Model A & B Powered Vehicle Models Chart

Ford Motor Company, Ltd. England

Overview

This page details car and truck vehicle models produced in Great Britain by the Ford Motor Company, Ltd. from 1928 through 1940, and which all used Model A & B type four cylinder engines.

Beginning in 1931, these vehicles were produced at Ford's manufacturing facility at Dagenham, England. Dagenham was a complete manufacturing facility much like the Rouge, and not just a vehicle assembly plant.

These vehicles produced at Dagenham used Model A, AA, AF, B, BB, BF, and E98T engines, and were variously marketed under the Ford, Fordson, and Thames marketing brands.

In some cases the rows of the chart show the year by year evolution of changes of the marketing and branding names of vehicles, as identified on Instruction Books and advertising, while the technical details remained the same.

As an example, Model AAB, Model BB, and Commercial Vehicle truck models were essentially the same vehicles in progression, with updated naming and identification.

Additionally, vehicles listed below are arranged by type, such as Passenger, Van & Light Delivery, Normal Control, and Forward Control (cab over engine).

The data in the tables above has been carefully compiled from Ford-published literature in my personal collection including:

I am always looking for additional related Ford England literature and data to more accurately describe its offerings, as the number of surviving actual vehicles (as well as literature) is small.
