Yeah I'm one of em a 1953 8 horse power Ford Anglia side valve

Added extra's Vacuum windscreen wipers which went like lightening down hills, but they stopped altogether going back up the bu55ers.

No heater

6 volt battery which too often needed the help from the starting handle.

3 speed box, no syncro on first gear, double de-clutching was required.

Those were the day of happy motoring.
