Me and my wheels… courtesy of: Charlie Choong Here’s a photo taken in Kampar. Recognise the car? By the way, the lady leaning against the car is our donor’s mother.

The Prefect was fairly reliable with a trusty side valve motor. Ipoh Remembered August 2, 2018 at 9:25 pm - Reply Does resemble the Prefect, I agree, but it is probably a 1956 Escort Estate, especially if the photograph was taken in the latter half of the 1950s. In any event it’s certainly a Ford. Mano August 3, 2018 at 7:03 am - Reply You are right, Ipoh Remembered…as always! 🙂 I was working on the premise that the Prefect in estate guise was badged as the Anglia instead. Although, the actual ‘Harry Porter’ Anglia was also available as an estate. The estate or station wagon (as the Yanks called them) is also known as a shooting break. ika August 3, 2018 at 9:30 am - Reply Thanks for the details of the vehicle. Last night donor Charlie advised that the photo was taken at Telok Muruh, Lumut where his family had a beach house. Incidentally, Sybil Kathigasu also had a house on that beach, but both were taken over by the government in the 1960s to build Lumut Naval Base. Ipoh Remembered August 3, 2018 at 11:13 am - Reply Dear Mano … I assume you’re referring to the “Harry Potter” movies. Alas I’ve never seen them! As for the Prefect (and yes, the initially quite similar Anglia), I don’t think there was an Estate version in Malaya in the ’50s. —— Dear ika … In Ipoh, the ’56 Escort Estate would have been sold at Universal Cars (part of the Wearne empire). I’ve sent you a copy of an advertisement. Feel free to use it as you see fit — although I doubt you need it: the details provided by Charlie Choong seem much more interesting. Ipoh Remembered August 3, 2018 at 11:16 am - Reply Oops. I forgot to mention that in 1956 there was also a Ford Squire, very similar to the Escort Estate but with fancier trim. It, too, would have been available in Ipoh at Universal Cars. Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
