1951 Ford 10hp Pick-up Truck
Registration no. KDT 977
Chassis no. 0639515
Engine no. C1745133P
Introduced for 1939 and offered in a variety of body styles, the Prefect continued post-war as a four-door saloon, two-door saloon (export only) and a pick-up truck, the latter being especially popular in Australia where such vehicles are referred to as ‘utes’ - short for ‘utility vehicles’. Powered by an 1,172cc sidevalve four coupled to a three-speed gearbox, the 10hp Prefect’s performance was comparable with the best in its class, 60mph being bettered flat-out, with a fuel consumption of around 35 miles per gallon achievable on longer runs. Re-styled for 1949 with wing-integrated headlamps and a revised bonnet and radiator grille, the Prefect continued in production until 1953, by which time the staggering total of over 350,000 had been built.
This Ford pick-up was fully restored in 2002/03, being stripped back to a bare chassis frame, sandblasted and repainted. The cab was fully refurbished with new steel wherever necessary, all the mechanicals rebuilt and a new drop-side rear body constructed by the vendor - a professional joiner. Presented in very good condition, this charming early-1950s commercial vehicle possesses considerable potential for period-set film and television work and is offered with MoT/road fund licence to March 2005 and Swansea V5 registration document.
