Ford Eifel 1200 — 1937

The car was driven until the early 1960s and was repainted and then garaged until September this year. In the video below you can see with some effort it took removing it from a collapsed garage.

"Complete and pretty nice car that's been stored for 50 years will need a start-up service and review of the brakes. There's some rust and blisters. Carpets and a door cards are missing and seats need to be cleaned or redressed and side window is broken."

Description

This car had the same family ownership since the 1960s. The father of the current owner bought the car, and drove a little before it was stored in an outbuilding on the family farm near Arvika. It was freshly painted, waiting for a spare part, before it was due for the vehicle inspection. However, no such part ever appeared, so the car was left standing. (What was missing was a so-called knee joint, right front, which was the shock absorber at that time). The car worked well without the part, but Bilprovningen/MOT station couldn’t approve the car. Today, this part is available for purchase online for pennies, as it sat on many cars, including Ford and Opel.
A few years ago, an unusually snowy winter, the outhouse began to lean precariously from the weight of the snow. Last summer, the old owner's son and grandson decided to bring out the car. It was a bit of an exciting activity “as you see form the video below”. The car was in surprisingly good condition.

Facts about the model

Ford Eifel tillverkades av Ford i Tyskland och Ungern mellan 1935 och 1940. Modellen är besläktad i många detaljer med de samtida Ford Anglia och Ford Prefect.
Omkring 60 000 av Ford Eifel tillverkades. Motorn var en fyrcylindrig, fyrtakts 1172 cc som gav 34 hk (25 kW) vid 4.250 rpm. Den byggdes med många olika karosstyper, till exempel en tvådörrars sedan , en tvådörrars Cabrio coach med avdragbart textiltak, två- och fyrsitsiga cabriolet, tvåsitsiga roadster och en lätt lastbil. Den ersatte Ford Köln och blev själv ersatt med Ford Taunus. Modellen fick sitt namn efter högplatån Eifel i västra Tyskland.

  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
  • ATTENTION: Many of these cars are sold without valid Swedish registration documents, as spare parts.
