Ford is celebrating 50 years of the Ford Cortina at the Goodwood Revival this weekend.

There will be a display showing off the best of Cortina, including some rare Mark I models outside the RAC Earls Court exhibition.

Inside the exhibition there will be a white and green Lotus Cortina in pride of place on the Ford stand.

The Cortina was the best-selling car for 10 of the 20 years it was on sale and started Ford’s domination of car sales in the UK which has now lasted more than 40 years.

As well as the Cortina displays, two Ford GT40 course cars will be on-track at Goodwood Revival including a 1969 GT40 Mk III and a 1964 GT40 Mk I race spec.
