Ford has been one of the world’s most respected car manufacturers for decades. They might not be break records or do anything innovative today, but the team have a long history of producing some of the best and most recognizable models we have ever seen. Some of their best editions came out a long time ago now, well before most of you were born. So, we thought it made sense to release a post highlighting all the automobiles that made waves within the industry. You can still get hold of many of them from classic car dealers. Thankfully, one of the best selling models is still in production.
1998 Ford Focus
The Ford Focus is still in production today, and you can pick it up from any reputable Ford dealership. The reasons for that model becoming so successful relate to the simplicity of the design. Not only that, but prices are kept low to ensure the vehicle is suitable for any pocket. Safety was an important factor when designing the Focus, and that is why all models come with driver and passenger airbags. It might have undergone many redesigns since the first time it was released onto the market, but this model has sold more than anything created by competing companies.
1982 Ford Mustang GT
To jump on board the futuristic design bandwagon, the team at Ford decided to design a model in 1982 that could compete with the likes of DeLorean. Sadly, the Mustang GT never made it into the Back to the Future films though. Even so, it was a fantastic solution for people who wanted to get from A to B while making heads turn.
1986 Ford Taurus
You can still find these on offer from specialist dealerships, but they were everywhere during the 1980s and early 1990s. Ford designed the Taurus as the perfect family car that would suit Americans on the average yearly wages. You’ll never see that model in a classic car show because the emphasis was placed on functionality rather than style.
1949 Ford Custom Coupe 1
The bulk of people reading this post won’t have even been a glint in their father’s eye when this model was released. It was a modern machine for the post-war era. Gone were the fat fenders and running boards. Everything was tucked in within a sleek styling, and that made the model stand out from the crowd. You may have seen it features in certain Hollywood gangster films, but the chances of you seeing one on the road are pretty slim. That is because there are only around five-hundred working editions in the world today.
Having learned a little about the most successful Ford cars of all time, we hope you will now consider that manufacturer when looking to update your ride. There are plenty of old editions you can pick up for next to nothing, but even the latest models come with a fair and reasonable price tag. Ford employs experts you can trust, and their cars have an amazing reliability record.
