GAVIN HUTTON CONTRIBUTOR We’re not sure how he’s managed it, but Gavin’s ended up with another Cortina Woody Estate. Find out why on page 74. JON HILL CONTRIBUTOR Jon’s been back to Ford fans, Paint It UK, only this time with a manky Mexico wheel in tow for our refurb guide on page 88. ADE BRANNAN CONTRIBUTOR Capris will always be Ade’s first love, so he was particularly taken with Dave Smith’s stunning 3-litre Ghia. Story starts on page 24.

Any classic Ford is fine with us, but one that has been restored or rebuilt at the hands of its owner is always that little bit more special. Our Homebuilt Heroes series is a great success, and always features as part of dedicated displays at the Classic Ford Show, Ford Fair and now FordFest (see page 18), but occasionally it’s good to go all out, so this issue is dedicated almost exclusively to your homebuilt projects. You don’t need to be multi-talented, multi-skilled and multi-moneyed to be a Homebuilt Hero, you just need to be prepared to get stuck in and have a go, and perhaps most-importantly have fun while you’re doing it — preferably with a couple of friends along for the ride. Enjoy the mag. FORDFEST 2019 TICKETS ON SALE! BOOK…

club together

Cafes, museums, village halls, pub car parks, even a farmer’s field — when most classic Ford clubs get together for their monthly meet, it’s usually somewhere informal where plenty of talk happens. Ayrshire-based group, Scottish Old Skool (SOS) are a little different though. Their monthly meet takes place at a local workshop, and as well as the banter, they get to work on their own cars, too — a Ford home from home, if you will, that also just happens to be a working garage. “That’s all down to Garry (Lawrie),” admits Sean Johnson. “He runs the garage during the day, along with fellow club member Keith Knight, but come evenings and weekends he likes to muck around with old cars, and is happy for us to do so, too, so…

’60s mustang goes electric

British company, Charge Automotive is to build 499 fully-electric Mk1 Mustangs. Prices will start at an eye-watering £300,000, dependent on spec, and first customer deliveries are expected in September. The fastback Charge Mustang has a 64kWh battery pack and electric motors producing 469 bhp, which they claim should make for a 0-60 mph time in under 4 seconds, and an estimated 200-mile range. The car’s part-time four-wheel drive powertrain will be contained within a Ford-licensed shell for the classic fastback look. In addition, the dashboard will be brought into the 21st century, with high-tech features and a digital interface. Find out more at: https://charge.cars. COMING UP Inside the October ’19 issue!

back in the day

5 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 2014 Yes, it’s that Homebuilt Heroes time of year with six crackers gracing the September 2014 issue’s front cover, including Dan Smiths clever Crossflow turbo conversion for his Mk1 Escort, and a super-rare Genesis Mk3 Escort rebuild. On the tech front, Jon showed us how to get 8x13s on the rear of our cars, and we even gave away a giant poster. How about that? 10 YEARS AGO SEPTEMBER 2009 A decade ago we marked the Anglia’s 50th birthday (a month early...) with a special issue (our 150th no less) dedicated to the pint-sized icon, with Dave Bunn’s superb, spaceframed example powering its way out of the front cover. Inside, we interviewed oval legend, George Polley, and documented one of the best Supersport restorations we’d seen. Complete your collection of…

rusty corner

Terminally-rotten old Fords With a classic Ford or two in the garage, there’s not much excuse to go for a walk — unless you’re hunting treasures for Rusty Corner. “I spotted this Fiesta 1.1 Popular white rediscovering some dog walking paths near where I live in South Yorkshire,” says Pat Burns. “I can remember it being there the last time I was here 10 years ago. It then looked as if it had just been parked up and abandoned — a real shame.” Spotted an unloved Ford on your travels? Email photos and details of your find to classicford.ed@kelsey. co.uk or you can write to us at the address over on page 5.…
