Light and simple classic

While we all tend to get distracted by the muscle car end of the classic market, and the stratospheric prices being paid, there is some solid value out there when it comes to light cars.

Ford's Cortina managed to live up to the company's ambitions, by becoming Britain's top-selling car the year this example was built.

Larger and more roomy than a MkI, the MkII was still a light and nimble peice of kit. A range of engines was used in this body shape - which came as two and four-doors versions.

This one is running a 1600 Kent (or Crossflow) four, mated to a four-speed manual, which is a pretty good spec to have.

Dressed up as a GT, it should be a very simple and easy classic to live with.

The NSW-based owner is asking $19,000 and claims it's in good condition. However no RWC is offered.

These cars are well-supported by owner associations - search for small Ford clubs.
