Where's the best place to find a classic Ford Cortina for sale?

I'm what you'd call a below average wage earner and I'm looking to buy a Ford Cortina of the mid to late 70's early 80's. The model with the very curved rear arches that had me watching them on the roads as a boy. I would be looking for one without rust because I understand the expense of dealing with that and a sound engine. Also would today's good garages have issues with minor repairs, parts for a car of its age. I believe these cars came in 1.6, 2.0 and 3.0 litre engines. Who might you suggest as the best or most reliable source for one of these models?

There are plenty of dealers that carry Ford stock so you shouldn't have trouble finding the car you want - just make sure you see as many as possible. Also worth keeping an eye on eBay and cars for sales sites like Honest John Classics, Car and Classic, and Classic Cars for Sale.
