New life at the mu­seum

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The Lake­land Mo­tor Mu­seum has wel­comed a new car – a 1982 Ford Cortina Ghia 2.3 V6 im­ported from Bel­gium to Bar­row-in-Fur­ness. The lux­ury-spec Cortina was do­nated to the Ulver­ston mu­seum by Bar­row pen­sioner, Win Don­ald­son, the widow of its for­mer owner Andy, who owned it for 34 years, un­til he passed away last year. Chris Lowe, Man­ager of the Lake­land Mo­tor Mu­seum, says: ‘ The Ford Cortina is one of those cars peo­ple al­ways re­mem­ber from the 1970s and 80s. It’s an­other great piece of mo­tor­ing nos­tal­gia for the Mu­seum.’

Cortina is now a his­tor­i­cal ex­hibit.
