The FSOC's Advertising Policy
Although anyone can send us an advert to be published in both the Club magazine or on this website, in this, the general classified advertisement area of the site, we only publish Ford side-valve powered vehicles for sale; other items: spares, books, manuals and "wants" are published in the Members-only area. The idea behind this policy is to provide further incentive to join the Club - we're keen that potential members can find a car to buy easily enough, but for anything else we'd rather you joined our happy band! It must also be noted that "Wanted" adverts from non-members will be posted at the Club's discretion only.
Place an advert
To get an advert published in the magazine and on this site, please fill out the On-line Advertising Form. Then use your "Back" button to return here.
Important advice to remember when responding to adverts
Please make sure you are entirely satisfied that the item you are buying is as described by the vendor - ask lots of questions and, if possible, make sure you inspect the item fully in person before parting with your hard-earned cash. Where necessary (in the case of an engine or gearbox for example) ask to remove the head, sump or other appropriate cover to confirm the part's condition. Unfortunately, the Ford Sidevalve Owners' Club cannot take any responsibility for items purchased from private inviduals through this website.
The club would also like to point out that the DVLA may refuse to register a vehicle which does not have a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and/or engine number, and may ask the Police to inspect them. Buyers are also reminded that attempting to register a vehicle using registration details which do not relate to it will also be problematic.
The adverts are presented with the most recent at the top of each group; the date of insertion appears in the body of the advert and, unless you tell us otherwise, the adverts will be removed after a couple of months or so.
Here's a list of all the classifieds adverts you'll find here; please click on area you'd like to focus on, or simply scan down the page to browse through them all:
- Pre-war - e.g. Ford Model Y, Ford Model C, Ford 7Y, Ford 7W, etc.
- Post-war Upright - e.g. Ford Anglia E494A, Ford Prefect E493A, Ford Popular 103E, etc.
- 100E & 107E - e.g. Ford Anglia 100E, Ford Prefect 100E & 107E, Ford Popular 100E, Escort & Squire, etc.
