Ford Eight, Model 7Y, replaced the Model Y Popular during 1937 (for 1938). It is mechanically similar, having a 7 ft 6 in wheelbase chassis with transverse springing and 933-cc (56.6 x 92.5 mm) side-valve Four engine, rated at 7.96 HP. Gearbox is three-speed, tyre size 4.50-17. The new Eight has modernized body styling and pressed steel wheels. There is also a 5-cwt Van variant.
Ford Ten, Model 7W superseded the Model C De Luxe in May 1937. It is distinguishable from the Model 7Y Eight by its radiator grille which has three vertical divisions. The engine is a 10 HP 1172-cc (63.5 x 92.5 mm) side-valve Four, similar to that of the preceding Model C. Wheelbase is 7 ft 10 in.
Ford V8 Model 62 has 22 HP 2.2-litre V8 engine and was first introduced in 1936. Wheelbase is 9 ft 1/4 in. The Saloon is the only body style offered and cost £210. The chassis is, however, available for special bodywork and is priced at £160. Very much the same car is produced by Matford in France.
Ford V8 Model 78, 30 HP, is available with a variety of body styles. Most are imported from Canada. (It is believed that only the Sedan (saloon) was assembled at the Dagenham Ford plant.)
