    Ford has started a image archive website where you can view & purchase prints of all sorts of images from Ford's long history. They even have a Hot Rod section on the website. Ford will be adding more images to the archive in the future. I highly suggest checking in out!

    Here's a link: http://ford.artehouse.com/perl/home.pl

    They should have an option to buy the rights to use the images for commercial purposes.

    They do on the link posted above.
     
  11. Unfortunately, they are priced as works of art, not as commercial photos from decades ago.

  12. Cool site!

    Those prices may be part of an overall strategy and why Ford is profitable again. Not sure how it will work for the brand in the long-run, though...
    (BTW, Chevron Cars coloring pages are free ;-)

    The prints are a bit pricey, but I just like the site to see all of the cool old images.

    Neat pictures...but I'm sorry, paying almost $60 for a 11x18 is outrageous!

    Is this website actually run by Ford, or is it run by an aftermarket company licensed by Ford?

    There are some neat photos, although they are pricey - however, like any other enterprise I imagine they are charging what the market will bear.

    GM has a similar site for photos: http://www.gmphotostore.com/

    A bunch of the T-bird photos credited to David Newhardt are from photo shoots done for the second book I authored, "Thunderbird 50 Years," back in 2003. Not really "vintage" or Ford-produced photography.
