Retro Classics Issue 42 July to September 2021

As always, we’ve a diverse selection of fast classics for you to peruse, with this issue’s cover going to a Ford Escort Mk2 rally car that’s been the ten-year dream project for its two owners.

After putting a con-rod out of the original crossflow back in 2009, they’ve rebuilt their precious competition car with a twin-cam Toyota 4AGE on Jenvey throttle bodies, six-linked rear end and a host of other upgrades, and are itching to get back out on the stages.

An absolutely stunning 1975 Toyota Celica also features in this issue, the result of a whole lot of metal fabrication work by its skilful owner.

The MG Midget we bring you isn’t the cute roadster you’re familiar with, as it’s much modified beneath with space-frame construction, radically altered engine position and 125bhp A-series power.

The Zetec-powered Mk2 Fiesta ‘XRZ’ is a beautifully-built example that’s now the first retro classic of an enthusiastic young owner, while a funky sixties Plymouth Belvedere police cruiser and a now-rare Nissan Primera P10 SRi round out another very varied issue.  

With a detailing guide to help you rejuvenate your car’s plastic trim, a look back at the quirky car ads of decades past and a buyer’s guide on the iconic Ford Cortina Mk3, there’s plenty to get your teeth into in this issue of Retro Classics.
