1961 Ford Prefect 107E

Purchased recently but due to ill health, must offered for sale again; very presentable little car with few previous keepers; showing 74,500 miles which is believed to be correct

By the late 1950s Ford were looking to the future with the ground-breaking Anglia on the drawing board, yet needed a stop-gap model to keep sales buoyant. The result was the 107E of 1959, a successful combination of old and new styles.

This late 1961 example would no doubt have been a well suited family saloon back in the day. How things have changed when one sees what families need these days!

Our vendor has known this car since the early 1990s and has in fact owned it twice. Having been dry stored for a considerable time, it is in impressive order and not full of rot as these early Fords were prone to do.

The photographs showing you the boot demonstrate how tidy it really is. We understand it is running and driving but might need some light tinkering before any substantial journey. The smart paintwork is surprisingly good and our vendor is genuinely sad to let her go but due to ill health, a new owner must be found.

The registration number is transferable, which is nice if you are that way inclined, or simply buy and use the car as intended, these 107Es go so much better than their appearance suggests thanks to their peppy 997cc ohv engines - making a practical alternative to its main competitor at the time, the Morris 1000..
