The Ford Eifel was manufactured in Germany between 1935 and 1940. The Eifel replaced the Ford Koln and was itself later replaced by the Ford Taunus. One can see the similarity to the Ford Prefect and the Ford Anglia manufactured at Dagenham in the UK.
The model was named after the Eifel mountain range in western Germany and came in several body styles. Two door sedans, cabriolets, two seater roadsters and even an LDV.
Driven by a four-cylinder, side-valve 1172 cc engine delivering 25Kw at over 4000 rpm the Eifel had a three-speed manual gear box with synchromesh on 2nd and 3rd .
Notice how the grill on the 1937 and 1938 models was a wraparound, as opposed to the 1936 model where the grill was quite straight.Competition Classes Enter Your Vehicle
