1971 Mk3 - basic or L spec. Cortinas were apparently assembled in Singapore at start of 1970s - would this apply to HK cars?

Cortinas were also assembled in Taiwan, which is a lot closer to Hong Kong, but I would have thought that ones sold in Hong Kong were imported directly from the UK.

Assembled in Taiwan from CKD kits sent from Dagenham

Are you sure? Taiwan is not a right hand drive market, so any RHD production would be only for export to Hong Kong and Macau. Assembly in Taiwan for Hong Kong would only make commercial sense if shipping CKD kits to Taiwan, assembling the cars there and then shipping them on to Hong Kong was cheaper than shipping cars directly from the UK to Hong Kong.

And how it was with import taxes to and from Taiwan? From GB to HK there weren't some, or?

GB to HK would have been Commonwealth duties so low or nil. No idea if Taiwan & HK had any trade agreements, but I doubt if China would have been happy. My guess is HK cars were UK made without any Taiwan link, but I've never found any references to confirm what actually happened.

There was no assembling of car in Hongkong, or? :think: Under "built in HK" I only can find commercial vehicles and buses over here: /vehicles.php?resultsStyle=asImages&yearFrom=&yearTo=&makeMatch=2&make=&modelMatch=1&model=&modelInclModel=on&modelInclChassis=on&origin=&madein=HK&madefor=&role=&page=1
