October 1970 saw the introduction of Ford's new range of Cortinas. The new Cortinas replaced the MkII and incorporated new "Coke bottle" styling, so named because of the distinctive high rear waistline curve. The Cortina MkIII quickly became one of the most significant family models of the 1970s. Produced in a total of 35 basic variants, the top of the tree, and the replacement for the much loved 1600E Mk2 Cortina was the 2000E. It featured twin-choke Weber carburation and many luxury fittings associated with the "E" such as wooden facia and door cappings, deep pile carpeting, which carried on up the door base and luxury velour seating. The 2000E was also available as an Estate version, which made for an extremely practical luxury car.
