  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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!

  7. 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.

  9. Hi Scott, Yes, it's in the listings. Running Jayne's feature on the 2018 tour (with details of this year's) in the Spring issue, out March 21. Thanks, Simon
  10. Summer is coming! Whether it’s an essential show, awesome roadtrip or tips to keep your classic in top shape, the Classic Ford April 2019 issue – out now – is your guide with 50 top ideas inside! Plus: rare Capri 3000GT, Cortina Mk2 buying tips, how to update ’60s Ford axles and much, much more. Roadtrips are the best. As much as we enjoy the rare opportunity to spend some time in the lock-up tinkering away, there’s nothing like the excitement of setting out early and hitting the road in your classic Ford — especially if it’s going to one ones you’ve not driven before. It’s one of the reasons we still really enjoy going on the Classic Ford Tour after all these years. It’s the sense of adventure and the uncertainty about whether the car is going to make it home or not. I jest, well unless one of Ade’s cars is involved. If you need some motivation to get your classic Ford out of the garage and on the road in time for the Summer, there are 50 of them in the April 2019 issue, and quite a few involve making a trip. Do yourself and your Ford a favour and make it your mission to do at least one this Summer.

  11. LOL we've never forgotten the 116E, but in the public-at-large's minds, 'Capri' will always be associated with the '69-on cars, so we run with that!
  12. Join us in celebrating the Capri’s half-century with a 38-page tribute dedicated to Ford’s cool coupe in the Classic Ford March 2019 issue – out now – plus know-how on anti-theft tracking systems, how to restore rotten wings and much more! Happy 50th birthday, Ford Capri! From the stylish 1969 original to the last of the 1980s line-up, the Capri always remained ‘The Car You Always Promised Yourself’, and 50 years on it’s still instantly recognisable to anyone old enough to remember when they were a common sight on the road. In the March 2019 issue of Classic Ford magazine – out now – we celebrate the classy coupe hitting the big 5-0, with a whole host of special features highlighting the car’s birth, production life and now new life as a bona fide classic. Find out how and why the Capri came about, and how Ford unintentionally created a new market segment in the process. Original 1969 examples of the Capri are extremely rare, but Classic Ford reader, Chris Taylor has not only found one – a 2000GT – but finished a lengthy restoration of it just in time for the 50th celebrations. It seems hard to believe now, but back in 1969 millions of people tuned in to watch rallycross racing on ITV’s World Of Sport, and these special four-wheel-drive Capris were at the head of the pack. Know your Mk1 from your Mk2 and Mk3 Capri with our handy timeline and model guide. Plus all the buying advice you could need, if you’re in the market for a Capri.

  14. The January 2019 issue is available in print and to download now, and inside this issue we celebrate all that’s good about the old Ford scene with our annual Classic Ford Awards special! Every year at this time, as we put together the Classic Ford Awards, it gives us the opportunity to reflect (in between arguing over who should be selected) on the season just gone, and perhaps more importantly, focus on the year ahead. Every year, too, we generally agree that it’s been one of the best yet for the old Ford scene, with the standard of cars, parts and shows just getting better and better, and wonder if the coming months will see those standards raised. And of course they will be, because it’s in all of us to try and improve on what we’ve done before, whether we’re tinkerers or fully-fledged restorers. So here’s to what’s been a cracking 2018, and what should be an even better 2019. We can’t wait to get back out there and check out what you’ve been up to.
