X Registration Ford Cortina 3.0 XR6. This is a factory built South African model with the 3.0 V6 Essex engine. Its been in the uk now for 18 months and is fully UK registered, has 9 months MOT and is ready to drive away. I recently drove this 100 miles home and it drove spot on.
Body - Never been welded and solid from front to back. Very strong underneath. Underbonnet area is very clean and original. Car looks to be wearing most of its original paint. It has picked up a few minor marks here and there as you would expect. Panel are all very good. There is a small rust bubble on the drivers screen pillar about the size of your thumbnail and a tidy bit just at the bottom of the screen rubber but otherwise its rock solid and one of the best i have seen structurally. The Yellow / black colour scheme is how it would have came from the factory. Also in the boot is painted black. Again thats how it left the factory its not a cover up job. XR6 front and rear spoilers
Mechanics - Good strong 3.0 Essex engine with factory 4 speed box. Starts runs and drives well. Carb has recently been rebuilt. When its cold it has a little flatspot but when its heated up its spot on. The XR6 had tramp bars and a panhard rod set up as standard so it feels much tighter at the back. Fuel guage does not appear to be working butr i will try and get a look at that in the next few days.
Interior - Standard XR6 seats. Rear seat, headlining, door cards are all ok. Front driver seat has a bit of wear on the bolster - see pics.All guages work apart from fuel but will look at that. Speedo has been converted to mph.
Wheels - Standard deep dish steels with 175 70 13 tyres.
This is a very rare car and there are only a handful in this country. Due to prices rising and a poor exchange rate i dont see many more of these making it out of South africa in the near future. Please feel free to come and view the car. I have a ramp so you can fully inspect it. Delivery can also be arranged if required. Please ask for a quote.
