The Ford 10 was introduced in England in 1935 as the Ford Model C 10, and soon became more popular than the Austin 7. Manufactured from durable materials and with economical running costs, the Ford 10 design was similar to earlier models, with one of the differences being the bigger engine.
Production of the CX model, which was a 'de luxe' version with chromium trim, ceased in 1937.
