A car made by the British division of the Ford Motor Company, built between 1938-1959 (not including the period of World War 2
). It was basically a four door version of the sit up and beg Ford Popular, which like its two-door counterpart, is popular on the hot rod circuit since the 1960's. It was lightweight, rear wheel drive and mechanically simple.
The Second incarnation was the 100E, which bore a resemblance to scaled down 1955 Chevrolet. A more advanced design that used a monocoque construction and a McPherson Strut front suspension. However, it still used the outdated flathead (sidevalve) engine that was in production until the early 1960's. It was replaced by the Ford Anglia 105E in 1959.
