One of the great little workhorses of the fifties and sixties, the 300E van proved reliable and thoroughly competent in a multitude of commercial enterprises. It was created from the Ford Anglia and Prefect 100E saloons, with a body shell replicated from the Ford Squire estate.

This now rare early Thames 300E was the subject of an older restoration and often shown around the West Country by its proud builder owner, who has now sadly passed on. It is finished in dark green with good and straight panel work (the paint colour would certainly alert us to any defects!). The grey interior has survived well, considering that it is a commercial vehicle and we are told that the mechanical aspect has no known faults; indeed the Thames van is apparently a pleasure to drive.

Supplied with Ford is the V5C registration certificate, the original instruction book and several old road tax discs. A more attractive and useable little van will be hard to find.
