What a fantastic performance Ford and one that stands out from some of the more ‘conventional’ builds. A lot of thought and effort has gone into this build, as well as money and skill!
From the seller: “Here we have a true wolf in sheep’s clothing.
It began life as a two-door Cortina GT that ended up being dry stored for many years.
Rather than recommissioning it as standard, it was decided to go the far more exciting route of turning it into the evocation of a Cortina savage, as produced in period by Race Proved of Uxbridge.
The shell was stripped to bare metal, media blaster and then uprated with additional stiffening and anti-tramp bracketry before being resprayed red.
The mechanical specification is highly impressive, and in face far superior to that of most original Savages.
The brand new fully ported and balanced V6 Essex engine was built by Lowman Racing Engines of Hockley, Essex at a cost of £7,500.”
