Julius’ Wimbledon White Cortina which was completed in 2007 in a Protec 2K paint is one of the classiest cars out there.
The 1964 Mark 1 Super Cortina is completely original besides one little secret. When restoring they needed an engine… an engine they got from a 1971 Cortina instead. A decision they needed to make. Though when asked for a tip, he said “No matter what, if the original is good, leave it that way!”
Overall the vehicle was not in the worst state. Through hard work, the entire restoration was done by himself and a few mechanics. With a lot of rust bubbles in the old paintwork and the rear taillight pushed in. Considering the age of the vehicle, the restoration was not nearly as bad as they can be. In saying that, those 3 years were no easy feat. But, it paid off as being a prize-winning show car and an enjoyable casual drive.
This vehicle was featured in the 2018 Auto West Calendar.
