This was the MKII Ford Cortina 1500GT that I swapped the MkI Cortina for. I had had an accident with my 2nd car, and although the bodywork had to be written off, all the modifications to the mechanics were ok, so I transferred everything across from one car to the other. This photo was after all the work was finished and the car was being used in rallies.
This is the original stage 1 1500GT engine from car No.2, with twin side draught Weber DCOE40’s just visible to the eye, being the pre-crossflow engine they are on the opposite side to the more conventional Ford competition engines.
This photo was taken during a rally on a very muddy off-road section.
