Despite the disastrous sales of the Classic, Ford decided to launch another saloon model intended to plug the gap between the Cortina and Zephyr 4. The standard model, called Corsair, used Cortina Super running gear and featured more adventurous styling than the Cortina. A more sporting Corsair GT was also available which offered more power than the standard car.
The Corsair GT used a 1498cc Cortina GT engine developing 78bhp which gave a respectable 95mph top speed. Servo brakes were standard on the GT along with better instrumentation, sports seats, central armrest and extra "GT" badges.
