The Beginning

04 July 2011 The Begining 2052

I will briefly give the history and development of the car and pictures throughout the build up. My objective is to have a Mk2 Ford Cortina which will look externally as close as possible to original except wheels and a bit of the engine peeping out of the bonnet. It will have a Jaguar IRS, Cortina Mk4/5 IFS, slightly modified Mopar 318 cubic inch - 5.2 litre V8 engine estimating around 300+ bhp, 3"x2" box section chassis, alloy wheels, painted yellow underneath together with suspension, Body to be painted two tone, bottom part yellow and top blue. This car will be build with new parts only where necessary as a tight budget is all that is available - sob sob. That's about it in a nutshell - will it happen? who knows - scroll down, enjoy and find out.
