You may find it strange that we are featuring a MKV Ford Cortina on our blog. If you are familiar with the David Manners Group, you will know that our Family of Cars are: Jaguar, MG, Triumph, Classic Mini, Morris Minor and Mazda MX-5.
Due to the broad range of cars, many of our parts can be interchangeable with several models of the classic cars we do not necessarily specialise in. On a daily basis, we see rare cars that were so familiar on our roads in the 1970’s and 80’s coming to buy parts from us as they struggle to source them elsewhere.
This is a great example of the MKV Cortina that we so rarely see today. Our customer was buying mainly service parts from us as he often does as we keep available stock convenient for collection.
He regularly takes the car to 70MPH on long journeys, but commented that the steering offers quite a workout compared to modern cars. The length of the MKV Cortina has to be seen to remind you just how long it is. Thy by-product of this is a very spacious cabin with now retro dash and interior.
So, give us a call if you are finding it difficult to source parts for your car that are not necessarily part of our family. You could be surprised. Follow our Facebook and Twitter pages to see more of our customer cars.
