1982 Ford Cortina P100 Pickup
Rare variant on the Cortina; imported from South Africa in 2017; 3-litre V6 engine; showing 62,000 miles; two recorded previous keepers since arriving in the UK
Introduced in 1971, manufacturing of these Cortina Pickups was solely in South Africa initially and proved to be very popular and pretty handy over there, before later examples were constructed slightly closer to home in Portugal.
This one has spent almost all its life in South Africa until being imported to the UK in 2017. The mileage shows only 62,000 and after taking a look around the car and the condition of the original 3.0 litre V6 beast under the bonnet, the vendor believes this to be correct. Holding a current MOT until July this year, bidders should be advised that there were a few advisories, including some corrosion to the brake pipes and also to the front bulkhead area. We understand that a complete new exhaust system has been recently fitted, timing and valve clearances done, the interior of the cab recovered along with the new tray canvas.
It has obviously had a few modifications done over the years, including the deep 8J x 15 alloy wheels and the removal of the plastic front bumper (included with the car) but these ‘bakkies’ along with their later Sierra counterparts appear to be becoming favourites to modify, drift and hot up, so if not destined for a private collection of rare machines, this could be next seen, tuned up and on a drift circuit near you.
