MRS FISH FROM CUMBRIA WAS THE OWNER OF A 1951 FORD ZEPHYR AND IN 1962 SHE WAS HAVING IT SERVICED BY HER LOCAL FORD DEALER BARTON TOWNLEY LANCASTER AND AFTER SEEING THE ADVERTISMENT OF THE ALL NEW FORD CONSUL CORTINA SHE PRE ORDERED THE CAR IN OCTOBER DUE FOR DELIVERY BEFORE CHRISTMAS 1962!! - THIS CONSUL CORTINA WAS FINALLY FINISHED ON 14/12/1962 (CONFIRMED BY ORIGINAL FORD PAPER TAGS STILL ATTACHED TO THE CAR!!) AND WAS DELIVERED TO BARTON TOWNLEY FORD IN DECEMBER 1962 BEING REGISTERED & COLLECTED NEW ON WEDNESDAY 07/01/1963 AT 3PM (ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE PRESENT!!!)



MRS FISH USED THE CAR SPARINGLEY TRAVELLING AROUND LOCAL VILLAGES IN CUMBRIA AND WAS SOLEY SERVICED BY THE SUPPLYING FOR DEALER (BARTON TOWNLEY) UP UNTIL JULY 1968 (ORIGINAL SERVICE BOOK FULLY STAMPED) AND THE CAR WAS USED UP UNTIL 1969 WHEN SHE DECIDED TO STOP DRIVING DUE TO HER AGEING YEARS BUT SHE REFUSED TO SELL THE CORTINA AND THE CAR WAS PARKED IN HER DRY WOODEN GARAGE UNDER BLANKETS WHERE IT REMAINED FOR APPROX 15 YEARS UNDISTRUBED UNTIL HER DEATH IN 1983 WHEN HER BROTHER INHERITED HER ESTATE AND THE CAR!! - IT WAS REMOVED FROM THE GARAGE AND TAKEN TO A LOCAL GARAGE IN THE VILLAGE WHERE IT WAS MOT'D AT 15,380 MILES ON 09/06/1983 AND USED FOR A FEW HUNDRED MILES BY HER BROTHER BEFORE BEING PARKED IN A BARN BEFORE WINTER 1983 ON HIS FARM COVERED UP AGAIN UNDER BLANKETS AND UNSEEN FOR ANOTHER 30 YEARS UP UNTIL 2013!!



IN LATE 2013 AFTER 30 YEARS OF FURTHER STORAGE IN A PASSING CONVERSATION ABOUT THE CORTINA AT THE BUTCHERS BETWEEN THE ORIGINAL ELDERLEY OWNERS BROTHER AND A LOCAL CHAP KEN (WHO REMBERED THE CORTINA NEW IN 1963) AND TO HIS SURPRISE THE FARMER CONFIRMED HE STILL HAD THE CAR AND THAT HE HAD NEVER LIFTED THE COVERS OFF SINCE HE PARKED IT UP IN 1983!! - DUE TO HIS AGE AND BUILDING WORKS SOMETHING NEEDED TO BE DONE WITH IT!!



KEN AGREED TO PURCHASE THE CAR AND IN AUGUST 2013 HE WENT TO THE BARN AND REMOVED THE COVERS TO FIND AN INCREDIBLE CORTINA JUST AS HE REMBERED IT IN THE 1960'S - TOTALLY UNTOUCHED AND STILL SITTING ON ITS ORIGINAL FLAT CROSS PLY TYRES!! - IT WAS TAKEN JUST 2 MILES FROM THE BARN IT HAD BEEN STOOD IN TO KEN'S GARAGE AND HE REALISED JUST WHAT HE HAD FOUND!!!


POSSIBLY THE MOST ORIGINAL/UNTOUCHED EARLY CORTINA IN EXISTANCE (A TRUE ''TIMEWARP '' BARN FIND) WHICH HAD NEVER BEEN TOUCHED,PAINTED OR MESSED WITH AND RETAINED ALL ORIGINAL FEATURES AND BODY PANELS AND HAD NEVER BEEN WELDED AND STILL RETAINED THE FACTORY APPLIED GREY PAINT TO THE UNDERSIDE AFTER CLEANING THE FACTORY FORD GREASE (WE HAVE PICTURES CONFIRMING THIS!!)


