Similar to the Y 8hp Saloon.

The first true European Ford, and inspiration for the Morris 8. Transverse suspension and mechanical brakes, but a three speed syncromesh gearbox, proper boot and mechanical fuel feed. Capable of almost 60mph. Pre 1933 car recognised by their slanted screens, tapering radiator grilles, unskirted wings and eight slat bonnet sides covers.
