Cortina Mk2 1966 - 70
This is one of many mini illustrated classic car guides I've uploaded for the community. I hope you enjoy it and if you would like to find out more about the classic Ford Cortina car art featured in this guide please click here.
October 1966 gave first sight of the new Cortina. It offered crosp, clean almost European lines and a more powerful 1300cc engine complementing the 1500cc unit. Crossflow engines were available from August 1967. New safety features were strongly promoted - including door handles and switches that were designed to 'break-away' in an accident, child-proof locks on rear doors and dished steering wheels. Apart from the charismatic Lotus Cortina which was discontinued in 1970, the M II range will probably be best remembered for one particular model - the 1600E.
