The MK1 Cortina owners club was established in 1982, and has members quite literally worldwide. Recognised by the Ford Motor Company & the DVLA, the club welcome's all Mk1's from standard models to Customised, including rally and racing cars. We have Club stands at many Classic Car Shows and members are always welcome to join us. There are a number of 'pub Meets' held around the country which provide the ideal opportunity to swop stories, discuss car know how and exchange spares. Once a year we hold our National Rally, this is a weekend event not to be missed and is this year being held at Stratford On Avon racecourse on the weekend of the13th & 14th August 2011, and this year will also be held in conjunction with MK2 Cortina O.C & the Anglia 105e O.C. Whether you attend with your Cortina or not we are pleased to meet members old & new. Members from around the world attend, there are Concourse classes for those who wish to enter or just a chance to make new friends. We hope you will decide to join us and help us to keep one of Ford's most successful cars on the road for years to come.
Important: All elements of the MK1 Cortina O.C. are run entirely by volunteers in our spares time, we are not a business and employ no full-time staff
Your membership will give you access to the spares that we offer, you'll receive A bi-monthly newsletter that lists the latest spares and regalia available as well as member's letters, stories, technical tips, cars and parts for sale or wanted.
The price for membership is the same whether you live in Australia, the U.S., Europe or anywhere in the world, and we ship spares literally worldwide too!
The main aim is to keep the MK1 on the road, therefore we source spares and pass them on to our members at competitive prices. When necessary we re-manufacture parts no longer available for example:We stock remanufatured MacPherson strut top supension mounts, bonnet badges, rear number plate lights, coolant hoses, genuine GT profile camshafts, heater matrix's and much more all of which are unique to this club Just take a look at our website www.mk1cortina.com to see the full list of what we offer.
On the whole we concentrate on MOT related items, but of course we cater for many of your restoration needs too. The volunteers that run the club operate a friendly and informed service, including unbiased technical advice from Cortina Experts who use their cars everyday.
