Great news the 1968 Ford Cortina on our stand at the NEC has won an award from Classic and Sports Car.

As we walk the halls we always spot a few vehicles that might not be entirely appropriate for Car of the Show, but which we feel are deserving of a mention. That’s why we created the C&SC Special Award, for the car that captures the judges’ hearts.

Shortlisted this year were the mighty 1911 Daimler 25hp Landaulette from the Daimler & Lanchester Owners’ Club and ‘Valerie’, the wonderful signwritten Morris van from the J-type Register, but our winner, for thoroughly charming our socks off, is Theo Bengry’s Ford Cortina GT, as driven by his father Bill on the 1968 London to Sydney Rally and one of the stars of the Historic Marathon Rally Group.

Thanks to Chris Rabbets for these images.
