No, Ford did. Yes, this one is modified, but the Cortina Woody was an option through the 1963/4 Ford Consul Cortina Estate range. Very few were built.

"March 1963 saw the Estate car added to the range, the 1200 deluxe and the 1500 super , the latter being identified by the American style mock wood paneling on the sides and tailgate. 'Woody' paneling was available only as an optional extra on the 1200 models."

I've only seen two, that I can think of.
Wow I take it back, they did.

Ditto. I mean my Mustang makes 260HP and that feels glacially slow.

I can't even think of anything sold here really that makes under 75HP.
The only thing I can think of that was that under powered and built in my lifetime that I have driven is a Chevette, and hell no...

Really? Slow?

I just can't Imagine that... Maybe slow for what you expect from a Mustang, slow compared to the Viper, but generally slow?

I mean, I drive a 55HP car, and still I don't really have problems keeping up with traffic or even overtaking. And I would have no problem breaking the speed Limit in any US state...

Of course it's not much fun, but it's not that bad either.

Precisely. My [new] car has 100hp and it will do over 120mph!
