Rude wagon: 1971 Ford Cortina Mk2 “Savage” estate


There are cars that could not considered “beautiful” in the strict sense, but they can just because they have charisma, and this car is one of those. Actually it’s a Ford Cortina Wagon which has been converted to “Savage” specifications.


This car had a restoration during year 2005 when, so says the seller, this car has been completely overhauled at a cost of GBP 45,000. We must say that this restoration has been done with much taste and respectfully towards the period features. Interiors looks simple but extremely clean and detailed: the racing seats fits perfectly into such early ’70s cockpit. All such work has been completed with a sliding soft top and a set of beautiful black alloy wheels.


The engine is a 3.0L Ford V6: it spreads its sound through a Chris Tullett bespoke stainless steel exhaust system. Basically, there is nothing of this car which we don’t like. Find it for sale at £29,995 (today $48,000) here in Ure Bank Top, UK.
