Welcome to the new Cortezcoach.com! The site has been rebuilt from the ground up, and I hope will prove more user friendly. Please let me know if you have any suggestions!

I was getting worried the site was down for good. I’m glad it’s back and it looks sharpJanuary 20, 2016 at 10:01 pm #389

Glad u’r back Moose. VERY SPARP!January 27, 2016 at 7:07 pm #566Joshua C. ShieldsParticipant
Great to see this sight back up. I would really like to be able to download and/or print the PDF files though.February 3, 2016 at 11:37 am #572
Hey Josh! PDFs are now downloadable. Look for the download button at the bottom of the pdf on the bottom toolbar. I was waiting to pay for that feature until I tried the program out a bit first.February 9, 2016 at 2:29 pm #578TonyParticipant
The sure looks great.

Moose ; I’ve had a problem with the sales ad I tried to run. I’ve had the whole thing filled out twice,but the fill in your price flashes up. I’ve put it in letters & #’s and it keeps saying the same thing . ( enter your price )March 16, 2016 at 4:57 pm #604
Hey Lonnie, I updated the classifieds program, so try it again. I created a test ad and it works for me. When you enter the price only put in the numerals, no dollar sign or other punctuation.June 27, 2017 at 10:29 pm #774chuckParticipant
Am grateful for your efforts. Finding out in a rapid fashion being a Clark Cortez owner requires patience and dedication.
One question… How realistic is it to restore to original a 1968? Am down to metal and am having great difficulty finding Clark parts. Leaning towards a modern renovation at this point.

Hey Chuck! Full restoration might prove to be difficult, but I think you should be able to do a pretty decent rest-mod. Most parts used by Clark were off-the-shelf parts from other manufacturers. For the most part, only the transaxle, axles and hubs and some interior parts were made specifically for the Cortez. Some things might require a good parts house who can look up the old part reference numbers.

Greetings. Again thanks for helping Cortez owners.
I am on a time-frame and budget, so sadly complete
100% restoration is impossible. Also a few owners have
tried partial renovation, leaving a mishmash with very
little original left. The exterior was spray-painted,
WITH CANS! yellow with and orange stripe. The four bottom
corners all need replacement, master brake cylinder, and
straps holding tanks are rusty.
The good news is the body and roof are solid, the motor
purrs, and all 5 tires are brand-new. So starting from
scratch with new electrical wiring, adding rooftop solar
and portable wind. Thinking of going all electric, no propane.
Any Ideas are helpful.
Also included, miraculously, are original manuals. Would
be happy to send copy for archives. (Have to find nerd to
do the copying/sending.

Great to find the site again, I remember finding it originally about 10 years ago. I am again on the look out for a Cortez, and have my eyes on one so far that may be a good candidate. Don’t want too much of a project, maybe one that already runs reliably and is overall ready to camp. Always of course it comes down to price.
