Ford Popular 103E (1953-1959)
The Ford Popular was basic transportation par excellence. Spartan in trim, it had hardly any instruments, tiny headlamps and painted bumpers and hubcaps. The Popular had a single (top-mounted) vacuum-operated windscreen wiper. – I remember the wiper cutting out altogether when going uphill in a head wind! Basically the Popular was the 1949 Anglia fitted with the Prefect’s 1172 cc engine. Mechanically crude but strong and sturdy motor cars.
