Ford V8 Pilot in Ludlow Green with light tan leather interior. 

The Ford Pilot Model E71A was built by Ford UK from August 1947 to 1951. During the period of manufacture 22,155 cars were produced.The Pilot was the first large post-war British Ford. It was based on the pre-war 22 hp Model 62 , and was initially offered with the 2227 cc side-valve engine.These initial engines were Canadian-made surplus stock from wartime production of Bren gun carriers. The engine was soon replaced, and most Pilots were fitted with a 3622 cc, 90 hp flathead V8 engine, having a stroke of 92.25 mm and bore of 79 mm with single Solex carburettor. This engine was also used in Thames trucks. The car retained 6-volt electrics. The car was fitted with a gear lever on the steering column, operating a three speed gearbox, and steering was Marles  worm and roller. The car was evidently seen as rather old-fashioned even at the time, but its front brakes were hydraulically controlled.The rear brakes were cable-operated.

The Ford V8 Pilot offered here is described by the vendor as a very presentable example finished in Ludlow Green with light tan leather interior. This is an older restoration with a lovely patina and the 3622cc V8 engine starts on the button, runs silky smooth and is coupled to an excellent column change gearbox. Drive anywhere. The car comes with some old MOT's and current V5.
