welcome

He makes it all sound so straightforward in the feature, but we all know that converting the Mk1 Cortina bodyshell from a four to a two-door was a major undertaking for Dave Greenfield (see page 22). We’ve seen it done a few times before with varying degrees of success, but I think it’s fair to say that this is the best execution we’ve had the pleasure of featuring, and even the most dedicated of Mk1 spotters would be hard-pressed to tell.It’s this willingness to ‘have a go’ that makes the classic Ford scene so great, in our eyes. Whether it’s creating a spot-on Resto Mod like Dave’s, digging deep, deep, deep into annals of Ford’s motorsport history to uncover the identity of an RS500 Touring Car (page 90), or…

the time is now

Name: Neil Dawson Age: 38 Job: bodyshop owner Location: Lochgelly, Fife Car: 1983 Mk2 Granada 2.8 Ghia X Start condition: in need of complete restoration Condition now: shell in for paint then final fit up Time taken so far: six months Estimated date of completion: late March Is 2019 the year the Mk2 Granada finally gets taken seriously as a bona fide classic? If this mammoth restoration project is anything to go by, it’s damn well looking that way. We’ve seen — and featured — some impressive reader-restored Mk2s in the past, but this is one of the first second-generation Granadas we’ve come across that’s undergoing an extensive (we’re talking over 3000 hours) rebuild at the hands of professionals. The facelift 2.8 Ghia X is currently enjoying major remedial…

back in the day

5 YEARS AGO MAY 2014 When it comes to transplanting a more-modern four-cylinder Ford engine in your classic Ford, the Zetec was, and still is, the number one choice. The May issue gave over a big portion of its paper to showing how to buy, install and even turbocharge one, as well as detailing John Webster’s rather-impressive and suitably-powered Mk2 Cortina. Plus with Summer on the way we revealed what to look for when buying a Crayford Corsair — surely the perfect top-down classic cruiser? 10 YEARS AGO MAY 2009 A decade ago we were celebrating the Capri’s 40th (a couple of months’ late, mind) with Dave McSherry’s recently-finished 24-valve Mk1 fronting the cover and kicking off the birthday features— still one of our favourite ever…
