well yeah been toying with the idea of getting a TD cortina, i like the curves on the TD rather than the squareness of the TE TF, but how much do they all weigh? i'd be looking at the 6 cylinder model, any help would be good guys
I had a look thru the brochures & owner/service & workshop manuals that I have for a TC. Only reference to weight that I could find was in the Service Manual ( 73 TC xle). You will have to convert it to kgs and the manual states that they are approx weights.
4 dr sedan 4cyl 2,176lb
Wagon 4cyl 2,326lb
You could be right Jason. The manual also states in a Note: " Add 55lb for auto transmission" which is another 25kg or so. I guess kerb weight means without oil/petrol etc. I'll ferret out my old rego papers & compare.
Also came across extract of some original Wheels road test figures from Jan & July '73 for the 250ci 4spd (155bhp @ 4000 rpm)
In Jan '73
0-60mph 11 sec
Standing qtr 17.5sec (probably on BR70H13 radials on 51/2 inch rims)
Speed in gears
Scary stuff. could never get mine to change direction on my terms!
