Morning Stellan:
Your vehicle is a 1940 Ford used by British Forces. It is RHD with typical 9:00X13 tyres and wheels.

Default Same type?

Good morning Dog Robber!

Morning for you - time for evening beer in this old country.

I guess this another Ford. 1940?

Default Answer

M 1164001 to 1164420 V/4056 and V/4213 Car 4 Seater 4x2

Now,this is where it gets interesting! The 01A Regular Fordor Sedan assembled in Dagenham for the military is supposed to have had 6.00 x 16 wheels, although the 'diverted' 01A Saloon and Saloon Deluxe had 9.00x13 tyres. I assume that these latter were ex-French US Fords. Note no reference in the 1942 Ford listing of 'E01A' or 'C01A'or EC01A'.

The top photo looks as though it is an official shot, of a British order car..the Canadian C01A cars assembled in Aldershot appear to have had different blackout headlamps etc.
