1968 Mk2 Ford Cortina Deluxe (26)

This car was purchased from Ebay in 2006 and the blog entries show bringing the car back from being a bit rotten to being a clean, fun driving car back on the road in 2016. 

The Beginning

29 June 2011 1968 Mk2 Ford Cortina Deluxe 657

Well, you can blame this one on Ebay!! or is it just my passion for Mk2 Cortinas.....leave that up to you. It started with me looking on Ebay for some decent doors (honest). I came across this Mk2 and it looked OK so I emailed the owner for some pictures of the doors. They came back looking spot on so my thoughts went to bidding for this car and swapping them on to my V8 Cortina. Repair the V8 doors and use them on the GT and maybe do some track days, hillclimbs and also use it on the weekends. The plot thickens!! the Cortina was successfully purchased and these pages will show a build diary of this new project.

To start with, here are four of the Mk2 Cortina pictures taken from the listing pages of Ebay.
