While the Ford Heritage Vault will certainly be a treat for enthusiasts and collectors, the fact that the company is also offering brochures, press and sales literature will prove to be of great help for restorers and old Ford car owners. Details like – available factory options, correct colours, badge placement, interior configurations, and more, will be a great resource to them.
