1966 Ford Cortina Fastback

In 1966 the Geelong bodybuilding company Bodycraft, who made specialist bodies for Ford Australia, built four fastback style "prototype" Cortinas. Three of these were two door cars and just this one four door was built. Despite a good reception from the motoring press, production never went ahead on any of the concept cars. This four door car was a "special order" for Ford's chief designer Lew Bandt and was registered to his wife Nellie until 1987. It is now in the hands of an enthusiastic Cortina collector in Queensland.

[None of the two door fastback concept cars have survived].
