Classic Motorsports – Ford Archive Gems DVD


Ford Motor Company


This fascinating collection of films the Detroit vaults of Ford provides a unique insight into the obsession with speed, performance and success that has been a driving force in the development of the car since the first Model T rolled off the production line.

‘Zero to Sixty’ is a breakneck trip through the first sixty, or so, years of cars and motorsport in the United States. From early competitions for ‘horseless carriages’ – including footage of the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup – to race action from the Indy 500 and Sebring in 1960.

‘Won for All’ is a must-see documentary for any motorsport enthusiast or NASCAR fan; an incredible insight into the preparation and race action from the 1963 Daytona 500. The film offers unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the build-up as legends like AJ Foyt and Dan Gurney prepare for this all-American spectacular.

The collection concludes with ‘Hot Rod Galahads,’ an unusual 1952 profile of the teenage members of the Ramblers Road Club. Unusually this gang of young gearheads take part in drag events sponsored by the Florida police!
