Ford Model C Ten Saloon

Fords like this attracted the biggest-ever crowd at Brooklands

The Model C was introduced in 1934 and cost £135 for the cheapest 2-door saloon. This popular saloon was bought when nine months old by a local family who used it for over 50 years in and around Weybridge and also for family holidays which included a tour of Scotland.

This car recalls the Ford Gymkhana held at Brooklands in June 1939 which attracted the Track’s biggest-ever crowd. Tickets were distributed through Ford dealers and visitors saw circus-style demonstrations (including acts like driving through hoops of fire) with the latest Ford models and competitions open to the Ford-owning public.
