Nice weather and record start make AllFord 2022 ‘Best yet’

The event, held in the museum’s arena and supported by TrustFord Aberdeen, drew a record attendance of over 230 Fords of all ages and types, from beautifully preserved 1912 Model Ts to the very latest electric Mustang Mach-E and E- Transit debuted at AllFord.

Celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, the Ford Cortina was launched in 1962 and AllFord enjoyed a superb presentation of every model from the original Mk1 to the last version produced, the MkV, including Lotus and South Africa variants.

In another anniversary, the Ford Capri ceased production 35 years ago in 1987 with the now coveted 2.8 ‘Brooklands’ variant.

Definitely not an original Anglia engine!

The Capri Owners Club, winners of the Best Visiting Car Club award, were delighted to welcome Ford Heritage Vehicles’ own Capri to Brooklands, the last Capri ever built.

This was one of four very rare Ford Heritage cars brought to the event by TrustFord Aberdeen including the first Escort Cosworth ever built, the last RS 200 (#200) and a purpose built Fiesta Group ‘N’ rally car .

A crowd of over 1500 visitors admired beautifully presented Ford cars and vans of all ages from across Scotland, many of which competed in the ‘Show’n’Shine’ competition for a coveted AllFord trophy, presented this year by TrustFord’s Director of Fleet was presented and Commercial Vehicles Mark Wilkie, who was enthusiastic about the event.

Mark said: “TrustFord will open its first Scottish dealership in Aberdeen on September 1st in temporary premises on Minto Drive, with a brand new, state-of-the-art dealership opening later in 2023 in Altens.
