Hi mate, Thanks I keep my orion under cover during the winter months and I only use it when its dry and sunny. They were quite rare when they were manufactured (Only made 1500 units) and according to DVLA records there suppose to be only 250 or so remaining on the road. Many were stolen and robbed of there leather seats and wood trimmed interiors which the company TICKFORD had bog standard Orion 1600i shipped from the Ford factory and they retrimmed the interiors with the wood and leather trims. You hardly ever see any mark 2 orions or the mk4 escorts on the roads these days. I also own a 1955 Ford 100E Prefect Deluxe which is fully restored also. The gold VW Golf 130 TDi you see in my picts is mine also, I use that as my daily running car and only use the Orion on good sunny days. Thanks Ray fae dundee.

Beautiful car Ray--I had a "E" reg black Orion inj way back in 92. It was my pride and joy until some b*****d decided to relieve me of it--I never did get it back--I was gutted.

I didn't realise there was a 1600E made--it must have been an acknowledgement to the great 1600E Mk 2 Cortina--another car I wanted all those years ago.

Hi Ray,

This car looks amazing! They are without a doubt one of my favourite cars. I used to own one back in 1996, in the same colour raven black. As you indicated a lot were stolen, I myself became a casualty of these theifing cockroaches! Your car looks in better condition than mine did back then, I remember the leather interior was susceptible to wear. Your leather interior looks untouched. I have always kept an eye out for them and have only ever seen another 1600E at car shows (they are rare!). Take good care of it and thanks for the pics/memories.
