Sod's 64 Cortina Cosworth

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to seeing it. I ran a 2.4 YB Holbay Cosworth in a Sierra Targa car for a number of years until I re-powered it with a 4G63 .

 

How could you not help but fall in love with a motor developed by a small team in Northampton that went on to become an international giant killer.

 

A YB Cossi Mk1 'tina has got my interest!  :)

What front suspension and steering rack have you used there? Escort?

Your car looks awesome btw.

Many would say what you have done to this car is an act of sacrilege. I am not one of them.

Nice! That sounds like a beast. I bet it sounded sweet! 

Have you seen it some time between 2015 and now? :lol:

Thanks. You are testing my memory now. It had adjustable struts when I bought the car which are still in it. The cross member is a Escort World Cup cross member that was modified to work and the steering rack is an Escort quick rack. I think Retro Ford in the UK do a complete kit for it which would be a good option.

Ha yes there will always be some that would think its a sin and think it should be restored to factory condition. I can understand where they are coming from and its cool to see cars like that too. It would be boring if we all liked the same thing.

 Cool pictures. I love the photo at C&C with the old Barry balls deep in the engine bay haha.

Thanks. Ha yeah its cool standing back and watching that too as well as chatting to people about it. Everyone seems to have a story about them from a past life.

Lovely project. I love a clean engine bay.

I have seen this car at Caffeine and Classics - love it, so cool, well done! 2 door Mk1 is one of my all time favourites, I have owned 2 of them, and wish I had kept at least one! I just bought a Mk3 Focus RS from a damaged vehicle auction, which I am rebuilding, so I think our tastes are probably similar!
