  Ford Corsair - Biocrawler
The Ford Corsair manufactured by Ford Motor Company in the United Kingdom was a medium-sized family car available as either a saloon (sedan) or estate (station wagon) from 1964 until 1970.
The Corsair was replaced by the new model Cortina, the Mk 3, in 1970, at which time the enlarged Cortina became Ford's middle-sized car, and a new smaller model, the Escort filled in the size below.
Between 1989 and 1992, the Corsair name was also used by Ford in Australia for an unusually restyled version of Nissan's Pintara, under a model-sharing scheme known as the Button Plan.

 Ford Telstar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The Ford Telstar was an automobile sold by the Ford Motor Company in Asia, Australasia and Africa, comparable in size to the European Ford Sierra and the American Ford Tempo.
The Telstar was dropped by Ford of Japan in 1999, as the company sought to differentiate itself from Mazda by concentrating on European and American Ford models.
Local assembly of the Telstar was short-lived, and for a while the model was almost replaced by the Ford Corsair, which was simply a facelifted version of the Nissan Pintara, as the two companies were sharing models under the Button Plan.

Corsair was the first new Ford to be produced by the recently constructed Halewood Plant and personal recollections include the commendably quiet and smooth running, while the ‘zero-torque’ door catches (shared with other contemporary Fords) enabled door closing to be achieved with total silence and very little effort.
The character of the Corsair was totally changed in October 1965 when the quite refined in-line four was replaced by the Transit vans rather lumpy V4 in either 1663cc or 1994cc sizes.
Bright-work on the real Corsair is limited to discreet strips and badges here and there, like the full-length narrow band along the sharp edge of the body side that cleverly incorporates the equally slender door handles.

 The Mk.I Ford Cortina
Ford had been known for its cheap cars, and while they were trying to flog the Classic, BMC were sticking out things like the Mini, which was even cheaper than the Anglia, and had its 1100 around the corner.
Ford literature at the time boasted that all the air in the car was replaced every 40 seconds.
When the Cortina was launched, Ford had a 2.6% slice of the market with English fours, and by 1965 this had risen to 3.6%, with 15,500 Cortinas being sold.

The Corsair had been relatively successful for Ford and so it was decided to develop the range to include a new engine.
The 1965 Corsair range used a brand new V4 engine, a first for Ford and an unusual choice of engine layout.
Power output for the GT was quoted as 88bhp, a useful 12bhp increase over the standard car but not as powerful as the 2.0 litre 2000E model that was to follow.

 All about the Disappearance of Lord Lucan, by Rachael Bell
The blood type AB was also discovered in the Ford Corsair and in the hallway of the ground floor, where Lady Lucan said she was attacked.
The blood type in which the shoe impression was made matched that of Sandra Rivett’s, type B. Fibers found at the crime scene and in the Ford Corsair became one of the main focuses of the inquest.
Grayish-blue-colored woolen fibers were found in the Ford Corsair, the basement, Lady Lucan’s bathroom sink, on a blood-stained bath towel and on the lead pipe supposedly used in the attack on Sandra and Lady Lucan.

 Adventures with a old ford transit,
With drum brakes,cart springs all round and the often derided 2000cc Essex V4 petrol engine which was shared by some Ford Corsairs,Capris and Zephyrs, driving one of these early transits it is like stepping back in time a few decades,.
The near side door step.Front wheel and door removed to make life easier,step was loose and rusted through at the front edge.It was obvious this had been repaired a few times in the past.
The V4 Mk 1 Transit was current from 1965 to about 76 when it became the Mk 2, along with other mods the petrol engines were changed to the OHC inline fours.Very early (to about 68) models had different clutches,after 1970 the pedal assembly was completely changed and moved from the floor to the bulkhead.

 Indigo Rose Software Forums - A weird Ford/Edsel auto brand anomaly I came across...
The word "corsair" means a Barbary coast pirate or unsanctioned pirate ship.
There was a war plane named the "Corsair" which was arguably, "the most important plane of WWII".
As such the word lost it's original meaning and became associated with the whole "war hero" designation, and voila, there you have it.
