Im­per­fect Pre­fect

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

I am old. Old enough to have been heav­ily en­gaged in the mo­tor­ing scene in the 1950s and, to me, the 107E Ford Pre­fect meant a car with the new Ford Anglia’s en­gine and gear­box, not the old 1172cc side­valve unit and three-speed gear­box. So I think young Nick Larkin got it wrong in his 1950s Cars You Can Af­ford To Love ( CCW 20 Jan­uary). Not the first time he has, I think, but never mind – I am a fan, and Nick’s got petrol in his blood. Ron Watts, King’s Lynn, Nor­folk We think you’ll find Nick did men­tion 1959’s fit­ment of the new OHV en­gine in the 107E in his piece – Ed.
