The pretty convertible Touring version of the Ford Model ‘C’ joined the saloons in mid 1935. The 10hp tourer (hence the Ford 10 moniker) utilised the same 3 speed gearbox, body styling and panels as the saloon car. The 1172cc Touring used an enlarged version of the Model ‘Y’ side valve engine. Suspension was by the Ford system of transverse leaf springs and rigid axles, little changed since the Model T. The De Luxe Model “CX” tourer sold only 1795 cars before its demise on 1 March 1937.

Understood to be just 1 of 6 to survive, it remains a very attractive car. ‘RD7970’ has been subject to an older restoration and was later subject to mechanical work in 2014 with the radiator overhauled in 2005. Accompanied by the original sales brochure, a collection of invoices, MoT certificates, original repair manual, and period logbook the Ford has been maintained by the current vendor since 2000. The subject of previous magazine features and articles in club publications ‘RD7970’ still retains its original registration number. The vendor currently grades the bodywork, engine, electrical equipment, paintwork, transmission and interior trim all as ‘good’. A rare opportunity.
