Thousands of Ford enthusiasts will be celebrating 100 years of Ford UK at the Old Ford Rally on Sunday at the Heritage Motor Centre, at Gaydon, near Banbury.

To celebrate this milestone, the organisers are hoping to assemble a display featuring every Ford model from each year of the century.

Alongside the display of around 400 Fords, will be the oldest Ford in the UK, a 1903 Model A called a 'Tonneau' plus the fastest Model A in Europe — a 1930 Ford Model A Speedster capable of doing almost 100mph.

Old Fords and all derivatives built up to 1985, will showcase the fantastic range of vehicles produced by one of the world’s biggest manufacturers.

Visitors will be able to see every model, from Model Ts to the cars of the pre-war austerity years, agricultural and military vehicles and on to the more luxurious post-war Zodiacs, Granadas and sporting Lotus Cortinas.

Many more will be on show alongside the commercial workhorses that carried the goods to all corners of the world plus the Transit Van Clubs annual rally.

Emma Rawlinson, event executive for the Heritage Motor Centre, said: “The Old Ford Rally is a fantastic day out and not just for Ford enthusiasts. We’re delighted to have the Tonneau and Speedster at the rally which goes to prove that not all old Fords were black and boring.”
