Well, they're Fords. I wouldn't have said any of them were particularly rare.

The two Zodiacs(?) on the right maybe? The other visibles are Capri I, Escort I and some Cortinas. The Cortina in the front row, is it a sportive trim line?

It could be a 1600E like this: /vehicle_454635-Ford.html

Yes - the front row Cortina is 1600E. The rarest thing in the picture is the 1969-70 Cortina Mk2 GT Estate in bottom right corner. Only available as an unlisted variant from Ford Special Vehicle Operations although not much more than a 1600 Super estate with the GT engine - only external clue was badging as the shield on this one. Only a few hundred made (possibly 700) and apparently 7 survive - http://www.flickr.com/photos/triggerscarstuff/3669153522/ . The other oddity about the GT Estates is that Which magazine did a long-term test on one in 1969 - they always tested very ordinary cars in a very austere fashion, recording every widget failure or rattle and squeak, so a special order version was a total aberration - perhaps they had a Marmite sandwich moment when filling in the order form.
