The British found in the backyard a Ford car buried 50 years agoApril 12, 2020
A resident of Great Britain during the period of self-isolation decided to improve the backyard in his country house. Here he found the “buried” Ford Popular 103e, lying under a layer of earth for half a century.
In the British town of Hekmondweike, a local resident found in the backyard of his house a buried Ford Popular 103e car. This station wagon was produced by the British division of the brand from 1953 to 1962, and at the time of its market debut was considered the most budget car in the UK. An unusual find made by the British John Brashaw was told in the BBC. It is known that the man decided to improve his plot while on vacation due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The car body, hidden for many years by a layer of earth, has almost completely decayed. However, the British still managed to determine from the dashboard exactly when he found the instance he found from the conveyor – from 1955 to 1956.
The man failed to find the owners of the car, as well as to find out at least some information about him. Even the surviving license plate did not help. And this despite the fact that in the UK it is customary to store data about all registered cars. John Brayshaw’s neighbors recalled that in the 1950s, the secret service of England lived in their town. Ford found underground was painted gray – this shade was found on military cars of that time. What to do with his find, the Briton has not yet decided. He is definitely not going to restore the Ford.
