Description

This car is in auction on THE MARKET by Bonhams website. The auction is LIVE now. The price shown is the lower estimate.

All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.

This stylish example is one of those rarer export market models in a UK specification and featuring the steering wheel on the right-hand side. Not too much is known about the car’s early life in the UK. Prior to its current ownership, however, the car was understood to have been part of a twenty-car collection based in the North of England. Part of the collection for around twenty years, it was believed to have been hardly used during that time.

Presumably it was for that reason that the car came up for auction with Bonhams MPH at Bicester Heritage in 2020. At that stage the car was listed as an older restoration and was showing an odometer reading of 1,487.

The winning bidder was Cliff, the current owner. “It was during the Covid lockdown period, so I was unable to view the car,” confesses Cliff. Despite that he was pleased with the car when it arrived with no major surprises in store. “I’ve always had older cars throughout my life,” says Cliff. “When I was younger my uncle had a Ford V8 just like this one which was why this one appealed to me,” he remembers.

Being a fastidious custodian Cliff soon set about addressing a couple of areas he felt could be improved on the car. In 2020 he had the car converted to a 12-volt electrical system, which is no minor endeavour in a car of this vintage, and earlier this year, after little success in getting the original flathead V8 running smoothly, he had a completely restored and rebuilt V8 fitted.

Cliff has reconciled himself to now parting with the 1935 Ford. With the odometer now reading 1,827 miles it is clear that Cliff isn’t getting sufficient use out of the car due to a variety of personal circumstances.

For much more description and photos see THE MARKET by Bonhams website.
