Footnotes

  • Introduced in May 1932 priced at £120, the new Ford 8hp saloon set new standards for cars in its class. Well-equipped and comfortable, Ford's new 'Model 19Y' baby featured all-steel bodywork, a ruggedly built 933cc sidevalve engine producing 22bhp - an output good enough to push the car along at over 60mph - and a three-speed gearbox with synchromesh on the top two gears. The design was improved year by year yet Ford managed to reduce the price to just £100 in October 1935, by which time the Model Y had been renamed 'Popular'. Production continued until 1937 when the new Ford Eight arrived. The latter used the existing engine in a larger and more modern looking body that afford the occupants greater room, though at the cost of increased weight. In 1939 the 8hp Ford was revised yet again, becoming the Anglia, in which form it continued in production after WW2.
    None of this Eight's history is known prior to its purchase by the vendor from an elderly local man in 1996. The engine was removed from the car as the prelude to an intended restoration but the project never went any further. Offered for restoration/spares, the car comes with Swansea V5 document and is sold strictly as viewed. No reserve.
