FORD C/CX TEN

Tourer, Tudor saloon, Fordor saloon.

Most efficient Family Ten (70mph, 35mpg) of its period, and compact, too (147ins length). Styling's scaled-down V8-48 without the running-boards, wheels are wire and brakes and suspension the only weak points, though chassis also has rust area under scuttle. Barrel-sided tourer (from June '35) very collectable and rare. CX (Oct '35 to Mar '37) distinguishable by horizontal chromium strips on grille and bonnet louvres.
