If Cortinas are good for anything, they're good for dropping huge horsepower engine into so they can go really, really fast. That's because they're light as hell. They're also reasonably cheap too; well they used to be before they all rusted away. Jim Grilis from Speedy Differentials owns this wickedly fast Cortina and it's running a very decent Ford six under the bonnet. From memory, he took a BA/BF Typhoon motor and made it a whole bunch better. It certainly goes quick enough.
