MOST AN­TIC­I­PATED CAR

Jayne Gil­mour’s Mk3 Cortina Fea­tured: Sum­mer 2016

Classic Ford - - CLASSIC FORD AWARDS -

There’s noth­ing like putting your own twist on a clas­sic theme. In­spired by the Lon­donTo Syd­ney marathons of the ’70s, Jayne set out to cre­ate her own trib­ute to the cars that com­peted, based on a two-door Mk3 Cortina that she plans to use for blasts across the flat­lands of main­land Europe.The bodyshell has been re­stored, and suit­ably caged, and there are cur­rently three power units to choose from: 2-litre Pinto on a sin­gle sid­e­draught, su­per­charged Pinto and the five-cylin­derVolvo unit from the Fo­cus ST. But our favourite part of the build is the planned liv­ery — the yel­low and red of Ko­dak’s clas­sic Ko­dachrome cam­era film of the same era.We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing it hit the au­to­bahn.
