Sir,

In a recent issue you stated that the “dreary, uninspired” Cortina would never stand a chance of outselling the Morris and M.G. 1100.

From the 4th to the 8th of March, my friend and I made a survey of the numbers of each car. Both the M.G. and Morris versions were included. The results were as follows: 47 Cortinas and 26 Morris and M.G. 1100s, four of which were on trade plates. (We’re near Morris Motors, Cowley.) This survey was carried out on journeys to and from school and during playtimes (our school is next to a main road to Oxford from Aylesbury).

Though the proportions may not stay this way, we feel that 47:26 is not bad for an “out-dated” car.

D. BEARD, P. BRYAN.

[I thought I implied that I had no doubt that the Cortina would sell extremely well, as it has. It is a car for the people and the statistics of our young correspondents simply prove that the people fall for Fords, the discerning desire more advanced automobilism, in the form of Morris and M.G. 1100s.—ED.]
