Looks like a '37 Ford Eight [7Y]like this one: /vehicle_80831-Ford-Eight-7Y-1937.html
(I mean: with an estate body.)

(Hum… I read that [7Y] appeared in 1938.)

I was thinking a bit bigger than 7Y (but not much bigger) - compare size to the other van. And a normal 7Y was about as slow as a lamppost, so additional weight of extended body would have made it as mobile as concrete.

Ford(son) 7Y van or later E04C with estate car body possibly by Martin Walter or Coombes of Guildford. Briggs also built an all steel estate post war on the E494C. These vans were also sold as a chassis/scuttle for customer or coachbuilder bodies to be fitted. The Eight engine used developed about 23 horse power from its 933 cc, so it would have been able to keep up with other similar sized vehicles of the period, like the Austin Eight and the Morris Z, and would have beaten an Austin Seven (10.5 bhp) in the traffic light Grand Prix.

This example has the smaller headlights of the post-war production, but the higher mounted door mirror of the pre-war, the grille, from the 7Y, was used until the introduction of the E494C, but the plates (DMT?) indicate pre-war.

Have constructed ID to give best description, even if a bit of a hybrid phrase. Cars and vans were built on same assembly line, and I guess these would have been sold as Ford for public. Plate is DMF or DMT - both started 1936, so early for 7Y; DMT finished Nov 36, but Glass's lists DMF as undateable series reserved for government departments with no end point.

Figures for Anglia E04A, same engine, very similar body: - Top speed 57.9mph; 0 - 50 38.3 secs.
Compare Morris Minor MM 4-door 61mph and 38.5 seconds to 50mph.
