An occasional blog series where we find cars from around the internet and try to persuade you to buy them…
What is it?
1968 Ford Crayford Cortina MK2 TwinCam Convertible
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
