International Ford Show 2016
30/04/2016 @ 8:00 am - 01/05/2016 @ 5:00 pm
The International Ford Show 2016 takes place at Sandown Park in Surrey on the weekend of April 30th – May 1st, bringing together fans of classic and modern Ford cars from around the world.
The International Ford Show 2016 is a brand new event celebrating Britain’s most popular car brand. Set to become one of the biggest highlights of the car show calendar for fans of the Blue Oval when its doors open for the first time in 2016.
International Ford Show 2016 – What’s on?
The indoor event will feature some of the finest classic and modern Ford cars from the UK and around the world. Whether they are standard, restored or modified.
There is a chance to see the brand new Ford Focus RS and RHD Ford Mustang.
The show features trade stands from a variety of Ford experts and specialists as well as live demonstrations throughout the day. There will also be a significant presence from two of the Ford scene’s most respected motoring magazine titles – Classic Ford and Fast Ford.
Baron’s Auctions (April 30th)
Barons Auctions are staging a Ford only sale on April 30th as part of the International Ford Show.
There is a fine fine and diverse selection of entries going under the hammer from charming little classic Ford Anglia to American muscle cars.
Some cars that caught our eye in the sale were this very rare right-hand drive 1971 Convertible 302. This unique car was built in Dearborn as a special order New Year’s present for the MD of Ford. (Estimate £30,000-£34,000).
There are also a number of more commercial Ford’s in the sale. This 2002 F150 Supercharged Harley Davidson edition pick-up looks like a lot of muscle if it sells at the estimate (£10,000 – £12,000). Football fans will like the fact that originally it was owned by David Beckham.
This super-rare Cortina 1963 De Tomaso had an extensive restoration 10 years ago and has barely been used since. These cars were made in tiny numbers for the Italian market and considering Lotus Cortina prices, the De Tomaso Cortina looks a snip at between £20,000 to £25,000 for probably the only example of this car you will ever see.
