Retro Classics Magazine (Issue 42) July – September 2021
The July to September 2021 issue of Retro Classics Classics is now on sale at good newsagents nationwide, or direct from us by ordering online with FREE POSTAGE. 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, so don’t miss out – get your copy at any good newsagent, or click here to order your copy online, with FREE POSTAGE on the island of Ireland!
