Ford 300E van.
More information on this Ford:
It was while visiting a small village in North Wales that I took this photograph of a 300E Thames van in the early 1990s. It had obviously lain there some time but could have donated parts to other 300Es that were being restored I bet. The 300E was available as both a 5cwt and 7cwt commercial vehicle.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Ford above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular 300E van would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Ford 300E van, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the 300E van, and similar old Fords, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
