ADE BRANNAN CONTRIBUTOR As far as Mk2 RS2000s go, Michael Hübner’s is pretty extreme. Ade heads to Germany to capture it for a feature starting on page 92. JASON O’HALLORAN CONTRIBUTOR Jason and TJ are cracking on with their Mk2 Cortina. This month they’ve taken a shine (literally) to the bodywork. Page 86. JON HILL CONTRIBUTOR Jon has been mostly in north Wales, getting the lowdown on new Escort rally shells with the lads from Motorsport Tools. Page 78.

For some, the most satisfying aspect of classic Ford ownership is the build, and this issue celebrates just that. We’ve scoured the globe to bring you photos and details of what other old Ford nuts are up to in their garages, workshops and shared spaces — and suffice to say, there’s a whole lot going on! It can be inspiring looking at project cars. They provide ideas for our own builds, and more importantly, help bring the enthusiasm back when yours is flagging after drilling out one too many spotwelds. As a snapshot of the restorations, builds (and rebuilds!) that are going on right now all over the globe, it’s also encouraging to see that there’s so much variety in the classic Ford scene. If all this talk of project cars has…

brush strokes

Car brochures and illustrations go hand in hand. Way back when photography wasn’t the preferred medium, exquisite drawings of a manufacturer’s wares were the norm; producing lovely dream-like brochures that were exquisite pieces of art. All were painstakingly drawn by very clever commercial artists and then coloured by hand. And, although photography took over, the practice never really went away — in fact, many current publicity materials are illustrations, done these days with the stroke of a mouse and CGI, but it’s illustration none-the-less. And it’s easy to see why — creating photographs of exactly what you want can be very costly, not to mention, darn near impossible. Again computer trickery plays its part, but it’s all seriously time consuming and, expensive. With so much dependent on the computer, it’s easy…

hit les routes!

Winter? Meh. We’re looking past that and towards next Spring where we’ll be heading to the roads and beaches of northern France for the 2019 Classic Ford Tour. Next year is the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings — a pivotal moment in World War 2, and you can enjoy what should be a memorable four-day Classic Ford break to Normandy’s dramatic coastline over the long weekend of May 24-27, including the evocative landing beaches, and the Atlantikwall — one of the last major defence lines of this century. The Normandy coastline is dotted with museums and memorials, which commemorate the soldiers of all nationalities that lost their lives. These include The Grand Bunker Museum, Merville Battery Museum and Centre Juno Beach to mention just a few. But it’s not just about…

rusty corner

They’re still out there, and still in far-flung corners of the globe, too. What are we taking about? Unloved Fords, of course with this issue’s submission coming courtesy of Tim Berry, who came across the front end of this Prefect 107E poking out from the undergrowth in Aotearoa in New Zealand. It’s not looking in great shape, but hopefully it’ll yield a few useful bits and prices for budding Kiwi 107E restorers. Spotted an unloved Ford? Email classicford.ed@kelsey.co.uk or write to us at the address over on page 5.…
