The alliance sees the formation of Ford Restoration Parts by Rare Spares, a program where Ford will supply Rare Spares with access to original Ford tooling to manufacture and sell officially licensed restoration parts in Australia.
Models catered for under the program stretch from the first 1960 XK Ford Falcon (pictured above) through to the 1984 XF Falcon.
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.
Classic car enthusiasts will have access to authentic Ford badges, decals, wheel caps and trims, windows, door and boot seal rubbers, engine and cooling components, electrical components, lamps and lenses.
Rare Spares general manager David Rayner said both Ford Australia and Rare Spares recognised the importance of keeping the heritage of Ford products alive.
“We are very excited to work with Ford’s engineers and sales staff to continue helping Ford enthusiasts live their dreams of owning and restoring classic Fords,” Rayner said.
Rare Spares is the only official license holder for Ford restoration parts in the Southern Hemisphere.
