Synopsis

In the 1960s the Cortina was an entirely new type of British car, light yet strong, cheap to buy yet roomy. It established a new class of car - the 'Cortina Class' - and Ford's rivals had to rush to compete. Not only was the Cortina the first, it was the best, too; a fascinating, ever-evolving project around which Ford-Europe's planning always revolved. Here, for the first time in a book, are all the facts, figures, images and legends of the Cortina story. With over 180 colour and black and white photos this is the fascinating story of a incredibly successful car.

Independent Reviews
