MK 3 Cortina Perana

Post by 427TNT » Wed 28 Jul 2010, 15:18

How much is a Mk3 Cortina Perana worth?I can get one in good condition,I'll would just need to repaint to original colour as owner changed the original colour.Has got it's Perana tag.
What else do i need to check for to identify it as a Perana?
Any help will be highly appreciated.
Cheers.

Willing buyer willing seller story ... the original V6 Capri Perana which was an iconic bit of SA history battled to sell and didnt fetch a great price in the end, coz everyone wants the V8 ...... methinks there will be the same issue with the Cortina, there are still a lot of Big 6's around ... even the V8 Grenadas dont fetch too much.
But saying that, it looks like this may be one of the only ones left on the road and therefore worth its weight as another bit of SA motoring history.. ZAhistorics will lightly also respond further..

Hi Johan,

Not sure if it is the same car I looked at about a month ago. Black in colour?

Very nice guy, car is also great.

Rare car, but depends if you want to resell it........you would need a collector to be interested.

Also remember this car does not have the original engine block.

Cheers,

Magan,

Yes it's a black car

Also remember this car does not have the original engine block.
I haven't seen the car in person,pictures only.Thanks for warning me about the engine block
:(

You haven't called me or replied to my PM that i sent you.So i guess you 're not interested to sell.
Thanks any way.

Hi Johan,

Yup same car. Great car and nice people. Was seriously considering buying, very little work to get it back to original.....removal of the dashboard fur, dice, side skirts and front spoiler etc. :lol:

Have to say the car has been looked after very well though. :D

I managed to convince the guy to lift the driver seat and tell me what the under seat tag read as I was in a hurry.

His wife said the tag read 8000GT, which I suspect is actually 3000GT, so my view on the car was that it is a 3000GT with a Perana tag and Perana badge at the back.....could be wrong.

Cheers,
