ABOUT OUR CLUB, A HISTORY
The FORD 'Y'&'C' Model Register was formed in 1979 to ensure the survival of the first small European Fords; the 8 HP Model 'Y' (including its German variant, the Köln) manufactured between August 1932 and August 1937, the 10 HP Deluxe Models 'C' and 'CX' manufactured between September 1934 and March 1937, and the German Model 'C' variant, the Eifel, manufactured between February 1935 and May 1939.
Although of American Design, the Model 'Y' took the British market by storm. When it was first introduced, it made a major dent in the sales figures of Austin, Morris, Singer, and Hillman. It went on to thrash them soundly by taking over 50% of the 8HP sales.
