Rebuilt 1500GT Engine

Recommended Posts

Offers are invited for a complete 1500GT (pre-crossflow) engine, which was rebuilt in 2004 for use in my Ford 100e, but a change of plan meant that although it was run for around half an hour, it was never driven. Since then, it has been dry stored, and I have recently removed the head for examination.


The specification:-

Block - Cortina mk1 1500. Linered and bored +0.060 by Burton Performance

Pistons - AE ref 18400V1 +0.060

Head - Early Cortina 1500GT, crack tested and converted for unleaded, with hardened exhaust valve seats and bronze guides, by Burton Performance.

Crankshaft and connecting rods - Cortina 1500. Main and big end bearings standard size. Fitted with new HD shells.

Camshaft and followers - New 1600GT (Kent Cams P103/P104 - Formula Ford spec)

Oil Pump - Standard Cortina, fully checked

Flywheel - 105e Anglia (std)

Distributor - Lotus Cortina (new)

Carburettor/Inlet Manifold - Std Cortina 1500GT, fully overhauled. K&N filter.

Exhaust Manifold - 1500GT modified to fit Ford 100e


In total, the parts and machining cost me around £1,300 in 2004.

Cash on collection please from north Herts (SG8).

A 5% donation of whatever I get will be made to BSC.

Hi Stuart, To do the same today would cost in excess of £2k, so I’d be looking around £1,000.
