Hale­wood (UK)

Classic Ford - - TOP TWENTY -

When Ford UK ran out of space at Da­gen­ham in the 1960s, a new fac­tory com­plex was set up at Hale­wood near Liver­pool. There were two op­er­a­tions, one a mas­sive new trans­mis­sions plant (now part-owned by ZF), and the other a mass-pro­duc­tion assem­bly plant. Anglias and Cor­sairs were then fol­lowed by Es­corts and Capris, with Hale­wood known as the home of the Es­cort from, 1968 to 2000. Clas­sic Es­corts were joined by Capris, in­clud­ing 3-litre and RS3100 types. From the 1990s Hale­wood was con­verted to build Jaguar X-Types, then Land Rovers of many types.
