What’s cooler than a Mk1 Cortina from the year England won the World Cup? An incredibly low, ‘South London look’ Mk1 Cortina from the year England won the World Cup, that’s what. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then read on.
We’re building this Cortina for a repeat Retropower customer and as such we can’t wait to get cracking. Details are scarce at the moment, largely as the owner has yet to decide on specifically what he wants from the car once its finished. What we can tell you is that it will be built along classic, South London Look principles, and that it will eventually be powered by a suitably fettled Ford Duratec.
Update: we’re now very much on the home straight as far as the Cortina is concerned, so much so that we’re aiming to have it up, running and returned to its owner within a month or so. Watch this space, and make sure to check out the images below documenting the rapid progress we’ve made since the December of 2019.
