1982 Ford Cortina 2000 Ghia

Aquired 4th June 2003

This is how she looked when I first bought her. She had the odd blemish but in general was still very tidy.

This wais my second Cortina, my previous one being another Mk5 but a 1.6L Estate. This new car was in much better condition having been lovingly looked after by the same owner for almost twenty years. It has spent much of it's life in a garrage away from the elements and I suspect it used to wear seat covers as despite the 104000 miles it has under it's belt the interior is imaculate. There isn't even any wear on the drivers seat bolsters!

Needless to say I was rather chuffed with my purchase, it's just a pity I didn't give it a good clean and treat the paint to some polish to seal it. Now it's covered in blisters!
