The Ford Saxon was a concept car built by Ford of Britain in 1962.
The car was built to help Ford compete in the American coupe market but it never made it into production, the single concept being finally being flown over to the States for evaluation. It was not well received by the Ford board and was soon dismantled. Never to be seen again. The original registration number had been ERA 62.
The car its self was a cut down Mk1 Cortina, at the time in the early 60’s the Lotus Cortina was also on the radar which may have scuppered the plans.
A man from Essex, England spent sometime creating a remake using a single rear view image of the car. Using a 1964 two door Ford Cortina shell as a donor car, which was cut down by 19 inches overall. The sills were reinforced to provide strengthening as well as the addition of a heavy box section. Every panel has been modified to replicate a close profile of the original.
