Ford Cortina MkIV 2.0S Signal Yellow
Product Code: VA11905
Traditionally crooks drive Jaguars. By 1978, however, the Cortina 2.0S modelled here was a viable alternative. With stiffer suspension, sports wheels and a powerful 2-litre Pinto engine it was faster in an urban environment than a Jaguar, which had grown in size, since the MkII was the getaway car of choice. A yellow 2-litre S could drive through shop windows when being chased by the big screen flying squad and still carry enough sawn offs in the back to put up a fight if they got caught. Being a European wide model the new breed of Euro crooks knew how to steal one, sometimes from the cops who’d been chasing them.
