  1. 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?

  2. Classic Ford October 2017 issue is on sale now! Go hellbent for Kent as we celebrate 50 years of the mighty Ford Crossflow engine! Incredibly, the second-generation Kent engine is 50 years old this year, and its simple yet easily-tuneable design meant many of us cut our teeth on working on them — and many still are. You’d be forgiven for thinking that the Crossflow has had its day. Bolt-in kits make more-modern engines like the Zetec a sensible alternative — and let’s face it, on paper they really are. But don’t imagine for a minute that it will fade from view — like the Pinto, the Crossflow will always play a big part in the classic Ford scene, however old it gets. Trends come and go, but the Crossflow will always be there — after all, you can’t beat the sound of a well-tuned example barking away on a pair of 40s. Also inside Classic Ford October 2017 issue: Cortina 1600E buyer’s guide, reader’s two-door Mk1 Zodiac project, massive Ford Fair 2017 photo fest, Escort 1300 Sport restoration, Old Skool Ford Drag Challenge Round 5, your tech queries solved, cars, parts and projects for sale and much more.

  3. The September 2017 issue of Classic Ford is out now! The magazine celebrates its 20th birthday with this special 164-page collector’s edition! Happy birthday to us! Given a major anniversary such as 20 years of Classic Ford, we could have just invited the family round and sat quietly in the corner while an aunt patted our head and said, “My, haven’t you grown?” But we would much rather share it with everyone who has supported the magazine over the years. That is to say we haven’t grown. When the magazine first appeared on the shelves in 1997 it was a mere 100 pages, now mis special edition is 164 pages. And as well as a full issue of your favourite magazine, we’ve crammed in 20 special features with the highlights from Classic Ford’s past two decades and the amazing old Ford scene in general. What has helped make the magazine stand out and thrive all these years is the support from the many readers who have stuck with us as we’ve grown, often guided us, and let us know when we’ve started to veer off the road. Thank you. Welcome to the party, we hope you enjoy it. Find your nearest UK stockist of Classic Ford September 2017 issue here: http://www.seymour.co.uk/storefinder/ Can’t get down the shops?

  6. It’s hot off the press and out today – welcome to the Classic Ford August 2017 edition! Can you remember your first time in a turbocharged car — that addictive surge as the boost kicked in? While Ford made a point of channelling that addiction into their performance line-up in the ’80s, for some there’s a need to take things even further. Retro-fitting a turbo set-up to a classic Ford used to be a fairly complex and often expensive task, but not necessarily anymore. Whether it’s taking a complete package such as the ever-popular Cosworth YB and associated running gear, like Wayne Cullum has done with his exquisite Mk1 Escort, or putting a kit together using a series of easily-available components such as Chester Sportscar’s clever Mk3 Capri, there’s something for every budget in this bumper-boosted edition. Before that though, we report back from a sizzling Santa Pod and the Classic Ford Show with quite possibly the biggest and most-varied line-up of show and club cars yet, and proof that the old Ford scene has never been in ruder health.

  7. Yes, that's a fair comment. Cheers, Simon
  8. It’s fresh out today, and the print and digital editions are available right now. Welcome to the Classic Ford Summer 2017 issue! This sizzling Summer edition celebrates our two favourite days of the week, with a particularly fine assortment of readers’ feature cars restored, built and rebuilt to make the most of Saturdays and Sundays when the roads are slightly emptier. We’ve also metaphysically probed the brains of leading tuners to create six build recipes for engines suited for the weekend blast, and if that’s not enough, run through the top 10 things to do on a weekend, too. Phew! We’re also not long back from the Classic Ford Tour – a long weekend in Germany, and a particularly good one we think, even if it didn’t quite go to plan for one or two of us! Plus we pay tribute to the late great Timo Makinen, reveal what to look for when buying a Mk1 Cortina GT, and much, more more.

  14. The Classic Ford April 2017 issue has hit the newsstands and is available to download right now, and inside we celebrate the art of building a manic street sleeper – and a whole lot more! Most people like surprises – the nice ones like an receiving unexpected gift or an unannounced holiday. But by contrast, most people who drive modern so-called performance cars definitely don’t like the surprise of being caught unawares by a classic Ford hiding something interesting under the bonnet – even more so when it’s at Santa Pod and there’s a large crowd to witness the humiliation. We’d like to think the word sleeper was invented for classic Fords — no other marque arguably lends itself quite so well to the wolf in sheep’s clothing look. The Fiesta Popular Plus, Granada L, Escort Ghia… they’re all shopper-spec — or are they? This issue’s dedicated to the art of the sleeper — of building cars with a secret. We’ve given you a few tips to get started with our build guide, but the real lessons come from the four examples featured. Never has the phrase ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’ been more apt. Plus inside Classic Ford April 2017 we profile the awesome Andy Rouse, give you the lowdown on buying a Mk3 Transit, reveal the ins and outs of tuning Ford’s 1600 EcoBoost engine, and show you how to replace wheel bearings.

  15. The Classic Ford March 2017 issue has hit the newsstands and is available to download right now, and inside we go global with six of the best classic Fords from around the world — including that Mk1 Cortina V8 from the USA – and a whole lot more! Plus inside we profile the awesome Ari Vatanen, give you the lowdown on buying a Mk2 Escort RS2000, document the restoration of a stunning Anglia 105E, and show you how to fit bike carbs to your classic Ford.
