A restored Fordson Van on show at the Boroughbridge Classic Vehicle show in 2009

The Fordson E494C was a Light Van from the 1950-s based on the shape of the Ford Popular car and fitted with the Ford ? engine. The E494C was sold under the Fordson and Ford brands and fitted with the Van body or as a pickup.


A few original vans are on the preservation circuit but a lot were cannibalised for customising or used for banger racing and similar destructive motor sports. Most just rotted away.
