Ford 1956-89 - 2018 Market Review
Ford Anglia

Australians have for decades loved their small and medium-sized Fords. Thousands were sold new in this country, so where did they all go? Most of the Mark1 [pre-1967] Cortinas seen recently needed work and the asking prices reflected their condition.

Mark1 and 2 GTs weren’t common either but at least the money being sought is pretty right. The cars to watch [if you aren’t already] are Mark1 Escorts and especially the sporty versions.

Genuine Twin-Cams are almost never seen and should bring $60-80,000. Equally rare are genuine 1300GTs and even fakes can reach $25,000.

Great also to see a few finned Zephyr Mark2s and 3s in the market at confident prices.

Cortina Mark 1 $6890 [5]

Cortina Mark 2 $12,455 [14]

Cortina GT Mark 1 $26,250 [5]

Cortina GT Mark 2 $25,300 [5]

Escort Mark 1 $16,365 [13]

Capri V6 GT $36,200 [4]

Zephyr 1962-64 $22,785 [7]
