Established by Dave Colledge in 2001 from a love of classic Fords, Retroford has grown into a company that offers a huge range of components for your Classic Ford.
Dave qualified in engineering after a 4-year engineering apprenticeship and has worked as design engineer for several companies, but has always owned, modified and had a passion for early Fords.
Dave’s interest in Ford’s started early. Introduced to them by his Dad, John Colledge, who worked at Broadspeed in Birmingham during the 60’s.
The idea of Retroford was spawned during the time Dave was restoring his now legendary ‘Signal Red’ MK2 estate. When a friend offered Dave a Zetec he wasn’t using for a kit car project, Dave took this opportunity to try something different. Designing, fabricating and developing parts that weren’t available, or of inferior quality to install the Zetec. Once completed, Dave was approached by many others wishing to do the same with their classic Fords.
