Part of the Ford of Britain Heritage Collection will be displayed at the British Motor Museum from Friday 2 February. The Museum is delighted to reveal that a new selection of seven vehicles from the Heritage Collection will join the existing Ford cars on display. Also arriving as part of the fresh Ford line-up is a 1973 Ford Capri Ferguson 4×4 which is on loan from a private collector.
Ford’s collection, which totals around 130 cars, is not normally accessible to the public. The Museum is pleased to have secured the loan of a 1961 Ford Zodiac Mk II, 1979 Ford Granada Mk II, 1986 Ford RS200, 1988 Ford Fiesta Mk II XR2, 1992 Ford Sierra Sapphire Cosworth 4×4, 1993 Ford Escort Mk V Cosworth WRC and a 2004 Ford Focus ST170.
These cars will form a display in the Museum’s Welcome Gallery. The Museum team are hopeful that the great relationship with the Ford of Britain Heritage Collection will present opportunities to expand the number of vehicles on loan and to change the displays often to bring more of this strong collection to the public.
Len Keen, Operations Manager at Ford of Britain Heritage Collection, said “We are excited to be working with the British Motor Museum in Gaydon following the move of our collection from Dagenham to Daventry. This provides an excellent opportunity to showcase some of the iconic vehicles from our history and rekindle many great memories from visitors as they tour the museum”.
Stephen Laing, Head of Collections and Engagement at the British Motor Museum, said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase some of this incredible collection of Ford vehicles. It’s another significant collection from a UK manufacturer that fits perfectly with the Museum’s aim to broaden the range of marques that are represented here. With so much choice, it has already been tough making the first selection of seven cars to display in the Museum!”
