FORD AF/A

Roadster, 2-door touring, 4-door touring, fixed-head coupé, cabriolet, Tudor sedan, Fordor sedan.

Splendid go-anywhere hack with the good old Ford transverse springing, lots of ground clearance, 40bhp (the small-bore AF had rather less power), and a three-speed 'box with lovely change. Brakes less than brilliant: '30s will have ribbon radiator shells, tell a '31 by the painted inserts on this. Later slant-windshield bodies not marketed here, though the much-prized 2-door De Luxe Phaeton was.
