1950 FORD PREFECT
The 10 h.p. Ford Prefect is a somewhat larger version of the 8 h.p. Anglia, with a four-door saloon body, but has a similar economical fuel consumption and useful maximum speed.
The Prefect is also in the lower price range of British cars and appears to offer extremely good value for money.
