    Out now: Classic Ford August 2021 issue

    There’s nothing more satisfying than rebuilding your classic Ford yourself, and the Classic Ford August 2021 issue, out now, is packed with tips, ideas and inspiration to help you become a bona fide Homebuilt Hero — plus exclusive in-depth feature on the world’s first electric Cortina!

    Taking the electric motor part out of the discussion for a moment, what Tim Harrison’s done with his Mk1 Cortina isn’t so different from the rest of us. He wanted a more powerful and reliable method of propulsion, so he removed the original engine and bolted in a more modern one — sound familiar? The fact that he was able to retain the rest of the running gear makes this swap all the more impressive — it’s truly bolt-in power!

    Of course, there’s a bit more to this car than that. It’s quite possibly broken the floodgates for a future flurry of electric-powered classic Fords once the costs inevitably start to come down, but is it the future? We’re not sure — like many others we’re hoping that synthetic fuels will help protect our old Fords from any forthcoming legislation so we can continue to enjoy the sights and sounds of a pair of 45s hanging off the sides of our engines. But we do look forward to a time when electric and combustion-engined classic Fords share space at the Classic Ford Show.

    Inside this issue:

    Electric Cortina: battery-powered Mk1 that was a true bolt-in swap

    Fit a five-speed: in-depth guide to installing a Type-9 five-speed gearbox to your classic Ford
    Zephyr Mk4: your in-depth buying guide to the 1960s big classic
