Cortina The Story of Ford's Best-Seller - Front Cover

Front Cover

Front Cover


In the 1960s, the Cortina was an entirely new type of British car; light yet strong, cheap to buy yet roomy. It established a new class of car: the Cortina Class. Ford's rivals had to rush to keep up.

Not only was the Cortina the first, it was also the best--a fascinating, ever-evolving project around which Ford-Europe's planning always revolved.

Here, for the first time in one title, are all the facts, figures, images, and legends of the Cortina story. With over 180 color and black and white photos, this is the fascinating story of an incredibly successful car.
