Ford Australia president and CEO Bob Graziano said Ford was excited to be working with Rare Spares to help keep those iconic Fords on the road.

“Under this new agreement, Rare Spares are able to help enthusiasts restore their classic vehicles to their former glory and continue to pay tribute to Ford Australia’s heritage,” Graziano said.
