This lovely old Ford was fully assembled on the 1st July 1955 at the Doncaster Briggs Works, Yorkshire. The original registration book ( Log Book ) indicates that the car was first registered to Mr Reginald Peach of Coventry on 8th October 1955. The car is original and we are told that the mileage is correct however due to its age we are unable to confirm this.

The annual licence fee for the radio was 20 shillings. Other extras included trafficators, Oil bath air cleaner, Oil vapour discharge pipe, Package tray, Windscreen washer, External oil cleaner unit. The Ford starts on the button and drove extremely well on a short test drive. Now converted to 12 volt and with a new dynamo just fitted. Absolutely any inspection is welcome.
