1972 Cortina Brakes

Hey guys and gals. I have just got a 1972 Ford Cortina. Am I correct in saying it is a TC model? It has dual healdights and is a3 speed manual with a 6 cylinder engine. It has 200 written on the side of the car, does that mean it is a 2 litre? I have got to get a master cylinder brake kit because it is not holding pressure adn I will probably need a booster as well. I intend to fix it up as much as I can. This is going to be my first car. If anyone can refer me to somebody who has or can supply these parts I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance, I hope to become an active member of this forum. I can't wait for a Cortina Cruise.

Regards,
Steve

Yep its a tc. And the 200 badge means it's a 3.3 litre straight six.

Re: 1972 Cortina Brakes

Are there any rear brake bleeders on this model Cortina? I had a glance but I could not fid any. I can ahrdly get under the car because it is so low.
