Five styled steel wheels with 13 x 4.5in rims are factory original with all manufacturer stampings clearly defined and dealer optional chrome embellishers have been fitted. Four virtually unused Goodyear Duragrip 165/80 R13 tyres have masses of tread and the spare wheel remains shod in the original the original Dunlop SP4 rubber.

Supplied new by Ford Main Dealer, A.E. Chatfield Ltd of Stoke on Trent, and first registered on 23rd April 1980, this stunning Ford Cortina has covered just 29,977 miles from new. The first and second registered keepers were husband and wife, Mr and Mrs Windsor, with ownership transferring to Mrs Windsor upon her husbands passing in 1991 and remaining in her ownership until 2014. The third keeper, Mr David Eastwood, an avid Cortina fan and Area Representative for the Ford Cortina Owners Club heard about the car and took ownership in order to ensure its safe future. This low mileage delight sat proudly aside his Mk5 2.3 Ghia and Mk3 Saloon, and you can click here to see Mr Eastwoods enthusiasm for the marque. KGF Classic Cars have sold this car both in 2014 and again in 2016, and are delighted to see it again ready to find the next appreciative custodian.

A large collection of MOT certificates in the history file enable the reader to fully track the mileage and a collection of previous maintenance invoices are present including a full service in 2018 with less than 350 miles covered since. All original handbooks, operating guides and the Ford service booklet remain with the car.
