A bit blurred, but I think it's a 1937 Ford V8-62, a British only model with the smaller 2227cc V8.

I think that model was called Ford 22. I saw one just recently here in NZ that was a recent import. The car here is a Lincoln Zephyr. Note the headlights are in the front guards/fenders. The Ford 22 has the headlights closer to the radiator. Link to "forums.aaca.org"

@nzcarnerd - DVLA details for 279 YUE (the NZ car) show (under "FordV8" as make) as:
Date of Liability 01 10 2011
Date of First Registration 05 06 1937
Year of Manufacture 1937
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 3164cc
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type PETROL
Export Marker Y
Vehicle Status Licence Due to Expire
Vehicle Colour BLACK
Vehicle Type Approval Not Available
So a recent export from UK. I can't date the registration issue for xxx YUE series, but as YUE xxx was Warwickshire in 1958, this car was re-registered at some point in last 50 years.

This comment can be deleted if it's irrelevant for "our" car.

The Lincoln Zephyr was 4378cc, and was a V12.

I agree that the car above is a Lincoln rather than a V8-62.

Dsl, thanks for that info - as usual the registration clerk got the engine size wrong. 279 YUE was definitely a Ford 22 - at was badged as such and looking under the bonnet the engine was definitely the smaller V8. I guess that that Ford 22 would be a very rare car - I can't imagine many survived WW2. I think the post war Pilot was basically the same chassis but apart from the first few, was fitted with the bigger V8 engine. They were assembled here in NZ alongside the physically bigger American models which I think mostly used the same 221 engine.

@ nzcarnerd: Glass's entry for Ford 22 is as follows (I'm just parrotting slightly condensed info with no clue what it means):
Ford V8 "Twenty-Two" 1936-9, 21.6 hp, 2230cc.
Oct 35 Sloping rectangular V-radiator grille, bonnet louvres of equal length, wire wheels, wheelbase 9'4".
Sept 36 Fully curved sides to radiator grille, horizontal grid vent on bonnet sides, perforated disc wheels, built-in rear number plate,, wheelbase 9'0.75"
Feb 37 (slight engine cooling improvements)
Oct 37 (minor interior fitting changes)
Oct 38 (ditto)
Nov 38 solid driveshaft
Feb 39 5" centre arm-rest in place of 8".

That's all - no end date. Sept 36 onwards wheelbase 9'0.75" matches Sept 47 onwards Pilot [E71A ] data, supporting your comment above.
