1963 Ford Cortina Mk 1 Limousine

Wedding Car Hire

Simply a one off!. This Mk I Cortina is the ultimate Mk I Cortina. The previous owner commissioned this car back in 2009, asking a renowned West Midlands car restorer to produce the ultimate Mk1 Cortina.

A rust-free Mk1 Cortina shell was procured and two feet added to its wheelbase. Two extra doors were added and specially made glass was fitted providing a car with six proper doors and fully-opening windows.

The interior makes use of Mk2 1600E Cortina seating, retrimmed, along with the headlining and carpets, by Intertrim and bespoke door panels by Aldridge Trimming. The old pre-Crossflow engine has been replaced by a Ford 2.8 litre V6 Cologne engine and automatic gearbox providing enough power to give the car a respectable turn of speed. The wheels are American Chrome wire wheels with knock-on spinners.

Bought by The Private Collection in October 2017 this Mk I Cortina is regularly a firm favourite on wedding and special event days.
