My first cortina!

Recommended Posts

After months furiously searching for a MK3 estate in good nick... and a few disappointments... todayI picked up my first cortina!

 

Granted she's not the MK3 I was pining after... but I'm really happy with her.

 

(now time for the million obvious questions)

Bought from Hastings.

 

Are you still based that way.

New home in Brighton so not far at all... I'll have to dig around for the info on here.

 

It's going to be my daily so im considering an electronic ignition for reliability... any suggestions?

 

I also have a set of the original "dartboard" wheels but haven't decided what I'm sticking with yet (I kinda like the slot mags)

I had Accuspark on my mk5, was cheep and cheerful but worked only for a few years.......I'm back to points.

I think a standard Sierra set-up would be your best bet?

Steve Wright on Radio 2 quote, " Never trust a guy that uses a coathanger for an aerial ".

Nice car though!

That's not far at all. A trip to the ace cafe in may would do it good. Did you buy all the bits with the car too.

The coat hangar aerial is the best bit!... funnily enough I'm actually spending far too much on a stealth Bluetooth sound system... so I can modernise a little while keeping the coat hanger.

 

Why is it not fair?... we're you also bidding on it?

 

I got the slot mags (obviously) and all the workshop manuals etc.

Chris (the seller) still has the nos indicators and granada chin spoiler if you were after them... he said he was going to pop them on eBay.