IN 2014/2015 KEN DECIDED TO CAREFULLY RECOMMISSION THE CAR AND START THE CAR AFTER ITS LONG SLEEP! - THIS WORK INCLUDED NEW FLUIDS,BRAKES,TYRES,BRAKE LINES,ANCILLARIES & WAX OIL ETC ETC WITH A FRESH COAT OF EXTERIOR PAINT IN WINDSOR GREY AS THE ORIGINAL PAINT HAD FADED IN PLACES AND SPOILED THE CAR!!


** THIS CORTINA HAS COVERED A WARRANTED 16,348 MILES FROM NEW (REPEAT JUST SIXTEEN THOUSAND MILES FROM NEW!!) **


THE CAR WAS THEN PARKED UP UNDER COVER UNUSED UNTIL WE HAD BEEN TOLD ABOUT THE CAR BY A GOOD FRIEND IN 2016 AND AFTER MEETING KEN AND FAMILY THEY AGREED TO SELL THE CAR TO US AS HE WANTED THE CAR TO BE USED AND ENJOYED AS INTENDED BY AN ENTHUSIAST AND HAS FORMED PART OF OUR OWN CLASSIC FORD COLLECTION SINCE AND ONLY OFFERED FOR SALE DUE TO LACK OF USE!!!


THIS CONSUL CORTINA IS A VERY VERY SPECIAL CORTINA INDEED THAT WAS BUILT IN 1962 AT DAGENHAM AND MUST BE ONE OF THE FINEST EARLIEST UNMOLESTED/UNRESTORED SURVIVING EXAMPLES IN EXISTANCE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!! - THIS CAR HAS ALL THE UNIQUE EARLY RELEASE/PRE PRODUCTION FEATURES ETC!!!


THIS UNIQUE ''TIMEWARP'' CONSUL CORTINA STILL RETAINS ALL ITS ORIGINAL FORD PAPER BUILD TAGS FROM 1962 TO THE ENGINE BAY,DASHBOARD AND BOOT AREA AND EVEN THE ORIGINAL TRIPLEX STICKER TO THE WIND SCREEN ALONG WITH UNUSED ORIGINAL TOOLKIT AND BAG (WE HAVE BEEN OFFERED £550 FOR THE TOOLKIT ALONE BUT WE WOULD NOT SPLIT FROM THE CAR!!)

** THE ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE CONFIRMS THAT THE FACTORY OPTIONS ON THIS CAR ARE EXTERIOR WING MIRRORS AND HEATER **


THE PICTURES REALLY DO NOT DO THIS CAR ANY JUSTICE IT REALLY NEEDS TO BE SEEN TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED (THIS IS NOT A CONCOURS REBUILT CAR BUT IS AN ORIGINAL 55 YEAR OLD UNRESTORED CONSUL CORTINA WITH A CHARMING PATINA THAT YOU CANNOT REPLICATE AND IS A SURE FIRE CROWD PULLER AND A BEAUTIFUL CORTINA THAT WOULD BE THE PRIDE OF ANY BODYS COLLECTION OR SHOW FIELD!!!



THIS CORTINA CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A UNIQUE ULTRA ULTRA RARE EARLY ''TIMEWARP'' EXAMPLE THAT HAS NEVER BEEN WELDED OR HAD A REPLACEMENT BODY PANEL OR SILL (WHICH IS UNHEARD OF FOR A CORTINA!!)



THIS CORTINA STARTS FIRST TURN OF THE KEY AND IS AS QUIET AS A MOUSE AND DRIVES LIKE A SEWING MACHINE AND CREATES A LOT OF ATTENTION AND ADMIRING GLANCES!!!



THE EXTERIOR OF THIS CORTINA IS IN LOVELY CONDITION AND PRESENTS VERY WELL INDEED AS CAN BE SEEN FROM THE PICTURES (THE GRILLE,LIGHT SURRONDS ARE LIKE NEW AND STILL RETAINS EARLY BUMPERS (BUMPERS SLIGHTLY PITTED AND COULD DO WITH CLEANING OR RECHROMING BEING CRITICAL BUT IT ALL ADDS TO THE CHARACTER AND CHARM OF THIS CAR!!)



