Celebrate Ford's centenary at Gaydon - July 24th


fordsThe Ford Y & C Model Register is a Ford rally at the HERITAGE MOTOR CENTRE in Gaydon.  
All Fords, and derivatives, built up to1985 will be on show exhibiting the tremendous range of vehicles produced by one of the world’s biggest manufacturers. Everything from Model T’s through the cars of the pre-war austerity years, agricultural & military vehicles, and onto the more luxurious post-war Zodiacs, Capris and Granadas will be invited to show alongside the commercial workhorses carrying the goods to all corners of the world. Ford Motor Company are bringing vehicles from the FORD HERITAGE COLLECTION to celebrate Ford UK Centenary.

 Banbury Rotary Club are involved in an unusual feature - “Ride in an Old Ford” - whereby members of the public will take rides of a few miles in an old Ford of their choice and donate to charity. This will not only raise money for a good cause but also give a superb opportunity to experience a flavour of motoring in the past. Maybe this is where we encourage the next generation of enthusiasts. A range of old Ford cars will be available from participating clubs.

 The excellent indoor facilities such as the film theatre will provide visitors with footage of thrills and spills over the years. Gaydon offers a splendid museum for the whole family.  The outdoor arena will hold parades of some of the best Fords in the country and hard standing areas ensure that the show will go on whatever the weather.


Hundreds of cars will be on show and members of the public will see possibly the largest range of old classic Fords assembled in one place in the year. Trade stands will be popular with classic car owners seeking out those wanted parts.
