Model Y Abbott Tourer
Advert Date: 12/09/2020 Advertised by: Andrew (member) on 07771 545757
AMX 289 is the only known surviving Model “Y” tourer bodied by E.D. Abbott Ltd. of Wrecclesham, near Farnham, Surrey. Abbott’s were well known in the 1930s for bodying the larger, more exotic saloons, but as the country was coming out of the Great Depression in the early thirties, needs must, and a commission to body small Fords could not be refused. Who commissioned Edward Abbott to build the 4-seater tourer is not known; Chaseside Motors or Dagenham Motors are possibles.
Andrew’s Abbott has been totally stripped down ready for a TLC assembly. All the Model “Y” and Abbott components are present under cover in his dry garage. The chassis has been cleaned and painted with black smooth Hammerite; the engine has been disassembled; the fuel tank has been oiled inside and painted outside. The aluminium body sits on jacks with most of the paint stripped; new ash timber is ready to make new side chassis-sill members; all body panels are complete, but the two offside short rad wings have been replaced by long rad ones. Finally, and importantly, all the original black upholstery panels and seats specific to the Abbott are present.
Details of E.D. Abbott Ltd. and this car are on pages 109/110 of the Ford Models Y&C book.
This is an important unique example of a special bodied Model “Y”, which needs to be lovingly, sympathetically and enthusiastically restored to its former glory. Andrew will be happy to let it go to the right person for £2000. Enthusiasts can contact Andrew on 07771 545757 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Price for Club Members is £7,750.00 - ovno, including the Publications I have and some spares. The Car is running and only needs some work on the Trafficators - I have installed a 6-Volt LED System but the Lights are too small and I think I also have an earthing issue with this System.
