1959-1962 FORD Popular/Anglia/Prefect 100E


Overview

Unitary construction reached small Fords in 1953 with the 100E models. Looking like scaled-down Consuls and Zephyrs 100Es came in basic two-door Anglia form or as the higher-spec Prefect, with four doors. Sidevalve engine technology persisted even though the all new 1172cc engine just happened to be exactly the same capacity as that in the old Anglias and Prefects. When the 105E Anglia was launched in 1959 the 100E became the Popular, a no-nonsense, low budget machine intended to lure customers away from the Mini.
