Welcome, that’s quite a machine! Early grille etc too?I’m guilty of posting the odd tractor here, judging by the background to your pic’s you work with fairy modern stuff I take it?Would love to see photos of anything you see, random Japanese imports would please me as much as the ‘normal’ old stuff. I don’t think we have anyone else from NZ do we?

1973 Datsun 1200 B110 2dr; 1980 Laurel 2.4 C230; 1988 Sunny 1.6 LX N13
1992 Camry 2.2GL project car (still on hold); 1993 Camry Estate 2.2GL (was daily driver, written-off and awaiting repair)
1996 Lexus LS400

And a couple of modern Toyotas.

Welcome aboard!! I'm a HUGE fan of Mk 1 'tinas, and that's a real beauty, WELL DONE!! 8) As it's a pre-airflow, but with round instruments, rather than the ribbon speedo of the very early ones, I'd guess it's a '63 or '64 model? GREEN with envy! :wink:

Welcome - that is a seriously gorgeous Cortina, like Mr 55 I love Mk1 Cortinas and am kicking myself now for not getting a good one in the late 90s, when half decent non GT/Lotus models could be had for around £1000. I understand NZ is full of old Brit stuff such as Fords, Rootes, Vauxhalls and BMC. Is the guy with about 8 morris marinas on here or retro rides? - he's from NZ.

Wow. :shock: That is one impressive vehicle. Don't think I've ever seen a Tina fitted with a rotary before. And the rest of the car looks superb too. As KruJoe said, I think you should post pictures of this beastie on the Readers' Rides section of RetroRides - I think there are several people over there who will need to change their trousers after viewing those pics...

Looking forward to those. Your car is a beauty and, incidentally, the registration would cost about £90,000 in Britain (don't ask).

Here's my Mk1:

As you can see, slowly returning to Nature, far greener than any stupid Prius. (For some strange reason my Dutch mate Ralf covets the reg.)

Which was the one with CND symbol rear lights? Mine sort of hasn't got any. To tell you the truth, still not a great fan of Fords. This one came with the land which it's busy reverting to.

The Mk 1 had circular tail lights devided into 3 segments on the saloon, and the estate at the start of theis thread demonstrates that they had a different arrangement.
