The idea was simple, take a dog-eared but mechanically sound Ford Pop, chuck away the remains of its bodywork, and fit instead one of a large number of fibreglass bodies that would drop onto the Pop chassis.
The fact that many sidevalve Ford (and Austin) specials headed to the racing track, to compete in races held by the 750 Motor Club for instance, only served to fuel the interest in these cars.

 Caterham News | Caterham build for the future with Ford Sigma
Colin Chapman’s very first Seven back in 1957 drew its power from a Ford sidevalve engine, and whilst the 21st Century version of the British two-seater may be going back to its roots in name, that is certainly not the case in terms of performance.
The decision to move across to the lightweight and reliable Ford Sigma, combined with a new precision laser-cut and robot-welded chassis, signals a continued commitment by Caterham to evolve the legendary Seven using the very latest in technology and engineering quality.
The three power choices available to the home market will compliment the existing Cosworth tuned 2.3-litre unit (260bhp and a bespoke EU IV 200bhp) in the CSR, and the eagerly anticipated 2.0-litre 210bhp plant that is set to power the new Superlight R400 this summer.

Ford updated the Anglia in 1948 and continued the theme set by the pre-war E04A model, luckily the "new" E494A Anglia was only intended to be a stop-gap until the arrival of the 100E series in 1953.
The Anglia retained the sidevalve engine used previously and the only real changes were to the front end styling and some minor trim differences.

 Auto Channel Review: Ford Sidevalve Owners' Club   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Mystery solved: the sidevalve is a small Ford engine that ended up in many machines like boats and trains and even a mechanical elephant.
This site is dedicated to all things sidevalve and sidevalve-esque (which means that machinery which uses sidevalve derivatives is also represented at this site).
To the uninitiated (that would be me), the FSOC is the club for owners of Anglias, Prefects, Populars and related derivatives, produced between 1932 and 1962.

Although most of this site is aimed at fans of the E83W range of vans and pickups, many parts are in common to other sidevalves, and quite a few E83W owners also have a small fleet of other 8hp or 10hp Fords in their collection.
I've included ads pages for a selection of sit-up-and-beg Fords, later 100E types, and a handful of Ford 1172cc based specials for good measure.
You can post ads detailing Ford parts you want to sell, parts you need for a restoration project, literature wants, parts cars and related memorabilia.
