hmmm, I don't know out of such a small motor. If it was a 302W or a 351C then I'd believe.

I think he is way off with is 1/4 time ,especially with the single down draught,at most could only put out 120 hp atw.you need 200 atw + to do that time.
Not a chance of 11.8
Bullshit

Its just me in the Wagon

i think the power figures sound a bit optimistic, however, if he has done all he said he has, then the car should still be pretty quiick. it is also a nice looker, so at that price, i would be tempted to check it out.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.

Re: do u think its worth it?

never says it was a single barrel I thought the cortina gt were twin barrel webbers. It is possible. They are a really light car but it's not going to happen on those tyres.
If he has 190hp at the wheels then that is a possible time.
My mate had an escort a long time ago with a side draft webber and a lot of work on the 2lt OHC pinto motor and that thing pulled solid 12's
