What is it?

1968 Ford Crayford Cortina MK2 TwinCam Convertible

Errr, what?

It’s a Ford Cortina, turned into a convertible by Crayford ‘back in the day’. With it’s Lotus TwinCam engine, this is a real peach of a classic car.

Where did you find it?

On eBay, here.

Why buy it?

LOOK at it! That is one very, very good looking soft top. It’s difficult to make a four seat convertible this stylish. The colours are fantastic, it’s fully restored, and it has Lotus power. There is a lot to love with this car.

How much is it?

£39,950 as stated.

Is that a lot?

No, not really. You can buy Cortina Crayford Convertibles a little cheaper, but not with the Lotus Twin Cam engine and probably not in this superb condition.

But can I fit Powerspark Electronic Ignition? 

These twin cam engines sometimes vary, so check out these electronic ignition kits:
Powerspark Electronic Ignition for Lucas 23D or 25D Kit number K2
Powerspark Electronic Ignition for Lucas 43D or 45D Kit number K4
