Your Automatic Choice 1961 - Ford Zephyr & Zodiac
It's tempting to think of automatic transmission as a modern invention, but
it isn't. This film, made by renowned film-maker Bill Mason, was
commissioned by Ford 50 years ago to promote the auto option they were
offering on the Zephyr and Zodiac range of cars. It gives a simple
explanation of how the auto-box works, and then gives a tutorial on how to
use it, finishing by asking "Who on earth wanted a third pedal anyway?"
Two at the Top 1971 - Ford Granada launch film
When Ford chose to replace the enormous Mk IV Zodiac and Zephyr range, they
took a massive leap forwards with the new Granada and its cheaper brother,
the Consul. Smaller than its forebear, it was lighter, faster, and smarter. This is a shortened
version of the launch film for both cars, and shows how high Ford were
aiming with this car in terms of the cars it was competing with.

ahead of producing this exciting new family car.

This film shows the sport of Rallycross that was just starting to grow in
popularity in1968. Not only does it feature some of rally's big names of
the time, including Hannu Mikkola and Roger Clarke, but there are also a
number of incredibly rare Ford Capris 4x4s competing. These cars were only
built for evaluation purposes, and used the Fergusson 4x4 system as fitted
to the Jensen FF. In addition, there is a small amount of a Formula Ford
race held as part of the same event, and a children's pedal car race. This
is a period film with a hallmark late 60s music track -- one for the 60s
devotees and motorsport fans.
