Picture of Popular from Ford

Ford Popular.

More information on this Ford:

I am not sure which sidevalve Ford we have here - most likely it is a Prefect E493A or a 103E Popular. The small size of the front brake drums preclude it being a 10cwt commercial. The photograph was taken at Nuttalls yard near Sheffield in 1994.

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 Popular would be much appreciated.

All the photos, including this picture of an old Ford Popular, 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 Popular, and similar old Fords, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
