Welcome to Old Skool Ford

Old Skool Ford, what is it, who are we and what are we about?

Old Skool Ford began as an idea in mid 2004. The site was created to provide a forum dedicated only to the older Fords that predated the era of front wheel drive and plastic bumper adorned cars that Ford began to produce in the early 80's. On July 27th 2004, and with just 8 members (most of whom are still with us today) Old Skool Ford was born.

The site, then as now, was set up to cater for car models that were in UK production prior to 1980 (though we do also like to see similarly aged US, Australian and European Fords). This encompassed up to and including Mk2 Escorts, Mk3 Capris, Mk1 Fiestas, Mk2 Granadas and Mk5 Cortinas, plus any earlier models. The purpose was to offer a unique forum that caters solely for these cars and we acknowledge that this isn’t to everyone’s liking, but point out that there are many great forums out there that cater either for the whole marque, or for model specific tastes. But none that cater for a whole era. Old Skool Ford was, and remains, unique in that respect. Over subsequent years there has been much debate on whether this list should be updated, the admin team recently discussed these requests and being a members forum, it was decided put the issue to a forum wide vote. The vote result was in favour of maintaining the status quo and we respectfully ask your assistance and understanding to keep it so.

Many thanks and we hope you enjoy the forum

Best regards

OSF Admin

It’s our inaugural Ford Summer Festival on July 16th and we’re inviting Old Skool Ford members to come along and join us to celebrate all things Ford.


As it’s the 40th Anniversary of the Fiesta, Ford will be bringing along 40 fine examples including some from its heritage fleet for us all to see. Alongside this, a number of cars will be joining us on the drive down from Dagenham to Brighton Racecourse where the Festival will commence.


We would like to offer Old Skool Ford members five free car display tickets which will enable you to display your classic Ford at Brighton Racecourse as well as gain entry for a passenger; this ticket also includes overnight camping on Saturday, July 16.
