With an average of over 200,000 sold each year during the car's incredible two-decade life, the Ford Cortina remains one of the most individually popular cars Britain has ever seen. This book celebrates the Cortina's place as a major part of everyday life for so many families from 1962, when the first Consul Cortina took its bow, to the mid-1990s, by which time the huge majority of the four-million-plus sold had gone to that scrapyard in the sky. Packed with fascinating images and brightly written by a highly respected author, this book will evoke nostalgia in abundance.
