SUMMARY

Undoubtedly one of the nicest examples of Ford's post-war Pilot on offer today.

DESCRIPTION

  • Based on the pre-War Model 62, the Pilot was the first post-war British Ford
  • 81bhp 3,622cc V8 coupled to a 'three on the tree' manual transmission
  • The previous keeper owned this Pilot from 1979 until 2021. During that time the car was fully restored and cherished
  • Finished in gleaming Ford Black with a Caramel leather interior and 'whitewall' tyres
  • The V8 was rebuilt by the previous owner along with a new wiring loom
  • The interior was also retrimmed leaving nothing left to do apart from simply enjoy it
  • Fitted with Marchal high-performance headlights which in themselves carry a £2,000 price tag
  • A simply delightful example of a new model that, in 1949, would have been the envy of many
