FORD Cortina Mk III
A new Cortina for a new decade... and the MkIII was ideal for the more flamboyant and funky era that was the Seventies. The ‘Coke bottle’ styling had overtones of American Fords and there was a mass of different options; X, XL, GT or GXL anyone? And would Sir like that with an 1100, 1300, 1600 or 2000 engine in his two-door or four-door saloon or estate? In all, there were 35 variants of Cortina at its launch. Whilst its predecessor had been a MkI makeover, the MkIII was completely fresh, with new coil and wishbone suspension.
