Home of Retro is very proud to bring you this Official Ford Cortina 1970s Mens White T-Shirt from the Home of Retro Originals range.
Ford’s heritage stretches all the way back to the genesis of automobiles with the iconic Ford Model T. Cementing themselves into automotive legend in the 60s with the Mustang, the hits kept coming with the much loved Capri in the 70s and 80s. Here at Home of Retro we reserve our biggest affection for the imperious “Hot Hatchbacks” of the 80s with the Fiesta XR2i and the Escort RS Cosworth.
We are incredibly excited to have partnered with Ford to bring you this exclusive and striking clothing range celebrating the very best of the classic and retro heritage of Ford!

Always read the care label before washing to ensure your new garment looks perfect every time you wear it.
Machine wash at 30° (unless otherwise stated) taking care to turn your item inside out before washing, this will prevent damage to the prints and any embellishment or diamantes.
You can wash at a lower temperature but do not exceed the temperature limit!
Wash with similar colours.
Do not use detergent which contains bleach.
Please be aware that delicate treatments or prints e.g. Glitter/foil prints, may lose some colour or finish with washing, this is to be expected and just helps to add to the vintage design of your garment.
Do not tumble dry garments unless it is indicated on the care label that it is safe to do so.
Iron your item inside out using a very low temperature, taking care to avoid any printed/embellished areas.
Please note, the majority of our clothes are either Screen Printed or Transfer Printed. Both prints are intended to develop more character as they survive endless wear and tear. The ink on a screen printed garment is printed deep into the grain of the fabric so your item will age gracefully over time whereas a transfer print will gradually fade and crack with wear. This is entirely normal and just helps add to the vintage nature of your garment.
A lot of our garments are treated with vintage washes and so variations in shading and texture are to be expected. This just adds to the uniqueness of your item as no two will be exactly the same and is in no way to be considered defective.

Celebrate the cars of your youth!
Buying your first car is a rite of passage and you always look back on your first old banger with great fondness, regardless of how bad it was. There have been some truly amazing cars built over the years, but no car manufacturer has managed iconic cars through the ages as much as Ford.
To commemorate these iconic vehicles, Home of Retro has launched a brand new clothing line featuring classic images of the cars of your youth on a selection of vests and t-shirts. You might not be able to afford the retro car, but you can certainly celebrate its retro image.
Ford’s iconic creations of the 1960s
During the swinging Sixties, the Ford plant in Dagenham started production on the Ford Cortina, which in 1967 became Britain’s best-selling car. It held this title for nine out of ten years between 1972 and 1981, narrowly being outsold by the Ford Escort in 1976. The Cortina had several facelifts over the years but its design was always recognisable as a Cortina. Such was its popularity that The Clash even referenced the Ford Cortina in their song Janie Jones and the car was used frequently in the Carry On films.
The other great Ford invention of the 60s was the Ford Transit van. And it’s still going strong 51 years later, accounting for 25 per cent of van sales in 2015. It has served many purposes over the years, but is most commonly recognised for its ‘White Van Man’ associations.
1970s cool, Ford style
Back to the cool kids on the block, when you think about other cool motors from the 70s it doesn’t take long for the iconic Capri to cruise into view with its fluffy dice dangling from the rear view mirror. The Capri was known as ‘the car you always promised yourself’ and was designed to bridge the gap between a sporty little two seater and a sensible family saloon! It meant that you could still cart the kids around but be stylish and fun at the same time. The inspiration for the Capri came from Ford of America’s popular muscle car, the Mustang (which is still hugely successful and actually has a right hand drive model coming to the UK soon). The Capri became synonymous with 70s cool and despite ceasing production in 1986, still continues to have a cult following. Prices are pretty steep nowadays so it can be hard to get your hands on one.
Enter the boy racer
In the 80s and 90s, the Escort and Fiesta revved things up a gear and the era of the Boy Racer was born! The previous ‘sensible’ models were replaced with ‘souped up’ versions. Model variations came with Xs in their names, adorned with spoilers and big exhaust pipes. Loud music emanating from the rolled down windows was a prerequisite. Nothing said youth back then like a Ford Fiesta or Escort… good times!
So let the good times roll again. The perfect Father’s Day gift just landed for the Ford fan in your life. Shop the collection.
