Model Y Abbott Tourer
Advert Date: 12/09/2020 Advertised by: Andrew (member)
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is ready to make new side chassis-sill members; all body panels are complete, but the two offside short rad wings have been replaced by long rad ones.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.

SOLD My May 1933 Short Radiator Four Door Ford Model Y is for sale. Long standing member of the Model Y & C Club selling the car due to lack of use of the vehicle. This car needs to be run and enjoyed more than it is at the moment. The
car was restored over 35 years ago and I have had it on the road ever since. The car is still in very nice clean useable condition. It starts and runs well, having benefited from loads of new items replaced on it recently.
The car has had a replacement steering box (from the club), it has had a new carburettor, fuel pump and pipe, HT leads and distributor caps, new sparks plugs and points, and a new battery. It also has had a stainless steel exhaust fitted; the starter and dynamo have been overhauled by Days Engineering Ltd. The brakes have also been relined (still bedding in).
The car also comes with loads of spares and paperwork history.
