HORNBY: Following the closure of the Canadian Hornby importer in 2023 we have contacted Hornby numerous times to secure continued supply of Hornby products to supply our Canadian customers. Unfortunately Hornby steadfastly refuse to communicate with us. Regretfully we have concluded that Hornby has no desire to support the Canadian market. As stocks of Hornby products are exhausted we are replacing these products with products from other manufacturers.
Launched in September 1962, and until a modest facelift in 1964 it was branded as the Consul Cortina before simply being sold as the Cortina.
It became one of the best selling cars of all times aimed initially at buyers of the Morris Oxford and Vauxhall Victor.
