  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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
  7. 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.

  8. 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!
  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Classic Ford December 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and inside this issue we celebrate the art of Resto Mod, showing you how to mix classic looks with modern performance. There’s been much interest in the general automotive media recently about classic cars being given updated internals by professional outfits while keeping the classic looks and feel (though the emphasis has been on the resulting price tags…), but we would argue that the classic Ford boys and girls were doing what has become known as Resto Mod first. Dropping in a later engine with running gear to match has been a mainstay of the classic Ford scene for so long, but in recent years the game has been upped considerably, with the focus on keeping what makes a classic Ford classic very much intact. It’s probably down to the increasing value of our cars, but I’d also like to think it’s because we know so much more than we did 10-15 years ago, and the availability — and quality — of bolt-in kits has got so much better, too. What it all boils down to though, is turning out a cracking classic Ford, and that applies to a standard restored example as much as it does one that can be called Resto Mod — and there are incredible examples of each discipline is this issue.

  13. Classic Ford November 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and in this edition we celebrate your classic Ford projects, rebuilds and restorations! For some, the most satisfying aspect of classic Ford ownership is the build, and the Classic Ford November 2018 issue celebrates just that. We’ve scoured the globe to bring you photos and details of what other old Ford nuts are up to in their garages, workshops and shared spaces — and suffice to say, there’s a whole lot going on! It can be inspiring looking at project cars. They provide ideas for our own builds, and more importantly, help bring the enthusiasm back when yours is flagging after drilling out one too many spotwelds. As a snapshot of the restorations, builds (and rebuilds!) that are going on right now all over the globe, it’s also encouraging to see that there’s so much variety in the classic Ford scene. If all this talk of project cars has inspired you to start a new one, then check out our guide to buying, planning and building one, put together with the help of Mick and Chris at Old Ford Autos — what these two don’t know about picking up projects could be scrawled on the back of a 100E brake light lens… Find your nearest UK stockist of Classic Ford November 2018 issue here: www.seymour.co.uk/storefinderhttps://pocketmags.com/classic-ford-magazine Can’t get down the shops?

  14. Classic Ford October 2018 issue is available in print and to download now, and in this edition we celebrate 50 years of the mighty Mk1 Escort! For a design that is now over 50 years old, the Mk1 Escort is shaping up rather well, don’t you think? Its clean lines, lack of fins and that slimline, dog-bone grille help it to look far more contemporary than its rivals of the period. That’s just one of the main reasons why, five decades on, the original Escort is held in such high regard so for this issue we’ve put together a selection of celebratory features highlighting its achievements both as a main player in the classic Ford scene and as a icon of the motorsport world, too. We still find it hard to accept that a car that was so prevalent on our roads when we were kids is now positively vintage, yet here we are in 2018 and the Mk1 is not only celebrating a major birthday but it’s also ever been in better shape with levels of popularity that have pushed it to iconic status, and with an inventory of new parts available that (its younger brother, the Mk2 aside), makes other Ford models of the era insanely jealous. Happy birthday, Mk1. Find your nearest UK stockist of Classic Ford October 2018 issue here: www.seymour.co.uk/storefinder Can’t get down the shops?
