The Ford Model Y was produced by Ford Britain, Ford SAF and Ford Germany from 1932 to 1937. It was the first Ford car specifically designed for markets outside the United States, replacing the Model A in Europe. It was in production in England, where it is sometimes remembered as the "Ford Eight", reflecting its fiscal horsepower rating, from 1932 until September 1937, The car was also produced in France, from 1932 to 1934, and in Germany as the Ford Köln from 1933 to 1936.
Smaller numbers were assembled in Australia (where a coupé version was also produced), Japan, Latvia and in Spain nicknamed as the Ford Forito. Plans to build it in the U.S. were scrubbed when a cost accounting showed that it would only be slightly cheaper to build than the Ford Model B.
This 1934 Ford Model Y is a Canadian built right hand drive example that is described by the vendor as a very good example that runs and drives very well. The car is sound and the Cream paintwork presents well. The interior is also described as good and overall the car is a very original example that has the spare mounted on the rear of the car.
