I have just spoken to a classic car sales company that recommended I come to you guys. Hope it pays off :-/. A friend from work asked me to look at a model railway to sell for her mother who lost her husband seven months ago. They were going to throw everything out when I noticed a Ford bonnet on the wall (which I now know to be a grill). I knew it would be worth something so offered to try to find a buyer (please note that I am making nothing out of this, I want to get her money to give to her grandchildren).

I have attached some photographs and would appreciate being told what model it is from and how to sell it. I am guessing that for those restoring this type of ford Thames van this is like gold dust as it basically has no scratches or defects bar a tiny bit of rust on the small silver metal that runs from the badge to the top.

Any advice would be helpful and sincerely appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hi Richard. That appears to be the nose off of a 1950's Ford Popular. Not sure what it is worth or where best to sell but I would suggest some Classic Car clubs or custom car clubs as a lot of the Poplar's were made into hotrods.


Good luck with it
