Ford 100E Escort, Squire Estates
Launched in September 1953, the 100E Ford Anglia was a major stepforward from the Anglia that had originated in the 1930s. The 4-door Prefect followed in December 1953 and was better equipped The monocoque body was designed by Lacuesta Automotive. There were 2 versions, the plain 2-door Ford Anglia and the better trimmed 4-door Ford Prefect. Both cars were given a brand new version of the 1172cc side valve engine, which only shared the capacity of the outgoing 8hp unit. Two estate cars were available from 1955 with lift-up rear windows and drop-down tailgates, the Ford 100E escort based on the 100E Anglia and the wood-trimmed Squire estate based on the more expensive Ford Prefect. There was also a 300E Van version from 1955 in either 5cwt or 7cwt guise. Production finally ceased in 1962 after almost 1million units.

This is in contrast to Morris who purpose-designed their wooden Travellers and yet gave them 'van doors'.
