1959-1961 FORD Prefect 107E specifications


The exciting new Anglia 105E of 1959 brought a revolution to small Fords... but not, unfortunately, four doors. So, for those who wanted the practicality of a four-door car and the innovation of an overhead valve engine but weren’t that bothered about fashion-conscious looks, there was the Prefect 107E. Effectively, this was the four-door 100E shape fitted with the 105E’s overhead valve engine and four-speed transmission, plus some plusher touches than had been the case on previous 100Es. Two-tone paintwork was standard.
