Pretty rare, but in pieces it'll put a lot of people off sadly.

It does seem the interest in cars that are part restored, or taken apart, is getting less and less. Are people richer or do people think they do not have the skills?
For me it usually has been a means of buying the car I want, restored or very good examples being too expensive.

The 'beauty' of the English small Fords [Y, 7Y, CX, pops, prefects & anglias, not forgetting the small vans & pickups] is.......they were all assembled very simply & easily.

Everything, bodywise, pretty much can bolt on....front inner panels, nose cone, bonnets, wings rear wings etc etc....all hold no fears for anyone who might make a decent fist of a No.10 Meccano set!
The chassis is sound & simple, as is the running gear...plenty of trade support, and the marvelous Ford Sidevalve Owners Club...and its stores.

Even if originality proves difficult, stuff from later [post war?] models can be made to fit...to make the vehicle useable.
Cheaply made, yet soundly engineered..that was [for me[ Ford's trademark.

Can't say the same for post 1960's Fords, however....but that's just a personal, non-rational view.

They are very straightforward cars and the inter-changable parts between models is a large plus point.
I do also agree with a point earlier, cars that require re-assembly or further restoration are less sellable. A lot of people these days just don't want the work or hassle.
