    Reducing this clip's current date range, the car shown being built here is the Ford Cortina TC Mark III, production of which needed in 1976. A date range of 1970-76 would therefore be nearer the mark.

    Looking at the interior shot of the Coupe upon the production line, this clip is between 1970-74.

    The interiors had a complete re-design during '74.
