1949 Ford Pilot 19,189 (Not Warranted) ££10,000 + buyers premium


Description from The Vendor:

I’ve owned the Pilot for a few years now and have enjoyed many summers days out in her. She has also been the centre piece of two weddings. This car is a pleasure to drive and having had a restoration, which was completed to a high standard, is in great condition. You won’t find many better.


Auctioneers Notes:

This is an excellent example of a V8 Pilot.  They are very comfortable and a good cruising car.  They can keep up with modern traffic, having a 3.6 lit V8 engine, producing 85 BHP and are able to get close to 90 mph.

She was totally restored and retrimmed in smart biscuit leather interior a few years ago.  There are full photo records on file.  In the file you also find 2 original instruction manuals, lub charts and a well used repair manual.  Also, a great many “Pilot Affairs” Owners Club Magazines in 2 files and a few invoices from recent years.  A great car, very usable and under valued at the moment.  Tipped to increase in value.  May be viewed strictly by appointment.
