  1. Classic Ford August 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and inside we reveal Ford’s top 30 iconic cars, a massive 32-page guide to Ford Fair 2018 and much more! We’re willing to bet that even the most scene-hardened Ford fan still has a dream Blue Oval in mind, and there’s a strong chance it’s one of the four examples that Ian Farrell owns — featured in our cover story. Whether it’s the relative rarity, motorsport pedigree or just the wow factor, these legendary Fords (and they can all rightfully be called that) are on another level. If however, yours isn’t part of Ian’s impressive collection, then Graham Robson’s Top 30 iconic Fords feature is guaranteed to have a high strike rate (and there are some unexpected ones in there, too…). A fair few of these cars can be seen in the metal (and some in action) at next month’s Ford Fair — still the most-impressive Blue Oval event this side of the Atlantic. Yes, it’s biased towards the modern cars (and so it should be) but the classics still play a big part, especially in the Classic Zone where we’ll be hosting an array of top-notch displays, as well as the special 50 Years Of The Escort display and track session (if you haven’t entered yet, then get yours in now!). We hope to see you there. Find your nearest UK stockist of Classic Ford August 2018 issue here: www.seymour.co.uk/storefinder Can’t get down the shops?

  2. The Classic Ford Summer 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and inside we reveal Ford’s export oddballs, give you the lowdown on the new MoT rules, and much more! If travel broadens the mind, then have we got a brain-expanding issue for you! Ford, particularly in Europe, was always good at reappropriating its range for the different markets (think the Taunus-badged Cortinas), especially in the ’70s and ’80s, but they were also at it far further afield. In this distinctly global issue we uncover the overseas oddballs that look strangely familiar, but were often very different under the skin, including VW-engined Escorts (Brazil) and Sierras badged as Merkurs and powered by turbocharged Pintos (USA) — Dan Williamson uncovers these and three more starting on page 50, plus we’ve also got full features on the South Africa-only Escort Bantam (this one now lives in Germany), and a US-spec, Dagenham-built Cortina Estate that never quite made it to the docks in time. Almost 80 Classic Ford readers have also been on their travels, taking part in the annual Classic Ford Tour, and experiencing the Laon Historique weekend in France (above) — an event like nothing else we’ve been to, and it was such a hit that we’re sure to return to on a future tour.

  3. Out today! Classic Ford presents 50 Years Of The Ford Escort Special 100-page collector's edition - the definitive guide to the Mk1 through to the Mk6 Available in all good newsagents.

  4. The July 2018 issue of Classic Ford is available in print and to download now, and inside we reveal the top 25 retro power mods you can do to your classic Ford! Plus you'll find an 8-page, pull-out Classic Ford Show preview! Most of us want retro performance— adding power means there’s quite a few necessary modifications allowing your car to cope, transforming it into the screaming monster we all crave. Plenty are the traditional ones that simply update the car and again, we take for granted. For example, the upgrade to electronic ignition. But there’s a lot of stuff you need to sort for an easier life and to provide the building blocks for greater performance. So you get the basics right first, which allows power addition as you go — there’s not much point slotting in a hot cam, sidedraughts and a whopping exhaust if the weak link’s a fuel pump that can’t keep up, nor an ignition system that provides a pathetic spark. With that in mind, we’ve looked at the 25 most-effective retro power mods so you can turn yours into a performing classic.

  5. Classic Ford June 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and it’s a photography special with expert tips to help you capture your classic Ford in its best light! Right from issue one of this magazine, we understood that the photographs on the page were incredibly important, and 263 editions later, that ethos still applies. But if you’ve ever wondered how Classic Ford’s photographers get such stunning results then check out Ade Brannan’s top tips to photographing your own classic Ford. And the best bit is, you don’t even need to spend a Mk2 Transit-load of money to get good images — even your smartphone is up to the job — which means more pocket money to spend on your project instead… Classic Ford has always strived to use the best photographers, and some of their amazing work can be seen in this issue, as five pick their favourite two images shot for the magazine, plus Graham Robson celebrates Ford Photographic — the late, great Ford UK image archive that commissioned so many of the iconic images we now know and love.

