'Dad’s Favourite Car’ Out in Force at the 2011 Goodwood Revival

As Ford of Britain celebrates its centenary in the UK, the humble Ford Cortina has recently been voted "dad's favourite" in a survey conducted by HPI to find which cars our fathers were most likely to drive in the 1960s. The Ford Cortina was voted by 22 per cent of respondents as the most fondly remembered family vehicle.

Cortina Mark I and Mark II models will be out in force at this year’s Revival (16-18 September) as Goodwood marks the first 100 years of Ford in Britain with a daily circuit parade of 100 significant British-built Ford vehicles.  These will range from the very first Manchester-built Model T, right through to later Ford Pilots, Anglias, Zodiacs, Thames Trader trucks and GT40 prototypes.    In addition to road-going Cortinas gracing the Goodwood track each day at the Revival, fearsome racing Lotus Cortinas will also be competing for victory in the St Mary’s Trophy race for 1960s saloon cars.
