FORD V8-81

Fordor sedan, club cabriolet, estate car.

Mechanics much as '37, and that year's banjo-style steering wheel retained. Sedans now fastback, though only trunkbacks had been sold by Dagenham, 1936/7. All cars to American De Luxe specification: the US 'Standard' (last year's sheet metal) not offered in Britain, any more than was the 2.2-litre option.
