Infographic: Ford's journey through British history

Ford is one of the most iconic motoring brands in British history, and it was a sad moment when the company ended more than 100 years of vehicle manufacturing in the UK in 2013.

But the company had some sparkling times in the 110 years after three Model As arrived in 1903, becoming a staple of the British way of life during the sinking of the Titanic, the reigns of several monarchs, and even an English world cup win.

By 1913 the company’s Model T was the country’s biggest selling car; in 1946 Ford’s Dagenham factory alone made 115,000 vehicles; names such as the Escort, Anglia, and Fiesta became legendary in the fifties, sixties and seventies; and the company also made its mark in the agricultural world.
