More Ford news, please
In response to Rob Bryant’s letter (6 April) asking you not to talk politics, I’m happy to read CCW’s views on the possible effects on the classic car scene and markets of an exit from Europe.
I imported a 1965 Citroën Azu Fourgonnette from Alicante, Spain last September through a dealer in the Netherlands and the process was reasonably easy and straightforward.
It would be interesting to know how this work if we were no longer in the EU. Similarly, I’d welcome discussion on how EU air pollution policies would impact on non-European cars (ie British) using European roads.
If people don’t want to read about Brexit politics, then they can skip those and move straight on to plenty of
Your Letters, The Editor, CCW, The car shown in the lovely old black and white picture ( Letters, 13 April) is a Morris Minor. The type was current from 1928-1934 when it was superseded by the Morris Eight pre-series. Numerous updates were applied to the Minor during this period, the most major being a change from the original single overhead camshaft engine to a side-valve unit of the same 847cc capacity from early 1931. Mrs Speechly’s car would have the OHC engine coupled to a three-speed gearbox, and in fact would have shared all of its mechanical elements with the MG Midget sports car, chassis included. Nigel Stennett-Cox, North Walsham, Norfolk I was amused that the cover story in the issue in which Jason Keeling wrote to moan about what he sees as too much Ford coverage (13 April) was about... Ford values. I don’t mind reading news stories in CCW about Fords, so please keep ’em coming. Gordon Braithwaite, Leeds (Ford Escort MkI & MkII owner)
