Ford Heritage Collection

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

SuckSqueezeBangBlow spent some time with Ford's Heritage Collection last week, shooting a couple of features for Retro Ford magazine (details forthcoming when they hit the shelves). The collection is petrolhead mecca for any Blue Oval fan, featuring all manner of significant models from the marque's history. There's a handful of Model Ts, a 4x4 mkI Capri, the ill-fated GT70 project, the last Capri off the line (and the last Cortina too), the brilliantly unhinged Supervan 3, Colin McRae's rally Transit, an Escort Cosworth fresh from the Rally de Portugal, the winning London-Mexico Escort from 1970 along with its 1995 recreation, and much more besides. Imagine a room full of every Ford you've ever dreamed of, all pristine and in perfect working order thanks to a team of dyed-in-the-wool Ford enthusiasts who keep everything ticking over. That's what you're looking at here. Magical.
