Classic US Motorsport - Ford Archive Gems Download - Description

This staggering collection of films from the Ford archives creates a unique and fascinating study of American motoring and racing. Three films from the vaults of the legendary car-maker are brought together for this instalment in the Ford Archive Gems series.

 Zero to Sixty is a simply stunning trip through the history of cars and motorsport in the United States. From early competitions for ‘horseless carriages’ – including footage of the 1906 Vanderbilt Cup – to race action from the iconic Indianapolis 500 and film from the classic Sebring 12-hour events of the 1950s and 1960.

 Won for All is a must-see documentary for any motorsport enthusiast or NASCAR fan, an incredible insight into the preparation and race action from the 1963 Daytona 500. The film offers unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to the build-up as legends of US racing, including AJ Foyt and Dan Gurney, prepare for this all-American spectacular.

 The collection also includes Hot Rod Galahads, an unusual 1952 profile of the teenage American members of the Ramblers Road Club – a group of young men brought together by a love for modifying cars and testing their machines, and own grit, at organised drag events. Shattering the romanticised image of the hot rod rebel, these clean-cut teens are sponsored by the Florida police!