  6. Classic Ford May 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and in this issue we reveal the first class Fords to watch out for at the shows this summer – and a whole lot more! As this magazine hits the newsstands, the European show season is about to snick into fourth gear and we can enjoy a hopefully dry run of cracking events over the coming months. The build up to the 2018 show season has been long and much-anticipated, with more cars being finished or brought out of hibernation than we can think of for quite some time. To celebrate, we’ve brought together our pick for this Class Of 2018 issue, with all of the cars ready for showing — and driving, of course.

  7. Classic Ford April 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and it’s all about those crafty classic Fords with a surprise under their bonnets! Like most things in car culture, ‘sleeper’ originated in post-War United States (it’s a hot rod term derived from ‘sleeper agent’ to denote a secret agent who’d gone deep, deep undercover), but these types of cars have been part of the UK automotive scene for almost as long, too. In fact, Ford have been at it themselves for decades — the Lotus Cortina and Scorpio are two obvious examples, but for this sleeper special we’ve highlighted four less obvious examples to get you thinking. The sleeper look has never really fallen out of favour in the classic Ford scene and will probably be with us until, well forever, really. And they’re ever-evolving too, with late ’80s cars now taking inspiration from their elders. Even better, none of the excitement of discovering a sleeper in the metal has been lost, and we’re planning a special display at the Classic Ford Show on Sunday, June 3. Join us.

  10. Classic Ford March 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and it’s all about those (im)possible projects! If you’ve ever pulled opened the door to the garage or lock-up, took one look at that project under the sheet that’s been on the go for far too long, and quietly pulled it shut again, then this issue’s for you. Whether it’s trying out an unknown engine conversion (the Mustang/Coyote-powered Capri), pulling a barn-find (or Outback in this case) out from hibernation and getting it back on the road in record time (Tim Mattison’s seven-day Anglia project), trying to get a project done while working overseas (Ricky Stapleton’s S2000 Escort), or finally completing a build that’s been on the go for almost two decades (Mike Binning’s two-door Cortina Estate), these readers all share their experiences in our Mission: Possible edition and reveal how they came out the other side — and with the keys to a completed car. So with the show season about to kick into action, now’s the time to open that garage door wide and dive straight in. We’re looking forward to seeing the finished result at the Classic Ford Show on June 3!

  11. Classic Ford February 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and it’s an actioned-packed Homebuilt Heroes special! The backbone of the worldwide classic Ford scene has always been the enthusiast working away in his or her shed, adapting parts to improve their car -right from the 1950s when the whole idea of making Fords go faster became a realistic proposition for the keen DIYer. But it’s not just about tuning and improving Fords in 2018, of course- restoration has such a huge part to play in the build of any classic Ford now -unless you’re extremely lucky! So this issue we’ve thrown open garage doors across the UK to bring you the finest Fords for this Homebuilt Heroes special – and it’s a real mix from a Zakspeed Capri replica to a five-door ‘RS1600’! Of course, if for whatever reason you’re more of a leave-it-to-the-professionals type of enthusiast, there’s no reason to feel left out, and there’s plenty in this issue to inspire you. But if, after reading the mag you feel the urge to grab a spanner and head down the garage, have a go!

We’re feeling properly inspired for the forthcoming months, and we hope you are too, as now’s the ideal time to knuckle down, do some homework, and make a start on long-put-off restoration project to feed your Blue Oval obsession over the winter. To help you, we’ve put together a 21-page guide to a hassle-free restoration of your next, or even first, classic Ford project car.

  15. Classic Ford November 2017 issue is out now, featuring 50 of your projects, restorations and rebuilds! If you need a big dose of inspiration to kickstart (or even restart) your project, then this is the issue for you. A huge number of readers have revealed their 50 projects and it sure makes for an impressive line-up. From the variety of cars – and vans – to the level of work that’s going into them (large and small) it’s great to see. Plus Jon, who’s built more than his own fair share of classic Ford project cars over the years – both for himself and for magazines – has put together an eight-point plan to help ensure that your own Blue Oval project sees the road, show or even track in time for next year’s forthcoming show season. Spring 2018 might seem a lifetime away right now, but actually it’s only seven months until the first of our events – the Classic Ford Tour to the Laon Historique in France – kicks off, and you really want your car on the road for this one… Find your nearest UK stockist of Classic Ford November 2017 issue here: www.seymour.co.uk/storefinder Can’t get down the shops?
