Thinking of Selling a Number of Cortinas

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all staying safe and well.

I am thinking of some changes in my life and that will need to involve parting with a few things.

Before I ask I know not easy to answer what something may or may not be worth as all very subjective and one of opinions, but I am happy to listen to others thoughts.

So I have a number of Cortinas and will list what am considering parting with.

 

1. A 1963 Lotus Cortina Crayford Convertible (Genuine as confirmed by the Register) that has been in storage for a while and will need various work due to this.

2. A 1967 Cortina Lotus Crayford Convertible (Genuine) again been in storage a number of years needing various work.

3. A 1970 Cortina 1600E Mexico 1970 World Cup Players Car (P Osgood) again been in storage, needing light recommissioning.

4. A 1977 Cortina Mk4 2.0 S again has been in storage for a number of years.

5. A 1978 Cortina Mk4 2.3 S again has been in storage for a number of years.

 

I know difficult to place values on from a brief description, but any thoughts as say will be welcome.

Kind regards in advance of any replies.

I'm don't think I could value them. But If I was in your possition, I would put them to auction , with somone like Mathewsons  Classic Car Auctions in North Yorkshire – Mathewsons – Classic Car Auctions in North Yorkshire

 

They would get the market value, good or bad.

And that included PO one.

Is this the TJH reg car that was owned for years by a pub landlord and taken off road after a minor collision. It’s thought to be a customer converted Crayford and not done when new?

I feel the opportunity of a long time (lifetime) knocking here. Without seeing the cars a blind guess is all I could offer and somehow, I don't think that's the right thing to do. :wine:
