The story behind this Cortina estate is quite a fascinating one. It was off the road for around 40 years, being given to Thurrock college while still comparatively young, presumably for the student mechanics there to practice their craft on. The college sold it on in 1998, but it was only in July 2002 that it returned to the roads, being reregistered with its original number.

There were reputedly only 12 MkI Cortina 1198cc estates made, most customers preferring the more powerful 1498cc load‑luggers. This one has been recommissioned at some point, although it's unclear when. Some more work will be required though, not least a new petrol tank as the original has rusted through and is presently off the car. The vendor also reports that the clutch pedal requires pumping a few times before it reaches full pressure.  

The odometer records the mileage as 6304 miles, although this isn't warranted. The history folder includes the V5C, owner's handbook, workshop manual, and assorted bills from the first decade of the 21st century.
