Hazel Green – A Ford Prefect 107E 1960

The second lady in my life

Richard with Hazel Green at Watchet before departing on the Classic Tour of Exmoor 2006

HSL313 Hazel Green was born in April 1960.

First Registered as UDL 451.

Her first owner was a Mr S Cox of Wootton on the Isle of Wight.

She is a Ford Prefect 107E with an overhead valve engine and a four speed gearbox – a Compact 4 door saloon.

Colour: Green

Chassis number: 105E 130661

Engine number: 105E 130661

Cubic capacity: 997cc

Number of keepers: 9 since first registration.

 

 

 

She replaced the old 1,172cc side valve engine, 3 speed model – to many people she is like an old friend.

Without drastic change to the appearance she reminds people of the Anglia, Prefect and Popular of the early 1950s.

The sales literature of the day said that 4 adults can genuinely be seated. However, passengers in the back should make sure that the front seats are slid fully forward.

When new she cost £621 12s 6d (£621.72p) as a basic model. A heater was an optional extra which cost £9 10s (£9.50p), which she had when supplied.

Her length is 12ft 6ins; her weight unladen is 15.75 cwts, with a wheelbase of 7ft 3ins.

She has a 997cc engine which has a maximum speed of 72.9mph, with an acceleration of 0 – 50 in 16.6 seconds.

Original Registration: UDL 451 April 1960 on the Isle of Wight.

On 8th April 1982 – April 1983, UDL 451 moved through sale to the mainland of the UK.

There are no records of UDL 451 until her MOT at Horndean, Hants on 16th November 1995.

16/11/1995 66066 miles MOT    

So in 8 years, UDL 451 completed 395 miles.

In September 1999, UDL 451 was re-registered as HSL 313 (the original registration number was sold).

Her MOT at Walkford on 09/09/1999 gave a recorded mileage of 66410 miles. In 4 years, HSL313 completed 344 miles.

And so she arrives at her name of Hazel (HSL) Green (the car is Green all over).

09/09/1999 66410 miles MOT    
22/09/2000 69911 miles MOT    
10/02/2003 72201 miles MOT    

In June 2003 the car was purchased by Richard Growden, who is its current owner.

On 8th February 2004 the car was fitted with a new speedometer which had a recorded mileage of 48500.

21/12/2004 48536 miles MOT 72237 total engine miles

During 2004 Hazel Green was garaged for repairs which were completed in December. So from February to December Hazel green only completed 36 miles.

So Hazel Grenn is at present resting preparing to ride again…
