Ford Cortina Pre-Airflow 1963

Very solid vehicle that requires some love after standing still for many years.



I purchased this vehicle around four months ago, now I finally have some time to list it for sale.

Prior to me purchasing it, it had been standing for may years collecting dust. Last recorded inspection (MOT/TUV) was in 1999.

Bodywork is very straight with nice panel gaps, chrome work is also quite good for its age.

It has had a respray at some stage, internal areas all look to be original paint. Paint finish isn’t the best.

Front valance is a bit beaten and looks to have had some previous repairs, also the slam panel on the right-hand side has a split through it.

Front suspension top struts have had the usual repairs, rest of the engine bay looks nice and original.

There is a scratch down the drivers side, not deep but fairly long.



Interior is complete and in very good condition for its age, very rare to see the rear-view mirror and light still intact.

I removed the drivers seat cover to have a look at the condition of the original seat, it has had some stitching repair but is in good order. This is normally the worst worn seat, so I imagine that the rest are also good. I have not removed the rest of the seat covers to check though, so no guarantees.

When I lifted the floor mats to check the condition of the floors, I found news paper dated 1980 and proves that noting has been done to this car recently. The floors are in nice original condition.




Mechanically it will need checking over and a good service.

It starts and drives but has not been used for many years, one of the front brake cylinders is leaking from what I can tell.



Very solid and rust free.

It is covered in thick underlay so quite hard to check originality, I couldn’t see any previous repairs though. The underlay is peeling off in many places and is revealing nice original metal. There are areas that have been painted grey and could be mistaken for repairs, that is not the case though and I imagine that this was only done for protection after the underlay peeled off.

I have a video highlighting some of this.




Included is:

·      Original registration book with stamped inspections.

·      Registration Certificate.

·      User manual (Finnish).

·      Original Ford garage folder.




Here you have an early Pre-Airflow Cortina that is in nice original condition, not perfect but a great survivor.

With a little tender loving care, there will be many happy smiles ahead for the new owner.

I have many detailed photos that can be supplied upon request.
