Ford advertised the Twin-Cam using the slogan, ‘Any colour as long as its white’, which was an ironic Model T reference. All were built near Liverpool in Ford’s Halewood factory alongside less exotic Escorts and the single colour policy was instigated to minimise factory disruption.
Oddly, export market CKD kits were made in other colours but the car modelled is the only non-white UK market example. It was first registered on November 20th, 1968 to Mr Howard F. Colling of Ardleigh Green, Hornchurch, Essex, probably through local dealer Dagenham Motors. It’s not known whether he specifically ordered Blue Mink, then a current Ford colour, or whether it was produced because of a factory error.
