Oxford 1/76 Cortina Mk I White 76Cor1001
Launched in September 1962, and until a modest facelift in 1964, it was branded
as the Consul Cortina before simply being sold as the Cortina. The car changed
the face of British motoring – a risk Ford took but which paid off as in 1963
the Cortina became the market leader, a trend it kept up for the next two
decades. It became one of the best selling cars of all times and its design was
updated every 4/6 years. Aimed initially at buyers of the Morris Oxford and
Vauxhall Victor. It is shown here in classic cream and green stripes.
