1958 Ford Prefect 100E 1.2 petrol
A classic car in both senses
Engine renovation at 30,000 miles.
Gear box renovation at 65,000 miles.
Welding at various times.
The car is responsive and easy to handle. It has no need for power steering etc.
The car does not cruise at high speed, but then there were no motorways and very few dual carriageways when the model was launched in 1953.
It is a little thirsty, averaging about 33 miles per gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
