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. Re-styled for 1949 with wing-integrated headlamps and a revised bonnet and radiator grille, the 'upright' Prefect continued in production until 1953 when it was replaced with the new-look 100E version, although the dependable sidevalve engine and three-speed 'box were retained. Of unitary construction and equipped with MacPherson Strut independent front suspension, the new Prefect was also available as the 'Squire' estate car, initially with timber embellishments to the sides.

    Offered for sale by a private collection, this rare Ford estate car was restored in Ireland in 2016 by NVD of New Ross, County Wexford. MoTs on file reveal minimal use in recent years, the recorded mileage total rising from 8,725 in 2001 to 8,746 in 2017. The car is offered with a V5C document, and it should be noted that it is still registered in the last keeper's name.
