Previously Sold Fords at The Classic Connection


1957 Ford Thunderbird finished in gunmetal grey metallic with black and cream leather interior. Matching port hole window hardtop and stow away black soft top. Electric bench seat, original period radio. This attention grabbing ’57 Thunderbird has the 312ci Special V8 engine and Ford-O-Matic transmission, a combination that came with a maximum power output of 245bhp. The car was imported into the UK in September 2014 from a private collection in California, and has had only two owners in this country. This has to be one of the coolest looking cars ever produced and it is in stunning restored condition throughout. Faultless to drive and a very comfortable tourer.


Ford Sierra Cosworth three door hatchback, 1987 D registration, Moonstone Blue. Only 34000 miles from new with supporting service history. This has to be the best low milage original, unmolested Cosworth available anywhere. It has the original book pack, supplying dealer number plates, rear window sticker and even the tax disc holder. The dashboard has no cracks at all, the parcel shelf has no speaker holes and the rest of the interior is spotless and original throughout. The engine bay is completely original and unmodified in any way at all. The paintwork and wheels are pretty much perfect. Will be supplied with a fresh service including cam belt. A chance to own a very rare time warp car in superb condition throughout. The history file shows detail of all previous owners and their period of ownership from when the car was new.


Ford Lotus Cortina Mk2 1968 G registration, white with green stripe and black interior. This is a genuine matching numbers car that is an older restoration that remains in excellent condition throughout. The comprehensive history file goes all the way back to the early seventies and includes old mot’s and tax discs etc. There is a photographic record from the eighties when the car was changed to white from dark blue, it is only one of five cars ever made in dark blue. The car was repainted again in 2007 and the engine was rebuilt six thousand miles ago. Looks superb sitting on Minilite rims with subtle flared steel arches. Great investment.


Built in the UK in 2000 with 1966 period number plate. Red with black leather interior, only 19,500 miles from new. The body is GT40 Mk1 with a modified front nostril providing a deeper vent for improved cooling while retaining the Mk1’s original double inlet. Producing circa375bhp, the 4.9-litre Ford V8 engine is equipped with quadruple Weber carburettors, Edelbrock Performer aluminium cylinder heads, MSD ignition, and a crossover exhaust system, five-speed dogleg gearbox. Heater, Smiths instruments, removable steering wheel, and five-point safety harnesses. Immobiliser, chromed suspension uprights, Wilwood brakes, Spax adjustable shock absorbers, and replica BRM wheels shod with Yokohama tyres: 215/60 front, 265/50 rear. A truly marvellous almost perfect copy of the legendary GT40. Sounds amazing and is a real thrill to drive.

Autosport and Autocar magazines tested an original, GTD-built example in 1989. The former had this to say: ‘An original GT40 is priceless, but an equally charismatic alternative is the GTD40. The pair are indistinguishable from five paces, let alone 50, so faithful is GTD’s replica even to the discerning eye. The GTD is no “kit car”, but a thoroughbred in every sense.’ Praise indeed.
