CORTINA refers to the Ford Cortina car that was built by Ford UK in various guises from 1962 – 1982, and was the United Kingdom’s best-selling car of the 1970s.
The Cortina was produced in five generations Mark I-Mark V, from 1962-1982. From 1970 onward, it was almost identical to the German-market Ford Taunus which was part of a Ford attempt to unify its European operations. By 1976, when the revised Taunus was launched, the Cortina was identical. The new Taunus/Cortina used the doors and some panels from the 1970 Taunus. It was replaced in 1982 by the Ford Sierra. In Asia and Australasia, it was replaced by the Mazda 626-based Ford Telstar.
The name was inspired by the name of the Italian ski resort Cortina d’Ampezzo, site of the 1956 Winter Olympics. As a publicity stunt, several Cortinas were driven down the bobsled run at the resort which was called Cortina Auto-Bobbing.
