Lot 252 - 1937 Ford Popular 103E
|Result||Sold - £5,886|
- From a private collection
- Extensively restored
- Current ownership for 27 years
Rather than ditch the pre-war designed cars altogether, the brains at Ford decided that they still needed a cut-price new car offering to undercut the boxy 100E. It was a simple set-up, much of the chrome disappeared, the dashboard, as a Bakelite unit, also went and it became, because of its now much reduced price, highly desirable.
Today the Ford 103E, as with all the small sidevalve Fords, continues to be a sound choice for classic car ownership. Spares are still readily available from various marque specialists, and its reliability is legendary.
This charming example has been in the same ownership for 27 years and has been maintained very well throughout this time. In very good condition, it comes complete with various sundry invoices, old registration documents, previous MoT test certificates and the current UK registration document. An affordable and extremely useable classic, this example which is offered at no reserve, should be keenly contested at auction.
