The Ford Squire was an estate version based on the Prefect 100E Car. It was only a two-door vehicle. The Squire used the shorter front doors from the four-door Prefect. This created a bigger load area in the rear, when the seats were down.
The Ford Squires were also converted into panel vans. The production run was from 1955 to 1959. The Squire used the same 1172cc engine as the Prefect. Total production was less than 18000 units in the four years. One would not consider it a really successful model.Worsbroodjies & Footlongs Tea Garden, cakes and puddings
The comparable Ford Anglia sedan was also converted into a lower spec station wagon. These were produced until 1961.
They were a little more successful. Production was just over 33000. They were branded as Escorts. That name was also used on the much more successful Ford Escort of the 1960’s.
Ford is such a popular brand, whether it’s British, German, American or Australian I am sure there are a number that will be at the Awesome Classic Westrand Car Show in August
The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form. Remember its a fun day, so don’t take it too seriously.
Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.
