A SPORTS 2 -SEATER ON THE 8 H .P. FORD. PLENTY OF LUGGAGE ACCOMMODATION, COMFORTABLE SEATING, AND FULL EQUIPMENT OF THE PEACOCK FORD.
/THE lively performance of the Ford range of models has encouraged coachbuilders to fit them with
special bodies. One of the latest is a twoseater marketed by F. H. Peacock & Co., 219, Balham High Road, S.W.17.
The front view and bonnet follows the sturdy and pleasing lines of the ordinary 8 h.p. car. A sloping tail covers the portion of the car ordinarily occupied by the rear seats, and the spare wheel is sunk into the tail. The sides of the body are cut away to afford good elbow room for driver and passenger, and there are two wide doors.
The two front seats are independent and slide on runners, and as there are no rear passengers to bother about, they can be pushed back far enough to allow leg room for the tallest of occupants. The tail portion is available as a luggage locker and is capable of taking half a dozen suitcases or a large trunk. The hood disappears behind. the scats and side curtains are provided. The safety glass screen can be opened right up and is fitted with a dual Lucas wiper. Bumpers are fitted fore and aft.
Cubby holes in the dash and large pockets in the doors should give ample room for gloves, maps and the other small articles which have to be stowed.
The car combines a good appearance with really sensible accommodation for two people. It is priced very reasonably at £165.
