TC Cortina XL 250ci 1 of 1 - PROJECT for Restoration Or Fixer Upper
Please Note: The
auction runs - car sells to the highest winning bidder [that means NO buy-it-now price] therefore No offers &
No swaps-trades accepted. Also, I reserve the right to 'cancel bids'
of anyone with low feedback [e.g. 0-5] & Or those with substantial negative feedback percentages.
74 Tc 250 Cortina XL –
hard to find station wagon, original unrestored matching numbers, 1
of 1 build [pic No 2] fully complete comes with many spare parts n
panels, would suit restoration Or possibly a blank canvas for the
enthusiast seeking a project. Runs & drives, currently on full
Vic rego BUT once sold I'll be cancelling
the rego as its more sensible to move a vehicle of this vintage onto
a club permit. The LZC-069 plates will remain on the car, they're
recent re-manufactured plates but it's the cars original designated
number as sold on 16th of Sept 1974.
After 14 years of
enjoyable ownership I'm selling due to health reasons as I can no
longer drive the car, I'm 6.2ft and suffer from back & joint
related problems, I've been putting off the inevitable for a few
years but realize its time to move on. As stated in the heading the
car is being auctioned as a 'project' it does require work &
plenty of TLC, I'll try listing all the pro's n con's below plus give
full history details for those interested.
I got the car in 2007 from
an elderly man in Braybrook, story was he inherited it in 1986 when
the original owner passed away, it was his aunts car and apparently
she purchased it directly from Ford as a factory employee, the car
was a retirement gift to herself in Sep 74, [see pic No 11 ] though
was assembled in July 74, there's a wiring loom hand written factory
tag behind the passenger foot well kick-panel. Information about Ford Cortina for sale on this page. See price and photos of the Cortina Ford As the story goes the
car sat in his backyard at Braybrook from the time he inherited it
until I got it in 07, it was & still is very ordinary paint wise,
the Yellow Sand paint is close to rough-as-guts though was like that
when I got it but approaching 50 years old overall the vehicle is
I've kept most receipts
from work done during my ownership, from memory it was around 2010 or
2011 when I put the car back on the road, it passed a Vic roadworthy
inspection and has been registered ever since. Still have pics of
the work completed, the front end came out [front clip] for a full
rebuild, the diff came out for a new rear main seal and a new tail shaft uni joint with all new bushes at the rear, also had a new
windscreen and stock exhaust system fitted - though all this was 10
years ago things may need re-doing. Body wise the worst of the rust
is the lower left side rear quarter, to get through the RWC I did a
dodgy fiberglass/filler job so that needs to be cut out and properly
repaired. Not bad rust wise, only ever had troubles with surface
rust in the front drivers side guard and the front apron panel behind
the number plate those need to be taken back to bare metal &
treated. Otherwise no rust around the windscreen frame, no rust in
the wheel arches [inner & outer] or inner door frame surrounds,
solid floors, good inner & outer sills, passenger sill outer at
the rear did have a dent that I filled, solid gutter channels,
perfect boot floor with no rust in the spare wheel well. Interior is
reasonably good & original with no speaker holes in the door
trims, reasonable condition passenger seat & rear bench, drivers
seat needs re-trimming but have replaced the sliders on both front
seats and they work. Perfect dashpad with no cracks, centre console
is OK but did repair a small crack with a plastic repair kit, the
parcel tray is in good condition with a woodgrain XLE insert, has the
factory sports leather wrap steering wheel - a Mk3 GXL wheel so I
Regarding the engine its
running but requires work, at worst it may need a cylinder head recon
& replace the lifters whilst you're at it. Once again because I
cannot drive the car due to health reasons it sat for the past few
years BUT during that time I've kept it running and drove it around
the street, last month I gave it the old 'tune up' and installed new
points, condenser, rotor, cap, leads, installed a new Accuspart
resistor coil, NGK plugs [AP5FS], new Supercharge Gold Mf51 battery,
not long ago I put in a new waterpump & thermostat running Nulon
Type A coolant, just recently changed the oil & filter running
Shell Helix 20W/50 with Lucas Oil Stabilizer. The engine starts
easily and runs well on all 6 but I've noticed a intermittent
clicking sound whilst its warming up that tends to go away once the
engine warms, this might be an exhaust leak OR as I said could be
something requiring head work so be aware once again its a 'project
car' that requires attention. A few years ago I serviced the
auto-trans with new Type F fluid and it works well even the kickdown
is fine, also the brakes still seem good the car stops easily &
smoothly. Approx 4 – 5 years ago I installed a new starter motor,
occasionally the starter jams but this is due to wear at some point
on the flywheel, at worst you just need to move the car a tiny bit
and the starter grabs, part of the fun owning a classic.
