The Ford Motor Company was founded in 1903, when Henry Ford assembled teams of people to build cars in a small factory in the US. This developed into a concept known as assembly lines (which allowed a car to be built every 20 seconds), which meant that Ford became one of the biggest names in the car industry. The British based firm, Ford of Britain, was established in 1909, and began manufacturing cars designed away from the American based company in the 1930s. It would be a combination of British built designs, and their larger American cousins, which would see Ford become a main stay of the BTCC.
Ford did not officially enter a team in the BTCC until the 1980s, however that did not mean that the company's cars could not enter. The first Ford to be entered in 1958 was a Zephyr, run independently by David Haynes. He would be joined by other drivers using Zephyrs, as well as other Ford products such as Anglias and Prefects.
