Super Ford was published by John Paradise with an address at 188 Ovid St, Seneca Falls, NY. Later it was in the old Kibbey Machine building at 172 Fall St. The same company had previously published Super Ford Parts Exchange, a small classified ads publication listing cars and parts for sale.
Super Ford was a full-sized format magazine and focused on Ford performance cars. Content featured more modern Ford vehicles, restorations and technical tips. When it was first published, there weren't many Ford-centric titles published. Mustang Monthly had just started several months before, so Ford enthusiasts were very excited about this publication. It was considered more technically oriented than other titles.
Note that numbering carried over from Super Ford Parts Exchange. Also, in mid-1983 the publisher dropped reference to the month and year on the cover page, and instead only referenced the volume and serial number. This practice continued until the title was sold.
Mr. Paradise sold the title to Larry Dobbs and his Dobbs Publishing Group in Lakeland, Florida in 1987. The title was again sold by Dobbs to Petersen Publishing in April, 1998 as part of a larger transaction involving eight titles.
After the sale to Petersen, it was published continuously through August, 2000 when it was folded into Petersen's 5.0 Mustang title to create a new title, 5.0 Mustang & Super Fords.
Super Ford provided monthly net paid circulation data to Gale Research starting in 1988. Before the title was sold to Dobbs Publishing, it had a net paid monthly circulation of about 7,800. Under Dobbs Publishing, it increased to an average of 10,400.
There were 241 issues printed from January, 1980 through August, 2000. All cover images are complete.
