Thanks to Doug for forwarding this link to some recent photos of Ford of Britain's classic vehicle collection. At one time Ford had a limited access museum on the grounds at Dagenham. It was closed in the early 2000s due to budget cuts, but it is good to see the collection is still exist (and is growing) and being preserved for the future.

As some of you may know, Ford UK has it's own collection of old Fords.
I believe these cars used to be on show at Ford's Dagenham plant, when they were still producing new cars there. When the production at Dagenham was scaled down (only diesel engine production there these days), the car collection was more or less mothballed. This collection is not open to the public as such, but Ford uses some of the cars for publicity purposes (new car launches, car shows, magazines, etc).

Here's a link to some photos taken by a guy who was fortunate enough to get inside for a while just recently.

Enjoy!

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

The Heritage Motor Centre in England has a few EnFos on a long term loan display now. http://archive.heritage-motor-centre.co.uk/exhibitions_car_collections.html

I believe that the collection is still in Dagenham, they want me to take my Anglia 105E there as it is so original. A friend of mine goes there regularly as he knows the guys who look after the vehicles. Recently they had the works rally driver, Mikko Hirvonen visit there and they went to the McDonalds drive through in the Model T! He apparently loved the place and spent the whole day there which isn't surprising as back home in Finland he owns Mk1 Cortinas and Anglias. I hope to got here next year.
