Old Ford Rally supported by Peter James Insurance

No Ford fan could resist the sheer variety of Ford vehicles on display at this staple event. The show display is a treasure trove of pre-1995 vehicles with Ford engines including 32’ Deuces, Anglias, Capris, Cortinas, Escorts, Fiestas, Granadas, Model Ts, Zephyrs and Zodiacs

We also have a Show Arena with a busy schedule of live displays and commentary taking place throughout the day. The show may be dedicated to classic Fords but modern vehicles are more than welcome to the post-1995 display. Looking for the vital parts to complete your restoration project? Visit the trade stands with spares and accessories on offer.

A ticket for the Old Ford Rally supported by Peter James Insurance doesn’t just get you entry into the event, you can also go to the Rootes Heritage Day, taking place at the same time. You’ll be able to see an astonishing variety of Rootes Group vehicles, from Hillmans, Humbers, Singers and Sunbeams to the later Chrysler, Simca and Talbot products and commercial vehicles such as Commer, Karrier, and Kew Dodge

Inside the Museum you can find over 400 historic British cars, including star Fords from the world of Film & TV; Del Boy’s Ford Capri, a 1962 Ford Anglia from the Harry Potter films and Lady Penelope's FAB1 Ford from the 2004 Thunderbirds film. How about an everyday classic? We have a range of everyday heroes, including the 1972 Ford Escort RS 1600 Mk1 for you to see too. On the day, you’ll also find a large display of hand-built Meccano models from The Midlands Meccano Guild. There is also a small indoor trade area with diecast models, vehicle brochures and photos.
