Genuine Mk3 Cortina Super Speed

Recommended Posts

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


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.

Mitch that's why I'm holding on now, something always comes up and sods law it's when you are not in a good financial position. My "Cortina to be dosh" is well hidden from Mrs CorNada and it's growing all the time.
