The Ford Cortina was a family saloon built in the UK from 1962 to 1982. There were 4 body changes and one face-lift in the Cortina’s History. The Ford Cortina was the replacement of the old Ford Anglia and was the best-selling British car of the 1970’s. It was a golden age for Ford UK with the Cortina, Capri and Escort Models all doing exceptionally well.Rib en Bief Burger Stalletjie
From 1970 onward, it was almost identical to the German built Ford Taunus (being built on the same platform). The Taunus range prior to that was a completely different car. By 1976, when the revised Taunus was launched, the Cortina was identical. The Ford Cortina was replaced in 1982 by the Ford Sierra. The Mazda-Ford dual badge model (Mazda 626 and Ford Telstar) were the replacements for the Cortina in Asia and Australia but some Sierra Estate Cars were assembled in Australia
Cortinas did extremely well in both rally and saloon car racing in its early years and was popular with the younger car buyers. Later models were slightly larger than the Mk 1 and Mk 11 models and became firm favourites in the UK Australia and South Africa.
The name was inspired by the name of the Italian ski resort Cortina d’Ampezzo, site of the 1956 Winter Olympics
