The first Ford sold in the UK was the Model A; It proved popular and by 1911 over 400 US-built examples of the marque were being purchased per annum from premises in London's Shaftsbury Avenue. A disused carriage works at Trafford Park Manchester was then acquired, from where Model Ts were assembled for the ensuing 20 years. The famous Dagenham plant came into being in 1931, the first car product of which was the Model Y. Powered by a 933cc four-cylinder sidevalve engine it was available in Two- or Four-Door guise and, in base specification, was the only Saloon available for £100.
This highly presentable four-door Model Y, 'AHK 802' vacated the Essex factory in 1933. Finished in maroon over black, trimmed in blood red and riding on matching painted wire wheels; the vehicle comes complete with a comprehensive history file, UK V5C, numerous invoices, MOT certificates dating back to 1980, together with numerous spare parts (as photographed). A lot worthy of close inspection and perhaps the most affordable way into pre-war 'VSCC' motoring.
