  1. 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!

  3. Classic Ford December 2017 issue is out now, featuring a 21-page Restoration Special! This summer’s been a belter for old Ford fans (despite the somewhat inclement weather!). We’ve had a cracking run of events, with the Classic Ford Show, Ford Fair and now FordFest being particular highlights. 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. It’s full of top tips and tricks for everything from bodywork to trim, plus Jon’s revealed the top 10 rot-spots you need to check before you start. And if you need further proof that it can be done, have a good drool over the pictures of all the feature cars in this issue. We’re looking forward to seeing the finished results at the 2018 Classic Ford Show — details of the show have just been announced, see here!

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  10. 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.

  11. Yes, that's a fair comment. Cheers, Simon
  12. 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.
