A relatively simple design by today’s engineering standards, this 2-litre engine is capable of producing almost obscene amounts of horsepower, yet it was designed over 25 years ago. Unsurprisingly then,

  3. We are 300! Join us in celebrating this milestone in the Classic Ford Spring 2021 issue — out now — featuring the best stories, photos and more, plus the top 30 feature cars of all time! When Classic Ford launched in 1997, we can well remember the buzz in the office when the first copies came back from the printers. We all knew it was going to be a success. Both the magazine and the scene have changed immeasurably since those days, but looking back through all the old copies to put together the 300th Issue special feature for this issue, it’s good to see the one thing that driv

  10. There’s nothing more satisfying than rebuilding your Ford yourself, and the Classic Ford July 2020 issue — out now — is packed with tips, ideas and inspiration to help you become a bona fide Homebuilt Hero! The backbone of the classic Ford scene has always been the enthusiast working away in the shed, adapting parts to improve their car.

  11. 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 en
  12. 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 th
