5k: British Bulldog: 1968 Ford Cortina GT

The second generation Ford Cortina was launched in 1966 with the marketing slogan "The New Cortina is more Cortina" and it included the same classic Cortina formula with an overhead valve "Kent" inline-4 up front and rear wheel drive.  The 1967 Cortina was the most popular car sold in Britian in that model year, an not insignificant feat for Ford in the 60s.  Find this 1968 Ford Cortina GT for sale in McKinleyville, CA currently bidding near $2.5k reserve not met or for $5,500 Buy it Now with a few hours to go.

This Cortina looks good with a relatively new paint job and the seller claims the car is in good mechanical shape.  The Cortina is powered by a 1.5 liter inline-4 cylinder OHV engine that puts out something around 58 horsepower into a 4-speed manual gearbox. The only issues are that the interior needs some help, and the listing is somewhat lacking in details.
