Here is an interesting car, a Ford TD Cortina. Ford in Australia manufactured the Escort, the Cortina and the Capri locally. They assigned their characteristic two letter code numbers to the Cortina range. What we would call the early MkIII Cortina was the TC, and the face and dash lift MkIII was know as the TD. Perhaps, of most interest was ford Australia’s decision to fit the 250ci straight six engine to the ‘little’ Cortina. Yes, a 4.1 litre engine.
