Up to 750 old Fords will go on display at the Heritage Motor Centre, in Gaydon, at the seventh Old Ford Rally on Sunday, July 19.

Fords including commercials, tractors and vehicles with a Ford engine built up to 1991 will be on display at the biggest rally of old Fords in the UK.

And this year the show will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of the Second World War with a military display of over 25 Fords, courtesy of the North Oxon and Cotswolds Military Vehicle Trust.

Exhibitors and visitors are encouraged to attend wearing 1940s costumes to add to the theme.

Visitors will be able to see a wide range of vehicles from Model Ts to the cars of the pre-war austerity years, as well as agricultural vehicles, Thames and Ford commercial and military vehicles, the more luxurious post-war Zephyrs, Zodiacs and Granadas plus the Mk1 and Mk2 family Cortinas and Ford Anglias and Escorts.

There will also be the early 1960s Ford Classic Capri and the later 1970s and ’80s Ford Capri.

The show will host a small club entry of pre 1990 Ford Transits and there will be a Ford autojumble and an arena with commentary throughout the day.

Show manager Tom Caren said: “The Old Ford Rally is a real enthusiasts’ show and incredibly popular amongst Ford fans. It’s is a great day out for anyone interested in old vehicles, even if they’re not Ford enthusiasts.”

Tickets for the show cost £12 on the day for adults, £8 for children and £34 for a family. Discounted tickets are available in advance online. Camping is available on Saturday, July 18.
