by Eric Dymock
Ford sold cars in Britain from the dawn of the twentieth century. It made them in Manchester from 1911 with components imported from America, which completed their journey to Trafford Park up the Manchester Ship Canal. Throughout the first half of the century, Ford vehicles were usually black, sold to the blue collar market, and proudly advertised as made from British components by a British workforce. Ford in Britain was recognised as a quintessentially British company, sometimes even by Detroit.
By the middle of the century, Ford began to represent something more than motoring for the millions. Well-loved models like the Zephyr and Zodiac, and best sellers like the Cortina and Escort transformed Fords into aspirational cars endorsed by victories in the sporting field. Ford made its mark in grand prix racing, at Le Mans, and in touring car racing. Its technology was world class yet Ford never relinquished its skill in production engineering, and at the beginning of the twenty-first century it was still turning out some of the best and fastest luxury cars in the world.
This second edition of the Ford File, one of the series of widely acclaimed Eric Dymock Motor Books, updates the story culminating with the 2007 Paris Mondeo. The book is a fully-illustrated car-by car account of Ford models sold in Britain from the dawn of the twentieth century, it includes a history and detailed chronology of the company and its achievements.
