The Ford Model C was made beginning in 1934 in Britain (Dagenham) and Germany (Cologne) by Ford Motor Company. It had an 1172 cc (71.5 ci) four-cylinder sidevalve engine delivering 34 hp (25 kW). It was big brother to the smaller Ford Y, which had a 933 cc (57 ci) engine. The styling was inspired by the 1934 Ford V8, only smaller. In 1935, the grille and bonnet (hood) on the British line was facelifted and the mark was changed to CX.

In 1937, the body was upgraded again and the design of the British and German product lines became more different. The German line was named Eifel after the mountain range near Cologne. The British equivalent was named the Ford Ten (Model 7W).
