Ford Model Y & C Car Club

Identification

Black Model Y and Burgundy Model 7Y There are two basic models catered for by the club, the Model Y and the Model C. The Y (1932 to 1937) being the 8HP and the C (1934 to 1937) the 10HP. The Model Y range included Two and Four Door saloons and a Van, plus for a short time a three wheeled version suitable door to door deliveries involving trailer towing. This version was known as the Tug.

In 1933 the styling was changed, panels affected included the radiator grille and mudguards. Vehicles built prior to this restyle have become known as Shortrad's and the later version as Longrad's. The Model C range also had an update in 1935 and the designation was changed from C to CX.

The external revisions mainly affect the radiator grille and the bonnet sides. The C has a plain vertical bar grille with a chrome surround and the hood sides have horizontal louvres and one locking handle whilst the CX has a grille with 4 chrome chevrons in addition to the surround and also has bonnet sides with vertical louvres with 3 chrome strips and two locking handles.
