Data from "Ford Popular and the small side valves" - Dave Turner - Osprey publishing.

Number plates are not always reliable, it’s best to look carefully at what is presented and the subject car displays many characteristics of very early production, notwithstanding its numberplate.

I did not (and do not) make an identification without research and if guesswork is involved I will say so.

Please revert to my original description.

The numberplate may read CG 3982, County Council of Southampton (later Hampshire) commenced at CG 3224 on 1st January 1933. I would therefore suggest, if this is taken as correct, 1st quarter of 1933.
