Ford offered a 5cwt Van version of the Ford Model Y from 1932 to 1937 with the 933cc sidevalve engine. In 1936 Ford commercials adopted the name 'Fordson'. The Model Y was developed into the English-designed Ford 7Y 8hp in 1937 and a 5cwt Fordson Van was based on this model. In 1945 the 7Y Van was relaunched with slight changes as the E04C until 1948. The revised Ford Anglia was turned into the E494C Van from 1948 to 1954.
This Fordson Thames E494C 5cwt Van was first registered in 1953. The car has the 933 CC 4 cylinder engine and a 3 speed manual gearbox. In 1999 the Fordson was imported into the Netherlands. In 2013, the current owner bought it as a promotion car. The car has not been used on the road for the last 12 years. The car has a Dutch registration.
