Footnotes

  • Introduced for 1939 and offered in a variety of body styles, the Prefect continued post-war as a four-door saloon only. Powered by a 1,172cc sidevalve four coupled to a three-speed gearbox, the Anglia's big brother was roomier and better suited to family motoring. Its 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. Restyled for 1949 with wing-integrated headlamps and a revised bonnet and radiator grille, the E93A Prefect continued in production until 1953, by which time the staggering total of over 350,000 had been built.
    Dating from the final year of manufacture, this well-preserved example of the 'perpendicular' Ford has had four owners and was restored in 2003. Work carried out at that time included fitting new wings, a full repaint in Ludlow Green and an interior re-trim, headlining included. Conversion to 12-volt electrics and the provision of flashing indicators (original semaphores retained and working) and has made the car more both reliable and safer to drive. Described by the vendor as in generally very good condition and said to drive well, 'YMF 869' is offered with current road fund licence, MoT to 21st March 2012 and Swansea V5 registration document.