THE INTERIOR LOOKS LIKE IT DID IN 1962 THE RUBBER MATS ARE LIKE NEW,THE SEATS,HEADLINING ETC ARE INCREDIBLE (PASSENGER OR BACK SEAT LOOK UNUSED!!) THE DASH CRASH PAD IS UNMARKED AND STILL HAS THAT OLD FORD SMELL!!!



THE ENGINE BAY IS IN GOOD ORIGINAL CONDITION (STRUT TOPS PERFECT AGAIN NEVER WELDED COMPLETE WITH ALL BODY TAGS AND CHASSIS NUMBER STAMPED - TO MAKE A SHOW WINNING CAR THE NEW OWNER MAY WISH TO REPAINT THE ENGINE BAY BUT THIS IS PERSONAL PREFERENCE!!)



THE BOOT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION (LOOKS UNUSED) COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL BOOT MAT,SPARE WHEEL AND ORIGINAL UNUSED METALLIFACTURE TOOL KIT!!!


THIS REALLY IS A STUNNING CAR WITH EXCELLENT PROVENANCE AND WHILST NOT CHEAP IT IS A 1962 FACTORY EARLY BUILD CAR,1 FAMILY OWNER FOR THE MAJORITY OF ITS LIFE,16,348 MILES FROM NEW AND HAS NEVER BEEN RESTORED AND RETAINS ALL CORRECT FEATURES AND ORIGINAL BODY PANELS & SILLS (YOU WILL NEVER FIND ANOTHER LIKE IT AND REALLY NEEDS TO BE OWNED BY A SERIOUS COLLECTOR OR TUCKED AWAY IN A MUSEUM!!)



THE PICTURES DO NOT DO THIS CORTINA ANY JUSTICE IT REALLY NEEDS TO BE SEEN TO BE FULLY APPRECIATED!!!



YOU CANNOT COMPARE THIS CAR TO ANOTHER OTHER FORD CORTINA CURRENTLY FOR SALE AS A COMPARABLE CAR IS NOT AVAILABLE!!!



AS LISTED ABOVE WE ARE BEING VERY CRITICAL AND DUE TO MANY EMAILS/PHONE CALLS WE WOULD PERSONALLY RECHROME THE BUMPERS AND REPAINT THE ENGINE BAY (APPROX COST £500) TO MAKE THIS FAULTLESS BUT HAS A CHARMING PATINA AS IT IS AND WE ARE BEING FUSSY!!!



WE HAVE REDUCED TO £15,995 WHILST NOT CHEAP IS A UNIQUE MOTOR CAR!! (WE DON'T NEED THE MONEY OR THE SPACE BUT WE WOULD LIKE IT TO GO TO A LOVING OWNER!!)



PLEASE BE REALISTIC YOU CANNOT COMPARE THIS CAR TO YOUR AVERAGE CORTINA (A USEABLE/NICE SALOON CORTINA IS NOW £7,000 - £14,000 MOST OF WHICH HAS BEEN WELDED,MESSED WITH AND ALTERED!!) - YOU COULD NOT RESTORE A CAR PROPERLY FOR £25,000!!! SO AT THIS PRICE THIS CORTINA OFFERS GOOD VALUE FOR MONEY FOR SUCH A RARE EARLY LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLE AND IS A SURE FIRE INVESTMENT FOR ITS NEW OWNER!!



** RECENTLY IN 2016 A 1963 FORD CORTINA GT SALOON WITH 19,000 MILES MADE £26,880 AT HISTORICS AT BROOKLANDS AUCTION - (GRANTED ITS A GT BUT STILL A SALOON WHICH JUST CONFIRMS EARLY CORTINAS ARE IN DEMAND!! **



CORTINA'S LIKE THIS ARE ONLY ORIGINAL ONCE AND WE HAVE NOT SEEN ANOTHER LIKE THIS FOR IN EXCESS OF 30+ YEARS NEVER MIND ONE OF THE VERY FIRST PRODUCED!!
