Description

Launched in September 1962, and until a modest facelift in 1964, it was branded as the Consul Cortina before simply being sold as the Cortina. The car changed the face of British motoring – a risk Ford took but which paid off as in 1963 the Cortina became the market leader, a trend it kept up for the next two decades. It became one of the best selling cars of all times and its design was updated every 4/6 years. Aimed initially at buyers of the Morris Oxford and Vauxhall Victor.

It was available with a range of engine options, including four-cylinder units. Initially, it came with a 1.2-liter engine producing around 47 horsepower. Later, a more powerful 1.5-liter engine with approximately 59 horsepower was introduced. There were also higher-performance versions like the Cortina GT, which had a 1.5-liter engine producing 78 horsepower.

It is shown here in classic cream and green stripes in 1:76 (00) scale.
