to you. The car is coming together well, great to see the progress. Keep up the great work.
  23. Yes we still have it along with all the others. I love them too much to get rid of them 😀
  24. Hi Hans, we took the mk4 Roman Bronze Ghia estate in the report you attached, we did talk with you there, it is hard to believe it was 8 years ago, hopefully we can go again in 2022.
  25. The mk2 estate you took to Cortina in 2012 was stunning, the one in the advert looks no better than yours.
