Following the success of the Consul/Zephyr range of 1950 Ford applied the same engineering and styling principles to its new 100E range launched in 1953. The two car range consisted of the two door Anglia and the four door Prefect, both versions being available in "standard" and Deluxe versions.
The 100E Prefect had a more up-market appearance than the lowly Anglia with chrome headlamp surrounds and a distinctive chrome grille. The door window surrounds were chrome finished and many Prefects carried two-tone paintwork. Standard equipment included the gutless 1172cc sidevalve engine, three speed gearbox and vacuum wipers. The Prefect sold well and was eventually replaced by an OHV, 107E Prefect in 1959.
