    At last...

    Target: £2,000.00
    Raised so far: £2,015.37

    Just posted the money raised from the last husky rally.

    And just sold the Disco I'd wanted to get driven out to The Gambia.

    Should still be a bit more to come, two of the ladeez in my life have yet to contribute.



    Unfortunately they don't look in here so this isn't going to generate any female guilt.

    Thats not a Squire, thats an 100E Escort...
    Squire had wood panelling on the side

    quote from Ford annals >>>
    The 100E Anglia was produced in October 1953 and terminated in September 1959 with 345841 units built (all 100E Anglia models were two door). In December 1953 the 100E Prefect was produced (a deluxe model with 4 doors) to continue through to September 1959 with 255655 units built. In July 1954 the 300E Thames van was produced, using the front end in common to the car, but a panel van rear, in 5cwt and 7cwt carry capacities, through to April 1961 with a total production of 196885 units, by far the majority being 300E Thames 5cwt model. Using the similar panels the 100E Squire Estate Car was launched in September 1955 offering the same trim as the current Prefect de-luxe model, to continue through to September 1959 with a production of 17812 units. A few days after the launch of the Squire the 100E Escort Estate Car was available with a lower specification to the Squire and this model continued in production until April 1961 with a production of 33131 units. With the introduction of the 105E Anglia and 107E Prefect, Ford continued to offer a base variant model with the 100E Popular (2 door model only) from August 1959 through to June 1962 with a production of 126115 units. The production figures and model type availability offered by Ford amply explain the success of the Ford 100E sidevalve motor, they have characteristics which remain with previous owners and users. They may be half a century old, but they are still capable of being used as transport on a regular basis. Although many have succumbed to rusting away, there are still good examples worthy of maintaining and using. Although some items are very scarce, a great majority of parts and spares for restoration and maintenance are available from ourselves by mail order.

    Dad's said Squire on the registration document, but I don't remember it having the wood panels. It might have had them originally...


    ...he always called it a Squire though, I assumed he knew what it was as he was very vehicle oriented, built himself a Ford 8 from bits, had a Brough Superior (although by the time he got it, it had been rebored so often one of the barrels disintegrated, so he put an Indian V-twin engine in it instead). He also had a Neracar frame in his workshop, never found out why...


    I still say he had a Squire though.

    I just spotted this thread David.... a Giant well done from me

    It's a lot of money and I know it wasn't hard raising that amount.
