Ford Unveils New Concepts Photos

Blue Oval’s Astonishing Concepts Through the Years

Ford Motor Co. has issued a vast quantity of highly rare pictures demonstrating remarkable designs and vintage models that hardly anyone outside the Blue Oval is aware exist.

About one hundred brand new pictures of Ford concept automobiles (encompassing 45 distinct automobiles) were recently posted to the Ford Heritage Vault. It is an electronic heaven for devotees of Ford and vehicle historians that contains more than 1,800 images from 1896 until 2021, in addition to brochures and compilations of details for these concepts.

“These are truly one of a kind,” declared Ford archivist Ted Ryan, discussing the recent images with the Detroit Free Press. He went on to explain that “the designers were given free rein to dream up what ‘could be’ rather than what was already out there. Many of the ideas that were showcased eventually made their way into production.” Ryan concluded by saying that “these are things you just can’t find anywhere else.”

Exploring the iconic Ford Seattle-ite XXI, which was crafted for the 1962 Seattle World Fair, reveals remarkable features. With its ability to feature a variety of interchangeable power packs and four manoeuvrable front wheels, one can experience either an economical 60-horsepower engine or rev up the 400-hp motor for exhilarating trips. Adding to this car’s advanced characteristics, is its travel-programming computer.

“Back in the early 1960s, Ford’s idea of a separate engine compartment that ‘could accommodate either highly sophisticated fuel cells operating electric motors or compact nuclear devices’ must have sounded like something out of a science fiction novel. But fast forward to today, and Ford now sells three electric vehicles in the US – including the popular Mustang Mach-E – that make this once-futuristic vision a reality.”

“We’ve brought some of these iconic cars, such as the Ford X-100 and Lincoln Futura, back to life after decades of absence,” Ryan proclaimed. “The Ford Heritage Vault now contains over 1,600 photos and brochures of more than 300 different concept cars from Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury, so that enthusiasts can get a better sense of what these vehicles looked like.”

We’re thankful that the 1958 Nucleon, a nuclear-powered car Ford designers envisaged traveling around 5,000 miles without recharging, never took off. The “atomic-powered” Ford was designed under the assumption that the size and weight of nuclear reactors and shielding would be reduced in the future. Although this is an interesting concept, we are thankful that it didn’t become a reality.

Had the Ford Aurora concept been realized, it is likely that station wagons would still remain popular family vehicles in this day and age. This future-oriented extended roof took interior design to unprecedented heights, boasting amenities such as an L-shaped lounge, swiveling chairs in the front, and a television – which are only a few of its distinctly “at-home” characteristics.

Stunning vehicles like the 1954 FX Atmos, 1976 Antser, Europe 021C, 1992 Bronco Boss, and the totally electrifying Ford Comuta take center stage inside the Heritage Vault. Consequently, if you’re a fan of prototype models and have some time to spare, it would be well worth your while to check out these marvelous machines! Understandably, contemporary cars crafted by Ford just don’t measure up to the sheer magnitude of awesomeness within the Heritage Vault.

  1. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
