Cortez RV

topic posted Thu, July 19, 2007 - 1:39 PM by  william
I know of a 74 cortez RV for sale very cheap. It needs a little mechanical work and some TLC. A friend of mine has had it for about five years, but do to his health and age, he is going to give it up. I have too many projects on my own plate and I hate to see this rare find go to a bone yard so if any one wants to. Save It!

    I live in Delaware too. Where is the Cortez? I always wanted to get one, even in 'frame' condition and retrofit it with modern appliances and maybe a BioDiesel engine if possible.

      I think you'll find it very difficult to get a biodiesel retrofit into a cortez. The space under the hood is very very tight. Once you get to working on one, you see a lot of the engineering that they had to do to get it to fit at all.
      Mine is a Ford 302, some had a 350 and a lot had a slant 6 which might give you a bit more room to play in.

        I have a 1965 Clark Cortez in good shape.Runs great. Mine has a 1972 455 rocket out of a Toronado. Some came stock with those, though I think mine came stock with a slant six. They got this one in tight, but it works. Possibly looking to sell this rig and I live in Eugene, Oregon. I would love to biodiesel this baby out also, but it will be some work....ultimately decided maybe not worth the effort, even though she is a sweet rig. Anyone interested can post back and I'll check.

    Is it still for sale? Where is it, and is it running?

      Still For Sale!! it's in Eugene, Oregon and she is running, pretty smoothe actually. Needs tags and the power steering pump has a slow leak. But it runs good, I rebuilt the top end a couple of years ago. Email me at
