1974 Ford Cortina 1.6 MK3 Pickup or Bakkie as they are known in South Africa. Genuine Ford factory built pick up and not a conversion. This is a RHD import from South Africa with all tax and duty paid. Nova declaration has been done and we are happy to complete all the registration paperwork for the new owner to get it UK registered.
Body - Genuine factory built pickup. Good inner wings, doors, sills arches. Pretty solid throughout. Will need minor repair on rear floor. Evidence of a previous minor bump on osf wing and load bed floor has had a few patches over the years. Paint is a bit worn as this was a working vehicle and would need redone. Lower front panel is a bit battered and bruised.
Mechanics - 1600 crossflow and 4 speed box. Starts runs and drives. Engine sounds decent. Gearbox, clutch and brakes all good as vehicle was still being used in South Africa. Carb may need adjusted due to the different climate.
Interior - Reasonably tidy. No rips or tears in seats. Aftermarket door cards. Headlining is good and original. One slight crack in dashtop.
Wheels- Ford steels not sure what off originally
These pickups are very rare and there are probably only about 10 in this country. Good basis for a project as its a solid old thing , but a bit scruffy as it was a workhorse.
