We are proud to offer for sale, possibly, the most inexpensive entry into historic rallying that one might be able to imagine. Not only does this car have good genes, being as it's a genuine 2-door Mk.I Cortina GT with a matching numbers engine, but it also has new MSA historic rally papers and a successful rallying history to boot.

This dynamic mid-sixties saloon is powered by an unburstable pre-crossflow GT engine fed by twin 40 Weber carburettors, mated to the correct 2000E gearbox as was fitted to the original Cortina GT road cars. It has a Gartrac Atlas axle with a 5.1 LSD differential, a front strut brace, full sump and gearbox guards, Minilite style wheels and is shod with Dunlop forest tyres.

In the cockpit are two brand new Sparco seats and belts, a full navigator's dashboard, a fire suppression kit, a full cage and perspex windows within the aluminium doors. The boot lid is also aluminium to save a bit more weight.

Offered ‘rally ready' with a fresh MOT, what' s not to like about this cracking little Red Rally Rocket.
