Re: '67 Ford Cortina PERANA

Car has been sold to a collector who is familiar with the history and the previous owner.

Cortina was originally a 1600GT but converted to a BG V6 in 1970 at a cost of R1000.

Cortina SAVAGE and Capri COMMANCHE

Perhaps someone already made a post on these two cars. My one colleague at work mentioned it to me while we were talking about the MK2 Cortina PERANA'S.

'67 Ford Cortina PERANA

Would this be an original Perana Cortina..........I'm at work in Trinidad and Tobago so cannot really enquire :(

The 5-speed tranny is obviously wrong.

Re: Chevy SB Cooling

Hi there

I'm certain that it is the case but also make sure your thermostat is the correct way up - it can function the other way round but not open as it should..........one can easily make a mistake. It happened to me once a looong time ago. :lol:

Re: Capri Perana parts wanted

Hi Ahmed

Sure thing mate - if they can fit and the price is right, I'd definitely be interested.

Please drop me a PM if you hear anything.

As I said in one of my earlier posts, I'll need to just double-check the PCD and offset when I get home in December. :D
