‘Most own­ers pre­fer the sim­pler mods’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - CRAIG WALKER CORTINA MKI-V OWN­ERS’ CLUB

Craig, the club’s tech­ni­cal of­fi­cer, says: ‘Not many own­ers go to ex­treme lengths when mod­i­fy­ing their Corti­nas, although we do have mem­bers with V8s in­stalled and a cou­ple of have con­verted their cars to four-wheel drive. Most own­ers pre­fer to go for a five-speed gear­box or im­proved brakes. Be­cause Ford didn’t mar­ket a sporty Cortina MkIV or MkV, own­ers are less in­clined to soup them up – I’d guess that at least half of the cars left are pretty much com­pletely stan­dard.’
