The MK1 Cortina owners club was established in 1982, and has members quite literally worldwide and on every continent. Recognized by Ford Motor Company the club welcome's all MK1's whether in standard form, customized, concourse show car, rally or race car or simply everyday transport.

All elements of the MK1 Cortina O.C. are run entirely by volunteers in our spares time, we are not a business and employ no full-time staff. The main aim is to keep the MK1 on the road with priority given to MOT related items but the range is comprehensive and ever expanding and a full list of what we offer is on this website under the spares shop heading. When necessary we re-manufacture parts no longer available for example MacPherson strut top suspension mounts and bonnet badges and the aim is to source spares and pass them on to our members at competitive prices and the spare parts service can and does ship parts wherever you may live in the world, you just need to fill-in the on-line spares order form and we do the rest. The volunteers that run the club operate a friendly and informed service including technical advice from Cortina experts who use their cars everyday.

A bi-monthly newsletter lists the latest spares and regalia available as well as member's letters, stories, technical tips, cars and parts for sale or wanted. We have Club stands at many classic car shows and members are always welcome to join us. There are a number of 'Pub Meets' which provide the ideal opportunity to swap stories, discuss car know how and exchange spares.

Once a year in the UK we hold a National Rally, this is a weekend event not to be missed!! Whether you attend with your Cortina or not we are pleased to meet members old & new. Members from around the world attend, there are Concourse classes for those who wish to enter or just a chance to make new friends. We hope you will decide to join us and help us to keep one of Ford's most successful cars on the road for years to come.
