Description

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.

This CORTINA novelty number plate is the pressed embossed standard Aussie size  37cm x 13cm aluminium plate and extremely high quality, durable and long lasting and we are proud to say that it is manufactured in Queensland, Australia.

These novelty plates can be hung anywhere inside or outside as each is pre-drilled so ready to hang. PLEASE NOTE they are for decoration only as officially the authorities say “Attachment of a novelty number plate to a vehicle could attract the interest of law enforcement officers should it affect the visibility of, or distract from, or imply it is, the actual registration plate of the vehicle.”

For protection during delivery we use extra packing materials to ensure they arrive in tip-top condition

If you would like novelty plates made with your own choice of embossed characters, or even a plate or sign made to your own design with a picture background then we can do these for you. Virtually anything you want can be created with our modern digital equipment.  The key is good art, and we can do

ANY GRAPHIC!    ANY DESIGN!    ANY COLOUR!

Important note about images we provide for novelty signs and plates: Just as we sometimes see that “pricing is subject to change without notice”, so too are “designs subject to change without notice”. In 99.99% of cases, what you see on Dixie’s website or brochure is what you get. However, there are the odd times when designs have changed in some small way (eg: maybe a logo moves to a different location on the item, or the colour changes). Sometimes this information doesn’t always trickle down until the new designs are manufactured and shipped to Dixie. We hope this is helpful and understandable.
