Fords smaller commercial

Although this site is primarily focused on the 10cwt Fordson and Thames commercials, built between 1938 and 1957, there is room for mention of other small commercials of the era, especially when from the same Ford stable!

If you have any interesting pics that would look good on here, by all means email them over and I'll feature them here too.

5cwt Fordson found in San Diego USA

Reg sent these pics over, of a very original 5cwt that he saw at a car show in L.A. early in 2005. To read more about this interesting 'find', have a look at Dean (the 5cwt owner's) website - Anglia Obsolete. Thankfully the hot rod brigade didn't get their hands on this little van first.
Reg has a few sidevalves himself, including the 2 E83Ws he has on the E83W Register page (US section).

5cwt Fordson spotted at Malvern 2004

Fordson 5cwt
I saw this 5cwt Fordson parked up with a few other Ford sidevalves at the Malvern Showground in 2004. It was probably on the FSOC club stand, but I can't remember for sure now. There are also some other sidevalve pics on my Classic Fords site too, once you've finished here.

5cwt Fordson spotted at Tatton Park 2003

This nice little 5cwt appears at a number of shows in the North West of England.
