  • The Cars You Always Promised Yourself Collector’s Edition

    By Steve Saxty

    The two finest Ford books ever written.  This exclusive set pairs them together in boxed slipcases with unique cover artwork. Both books are signed and numbered by the author.  One comes with an extra chapter, poster and the other additionally signed by legendary engineer Rod Mansfield. 

    The Cars You Always Promised Yourself – Collector's edition is a very special version of a unique book about Ford's exceptional vehicles and glamorous coupes that covers 50 years of Ford’s design, engineering and marketing that focusses on the Capri.

    Ford gave the author unique access to their secret design archives and he spoke to many of Ford’s legendary leaders from the ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s. Former Ford chairman Bob Lutz, famous design director Patrick le Quément and Rod Mansfield - the leader of Special Vehicle Engineering - have all written forewords. Over 85 per cent of the hundreds of images have never been seen before; design sketches, prototypes and wind tunnel models and previously-secret prototypes of the Capri are all there.

    The Collector's Edition is the book you always promised yourself and contains many extra features over the Standard Edition:

    • Individually numbered and signed by the author, making it instantly collectable
    • Large-format full-colour slipcase box with unique cover art of the feature cars
    • Fold-out poster – specially-commissioned hand-drawn illustration of the featured 15 most collectable Fords, including 5 Capris
    • Over 300 pages, including an extended-length additional chapter
      • Designer Patrick le Quément explains his love of stripes and why they worked on the Capri so well.
      • Unique illustrations featuring the most collectable fast Fords, RS1700T, Sierra Cosworth, RS500, Capri 3000GT XLR, Capri RS3100, Capri Injection, Tickford, 280 and more
      • Designers mark up the beautiful artwork of the cars – the standard and most collectable. Read the back story behind their design.
    • The largest, most detailed and collectable book on the Capri that will be ever published.
