  1. Inside the Classic Ford May-June 2020 issue out now, we pay tribute to Ford’s legendary twin-cam engines from the classic Lotus and BDA, to the more-modern Zetec and Duratec. Boy have we got a distraction for you this issue, with our focus on Ford’s always-awesome array of twin-cam engines. Since the first collaboration with Lotus (the Pre-Crossflow-based Lotus twin-cam of 1962), Ford has always pushed the boundaries with its powerplants, working closely with engineering geniuses like Cosworth and even Yamaha and Mazda for its regular production and high-performance twin-cam engines, and we’ve been reaping the benefits. So switch off and soak up some sweet 16 (and eight…) -valve goodness. Also inside this issue Stuck at home? Our top 10 essential survival tips — classic Ford-style. Cortina GXL restoration: One reader’s mission to rebuild a rotter into the perfect Mk3. Escort RS Turbo buying guide: what to look for and how much to pay for the Series 2 version.

  2. The Classic Ford Spring 2020 issue is available now, and it’s a bumper 148-page edition dedicated to Ford’s 1980s Heroes! Pop music, fashion trends, politicians… looking back, they all help define a decade, and so does the automobile. So while in popular culture the 1980s might be remembered for Madonna, shoulder pads and, erm, Thatcher, this issue we’re here to sing the praises of cars that proudly wear the badge that is blue and oval. The 1980s was the decade that saw European Fords change forever, with big changes to the method of propulsion and driveline — not to mention the styling. This issue celebrates those cars, which are not just bona fide classics, but downright heroes, too — whether it’s on the high street or the rally stage.

  4. Classic Ford March 2020 issue is out now, celebrating 50 years of Ford’s World Cup Rally win with our global special highlighting quality classic Fords from all across the world! The same but different. That’s probably the best way to describe the global classic Ford movement – a melting pot of shared car lines, model names, designs, and even running gear, but with the various Fords regional companies adding their own locally-sourced ingredients to make them all subtly different flavours. Add the owners’ own unique takes on styling, modifying and yes, restoration into the saucepan and you’ve got an incredibly varied, yet unified scene offering something for everyone. That’s the overall flavour we’re celebrating with the Classic Ford March 2020 issue, which cherry-picks some stunning feature cars from all over the world, and brings them together in one jam-packed issue, along with a whole host of related features including a monster tribute to the 1970 World Cup Rally – an event that arguably changed Ford’s image forever.

It’s all here! This issue we celebrate all that’s great and good about the classic Ford scene with our annual Classic Ford Awards special. From the products to the shows, the clubs to the people involved, owning and enjoying classic Fords makes this scene one that we’re proud to be a part of. Most importantly of all, of course, are the cars themselves, and we reveal your Classic Ford Of The Year. As ever, it was down to you to vote for your favourite from the 12 nominated, and the response was immense, with votes coming in from all over the globe.

  7. With Ford’s mighty Capri celebrating its 50th birthday, it’s the perfect time to detail every official version produced, and you can find them all in the Classic Ford November 2019 edition, available now! It’s safe to say that the Capri changed the face of motoring in the UK. It was one of the best-selling cars for countless years, and with millions on our roads at one point, pretty much everyone who picks up the Classic Ford November 2019 issue will have warm memories of them. To hit the magic 50 is a major milestone, and as the tributes continue to be paid to Ford’s still incredibly distinctive coupé, we’re going out on a limb with our definitive guide to every version and special edition officially produced. It’s an impressive indication of just how clever Ford’s marketing bods were at getting us to part with our hard-earned. Also in this issue: Banish rust! Your step-by-step guide to keeping the rot at bay. Escort Ghia buying guide: what to look for and how much to pay for Ford’s early ’80s performance hatch! Classic Ford Of The Year: the 12 nominees have been announced, and now you can vote for your favourite!

