classic ford of the year 2016

Car A. Capri 2.8i
Owner: Gideon Mayers
Featured: April 2016
Imagine you could walk into a Ford dealers today and slap a deposit down on a new 2.8i Special. That’s the level of finish Gideon was aiming for on his resto. He surpassed it.

Car B. Cortina GT
Owner: Mark Rogers
Featured: April 2016
Already rare, most surviving GTs are two-doors, so when Mark came across this four-door project, he knew it had to be saved. The resulting restoration is a credit to his skills.

Car C. Pop 100E
Owner: Danny Vincent
Featured: April 2016
Danny’s 100E delights everyone that sees it, thanks to the seemingly unassuming but classic exterior, custom interior and 16-valve conversion.

Car D. Anglia 105E
Builders: Paul and Jim Dudley
Featured: June 2016
Tiger Racing’s Paul and Jim were tasked with putting together a 105E with seemingly classic mods, but hiding a new Zetec on 45s with matching running gear.

Car E. Granada Estate
Owner: Wayne Burnham
Featured: August 2016
Sometimes simple is best: lowered over widened steels, with an ultra-clean interior and exterior, Wayne’s Mk1 is jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

classic ford of the year 2016

Car F. Mk1 Fiesta
Owner: James Wilson
Featured: September 2016
James’ Mk1 was the perfect choice to head up our Fiesta 40th anniversary issue, thanks to its show-car credentials and hot 1700 Crossflow that makes it shine on the strip, too.

Car G. Escort 2000E
Owner: Chris Penny
Featured: September 2016
Period perfect, but with a perfectly dressed 2-litre Zetec to power it, Chris set out to build the 2000E Escort that Ford missed out on. It took almost 10 years, but he achieved it, too.

classic ford of the year 2016

Car H. Mk2 Escort
Owner: Chris Rennell
Featured: October 2016
Built with the help of some of the best in the business, Chris’ normally-aspirated Cosworth YB Escort is a lesson in how to make a Mk2 track day terror look and sound absolutely incredible.

classic ford of the year 2016

Car I. Cortina Lotus
Owner: Alan Lambert
Featured: November 2015
It’s all under the skin for Alan’s Mk2, running a twin-turbo V8 from a Lotus Esprit that looks like it was put there by the factory.

classic ford of the year 2016

Car J. Mk2 Escort
Owner: Dave Fisher
Featured: June 2016
We described Dave’s Mk2 as very much the blueprint for a hot street and strip Escort, and it’s just that — the understated exterior hiding a 200 bhp Pinto and on-point running gear.

classic ford of the year 2016

Car K. Escort Estate
Owner: Rob Amat
Featured: August 2016
Wearing those black Mondeo steels, Rob’s super-clean Mk3 is very much the classic sleeper, this Homebuilt Hero catching many unawares with its bike carb-fed 2-litre Zetec.

classic ford of the year 2016

Car L. Cortina Estate
Owner: Paul Whisker
Featured: June 2016
There’s nothing quite like Paul’s Mk5. Built around those monster Dax Rush steels, it features one-off arches and a 24-valve V6 that sounds delicious through triple Weber IDF carbs.
