Ford 7W, Prefect E93A, E493A
In 1937 the Model CX was superceded by the Ford 7W 10hp designed in England. The 7W used the same 1172cc 10hp engine as the Model CX, and was available in 2-door and 4-door versions, the 2-door resembling the 7Y 8hp. In 1938 the E93A replaced the 7W and was given the name 'Ford Prefect' to fit in with Ford's new naming policy ('Ford Pilot' and 'Ford Anglia' were part of this naming). After the war the Ford Prefect was revised with integral headlamps and a new grille, and the four door body was the main product. In 1953 the new modern Ford Prefect version of the Ford 100E range replaced these 1930s cars.
