This very rare 1938 Ford 8 (7Y) 4 seater family car was produced for just a few months between 1937 and 1939 before the outbreak World War II closed down production. It has an 850cc side-valve engine, cable brakes and 6 volt electrical system. It was the actual vehicle used by the station carpenter at RAF Elvington during World War II, travelling to and from Howden throughout the period. This is the “deluxe” model having chrome around the air vents and bonnet plus a covered spare wheel. It has running boards and 4 opening side and front windows. After the war Ford began to make a similar though plainer model, the called the “Popular” with a four door version called the “Prefect”. The “sit up and beg” version of the Popular continued until 1959. This vehicle still runs and operates.
