Classic car insurance: Ford rarity sold at BCA

A Ford Cortina 2000GT was sold for £2,200 at the recent Top Car Sale at BCA Blackbushe.

The 1970s saloon went under the hammer, having been owned by the BBC since 2007.

Previously, it had starred in the Culture Show programme, featuring in a number of famous UK film locations for the series.