  8. The Classic Ford October 2019 edition is out now in print and digital formats, and it’s a 60 years of the Anglia special! The year 1959 was an important one for the British automotive industry, with the BMC Mini, Triumph Herald, Saab 95 and of course, Ford’s Anglia 105E all being launched within months of each other. And while the Mini in particular may be getting all the tributes at the moment, we’re here to redress the balance for the mighty Anglebox — a car that forged its own path, and set the course for Ford for the next two decades. It’s hard to believe that the 105E is 60 — a car that continues to be an important part of the classic Ford scene. We pay our respects in the Classic Ford October 2019 issue, and have chosen a couple of cracking feature cars (well, a car and a van…) that reflect both the original and tuning roads that you can take with one. Speaking of which, we bet that Cosworth, Superspeed, Broadspeed and the like would have never imagined 60 years on we’d still be messing around with these great cars!

  9. There's nothing more satisfying than rebuilding your classic Ford yourself, and the Classic Ford September 2019 issue - out now - is packed with tips, ideas and inspiration to help you become a bona fide Homebuilt Hero! Any classic Ford is fine with us, but one that has been restored or rebuilt at the hands of its owner is always that little bit more special. Our Homebuilt Heroes series is a great success, and always features as part of dedicated displays at the Classic Ford Show, Ford Fair and now FordFest, but occasionally it’s good to go all out, so this issue is dedicated almost exclusively to your homebuilt projects. You don’t need to be multi-talented, multi-skilled and multi-moneyed to be a Homebuilt Hero, you just need to be prepared to get stuck in and have a go, and perhaps most-importantly have fun while you’re doing it — preferably with a couple of friends along for the ride.

  10. It’s Summer, which means one thing – time to hit the road! The Classic Ford August 2019 issue out now is a Fast Road special, and has you covered, with the best roads, classic Fords and tech to keep you rolling. ‘It’s better to travel to arrive’ someone much more clever than us once wrote. And we have to agree. For while classic Ford ownership can be immensely satisfying, having one stuck in the garage or lock-up as an ‘investment opportunity’ is all a bit pointless, isn’t it? Whether it’s heading out on the Classic Ford Tour, retracing the steps (well, tyre tracks) of your favourite rally driver, or just going for a drive for the hell of it, there isn’t much that can top grabbing the keys to your classic Ford – especially if it’s been fettled to make the most of the experience. All of the feature cars in this issue have been enhanced for the B-Road (some even by Ford, like the stunning Fiesta XR2 featured) — we hope they inspire you to make the most of yours.

  11. It’s all about the wheels in Classic Ford July 2019 issue, available now in print or digital form, with everything you need to know about choosing, sizing, fitment and buying steels and alloys. Few things can affect the look of a car as much as a good set of wheels, and contrary to what may be perceived by wandering around the shows, there are a huge variety of wheels available that will fit classic Fords. First though, you need to know the basics — diameter, width, offset and PCD — and we explain these and what else to look for when buying used rims in the Classic Ford July 2019 issue. We’re all after something that goes with the style of our classic Fords. If you want to stand out on the showfield you can go that extra mile and find those wheels that no-one else is running. It doesn’t even have to cost a lot, it just requires a little bit of knowledge and some legwork.

  12. The Classic Ford June 2019 issue is out in print and to download now and it’s a 1990s special. Classic Ford goes back to the 1990s with this special issue dedicated to Ford’s modern classics, featuring the Escort Cosworth, Racing Puma, Ka, Mondeo, Probe and many more!

  13. The Classic Ford May 2019 issue is out in print and to download from Thursday, April 18, and it’s a Class Of 2019 special with exclusive features the cars to see at the shows this summer! Plus 6-page Classic Ford Show 2019 preview! As we inch slowly into the outdoor show season here in the UK, the draw of freshly-painted Ford metal is a strong one, and so in Classic Ford May 2019 issue we reveal the nine cars that we predict you’ll be particularly drooling over this summer. Some are finished and about to hit the road, some are almost there, they’re all uniquely different, but what unites them is the fact that they are also all awesome show-stoppers. If you only get to go to one show this summer, then make sure it’s the Classic Ford Show at its brand-new location, Mallory Park Circuit on June 2 — the May issue has an exclusive preview of what we have planned. We’re also aiming to get all of the cars featured in this issue together. So bring a step-ladder — you’ll need it to see above the crowds.
