Ford 1956-89

British Fords at one point ruled the local Medium Car market so there are plenty of Cortinas, Anglias and early Escorts still available. That assessment excludes Twin-Cam Escorts which are very scarce and now worth $50,000+.

Early Ford Capris aren’t common either but prices for V6 versions remain stable at around $40,000. Mark 1 and 2 Cortinas are edging towards $20,000, with early GTs already beyond that figure.

Mark 3 Zephyrs didn’t sell here in big numbers, however with their finned shape and suitability for V8 conversions they are now keenly sought and more expensive than earlier versions.
