This is one of many illustrated classic car guides I've created for the community. I hope you enjoy it. If you wish to find out more about the classic Ford Executive car art featured in this guide please click here.
The Ford Corsair started life in 1964 and slotted into the Ford range between the established Cortina and Zephyr models. Using many parts common to the Cortina, the early Consul Corsairs as they were known, used the 1500cc Cortina engine. Later in 1965 Ford switched to 1700cc and 2-litre V4 units. The 2000E began life in 1967 and reflected Ford policy to have an "executive" model in all its ranges. The 2000E was "de-chromed" compared with standard Corsairs and featured a vinyl roof.
