Per­haps the Taunus TC/Mk3 Cortina didn’t achieve global dom­i­na­tion in an era when there was no glob­al­i­sa­tion as we know it now (Taunus TC fea­ture, Septem­ber 2018 is­sue), but it was quite suc­cess­ful, as it be­came the best-sell­ing car in Bri­tain for al­most a decade, it was in the top five best sell­ers in Ger­many, the Nether­lands, Bel­gium, South Africa, New Zealand and Ar­gentina. It was also a good seller in Italy, France, the Scan­di­na­vian coun­tries, Aus­tralia, Tai­wan, Turkey and South Ko­rea — so it was far from a fail­ure. In fact, it had a bet­ter ca­reer than its suc­ces­sors, the Sierra/ Sap­phire and Mon­deo. I know there are few Corti­nas run­ning in the UK nowa­days, but it’s still very present on roads all round Ar­gentina and Turkey. For me, it’s one of the best cars ever de­signed and sold by Ford. I’m on my fifth Taunus now! Adri­ana Mascheroni Gar­zon Ar­gentina
