Ford Model Y

On Display

The best selling Ford Model Y accounted for 40% of sales in the important 8hp taxation class during the mid 1930s. In 1935 the Popular name was adopted and it became the first, and only, four-seater saloon to be sold for £100. Over 157,000 Model Ys were built between 1932 and 1937.

The Ford Model Y was the replacement for the Model A on the UK market, sales of which had fallen dramatically in the economic depression. Designed in Ford’s US headquarters at Dearborn in just five months between October 1931 and February 1932, the Model Y entered production at Dagenham in August 1932. Morris Motors built a virtual copy with its Eight of 1935. The Model Y had a number of derivatives and the same basic car was still being built as the 103E Popular as late as 1959.
