10k DT Flash: 1965 Ford Cortina

The Ford Cortina Mk 1 was a lightweight (1700 lbs) sedan built by Ford in the United Kingdom from 1962-1966.  This 1965 Ford Cortina GT is for sale on ebay, currently bidding at $9,000 reserve-not-met with 3 days to go and is located in Santa Barbara, CA.  It is powered by a 1.5 liter inline 4 cylinder engine that has been hopped up to put out 84 horsepower and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission powering the rear wheels.  The Ford Cortina is one of our favorite 60s hipster two-door sedans and this particular example looks to be in great shape inside and out.

  1. Despite not being a hipster, and not loving the white color, I'd rock this. Something very cool about even the non-Lotus Cortinas. By the way, handling on this particular example wouldn't even approach Taurus SHO levels, and miles from any Z car.
